 personally i'd rather see a bunch of kids yoloing into an airbag then a bunch of amateur fmb riders do tricks on a shitty mulch jump and labeling it 'PRO FMB CONTEST'.

 For $20 plus entrance, I'm backflipping into the bag all day! Plus i'm 41 so there should be a separate category.

 Building a ramp would cost $1g i bet since its around $120/hr for trucking/machine time/permits plus you still need material. Dirt isnt free

 It's a great idea. If u are not a pro it's hard to want to even try anything into dirt even if it's soft. It's should be fun for everyone

 Ya I agree. Im mad at the organisers for trying to get more people at the show. Trying to get kids interested in the sport. Those guys are a** holes.

 Could they not bring in some gold or even mulch for a landing? Pretty hilarious they have a grand in budget for prizes, but they couldn't spend a tenth of that to have even a quasi legitimate competition. It's funny how we make fun of Euroland parking lot FMB stops, but we can't even get a dirt landing for an event with the same prize money as a bronze level FMB stop. Probably the dumbest comp I've ever seen.

 Don't you think this might actually be intended as a great marketing opportunity for the company operating the air bag?
Plus, in what world can you deliver and shape the amount of dirt needed for a big air ramp into a city center location for $100?

 Why not?? Would you rather not have a free airbag sesh at a bike convention? If you can't comprehend why the bike community do these kinds of events, you should really just stay home(and maybe shut your mouth?). I'd rather sesh with some pros then watch them hit a temporary mulch jump.. Kids remember this kinda stuff forever; why not introduce them to the local bike communities and businesses as well?
