 As much as I love crankworx, a World Cup replay would be very much appreciated

 TFDH- for future reference, Red Bull always has the replay up pretty right after the event is over on their website. It's pretty tight/impressive how they do it so quickly.

 Did Zink crash cause his wheel tacoed or did his wheel taco because he crashed? This event is getting better and better in terms of riding but the commentating and judging still has a ways to go. Case in point that bullshit when they said Straight lost a jump with a tailwhip vs no trick at all. What were the commentators looking at? They should have picked that up. Also not having any style should be some kind of penalty. Any 'racer' can do a table, x-up, whip, bar turn or tuck.

 I would love to see the scoring changed so that the speed and style are a little more on par. If one rider nails awesome tricks, while the other bombs the course, the one second bonus won't really do much. Maybe instead of just judging just the two jumps, the judging should be on the style of the entire run and the time bonus should be the difference in the riders scores

 MrNovember- That's always been the core issue with speed and style... it's impressive how well they got it right from the first time. Being a new event, I'm sure they'll keep on tweaking it because it seems impossible to accurately judge an event that's based on something definite (time) that's incorporated with something subjective (tricks/style). Although I don't agree with judging style on the whole course because that would kind of eliminate the racing aspect. I think they should have a slightly longer course with some techy rock garden sections and maybe an extra jump if that helps balance it out.

 Yeah that's a good point. You shouldn't really be able to win the event with just speed or just style. I mean it's called speed AND style, so really you should need both to win the event. Being so new I'm sure there will be many tweaks and iterations and that it can only get better from here. It's still a pretty awesome event to watch
