 his first name isn't Brandon?

 @poah: pretty sure CARSON Storch won best trick mate

 @Bennnnnnnybike: I stand corrected then

 How come it didn't win people's choice either?! My mouth dropped on that run...

 @LukeDKlassen: People could (and did) vote before the competition even started... so not very representative of what happened on the runs
  • 13 1
 @LukeDKlassen: I don't think the first place winner should be allowed to win the people's choice award, they already get 150k plus a Polaris that's worth 20k, while most of the others leave with 5k. Pretty unfair considering what kind of runs Bizet and Andreu threw down.

 I think doing a 360 off a cliff would be way more horrifying then a double back on a pretty controlled booter/landing (just look what happened to aggy). But I can't even barspin so take anything I have to say with a grain of salt.

 Bizet killed it and from the perspective I had on the canyon - he should have won!!

 @pigit77: And Semenuk already won here a polaris last year...

 @Davichin: exactly dude!

 @pigit77: 150k is the total price purse. Which means it is spilt unevenly between the top riders. Sadly I couldn't find any hints or pictures with cheques showing how much the winner and runner up took.

"This year each athlete will receive a $5,000 appearance fee, with the prize purse increasing from $100,000 last year to $150,000 for 2016. As with last year, a Polaris RZR XP 1000 Turbo is also up for grabs for the rider lucky enough to win the People's Choice Award."

My guess is something like 50k for the winner, 25k second, 15k third, and so on towards the 10th place... don't know... adding up to 150k.

 Stoked to see Bizet throw down a solid run! His contest results so often fail to show what he's capable of.

 This is just fair to all of us. Semenuk got "people,s choice Award" and screwed the people by not even victory lap.... #screwUSemenuk

 @badpotato: Seriously? In this exposed terrain I wouldn't do a second run if I didn't need to. Think about it...

 @MrEtnie: ok, I would neither as myself, but as a "people's champion", with all the skills he has - I would just go down having fun.
  • 14 2
 @badpotato: Not sure you realise that even these guys are shit scared of the risks, it's not really an exaggeration that you could die up there, why go twice ?

Also Brandon won the award before the even was over so the fan bois kinda f*cked it up.

 @bigburd: especially, knowing he won people's award, he should have used his run gor his fans.

 @badpotato: the problem that a "just for fun run" has the potential to be a career ender when you factor in the terrain and conditions. A lot of guys just waved off the second run all together.. Did Brandon even know he got the fan's choice? Heck, Andreu was a in front for a while before he even did a run...

 I think he could have won if he had linked that suicide no handed into the double back on his second run.

 That course is so crazy, especially this year's. The first section looks like you just have to get by and survive it by the skin of your teeth, and then the second part is like 'ok, now you can actually start your run'.

 If steepness doesn't come thru that well in video, f*** me - that top section is uber-mental!!

 Yeah, the broadcast didn't do it any justice, it's actually the scariest thing ever.

 Wonder if he would have place higher had he done a 3 or something instead of a backflip on that upper hit. Number 2 and number 3 both did essentially the same thing.... one did flips on their run... one did 3's. But both did variations of the same trick. I think that's why the 1 slot was so solid... mad variation.

 A perfectly executed double back flip, and still 3 points short of Semenuk. I really thought Bizet put down the best run.... Not taking anything away from Semenuk, he's a phenomenal rider, but I don't think it was a winning run.
  • 1 1
 Rhis is a good run,definitely top 3 run, but Antoine didnt got robbed at all.. to be honest for me the one that got robbed was Carson Storch.. Storch's run was definitely a run for second position.. Antoine only has the double back flip pretty much

 I'm leaning towards software stabilization, gimbal would be too bulky and heavy to mount under the visor.
