 dont get me wrong open loops are cool and all but not the place for one on a true slopestyle course kind of a gimmick that is more appropriate for a 30 second edit

 i cant see many if any tricks being thrown of it, but i think its different and creative and i like it

 Since when did loops become a gimmick appropriate only for 30 second edits? Wink

They could be a "fad" in contests and they'll disappear eventually but remember that drops were once considered gimmicky because everyone hit them but didn't trick them. Just wait until the open loop is built to perfection and people start tricking them regularly.

Hell, even if it turned out to be a gimmick, who cares? It's something different and it keeps things interesting. That's how slope contests should always be.

 anything that bring a rider to almost a complete stop should be a no brainer to not have in a slope comp

 he got a cool cork flip out of it, for sure it'll get barred or at least back-tabled. maybe a little awkward, but slope style really needs something new, at least they're trying.

 Just because it's new doesn't mean it doesn't have potential... I bet in the years to come riders will find new tricks to pull, and ways to make this feature the norm all slopestyle courses.

 funny how far soderstrom has made, when keeping in mind how much he hades doing flips Smile but i guees the tailwhip madness, is what makes us all love him (and his energy and attitude)

 The course is next level. If soderstrom is struggling to get through a run it its got to be difficult. Can't wait to watch the show tomorrow it's gonna be a banger for sure!
