Dual slalom on steroids .. I Dont know if Brian Lopes can hang!
(Aug 14, 2016 at 12:55)
Lope is 44 and still destroys! No, he does not have circus tricks in his bag but he still throws down a ton of style!
(Aug 15, 2016 at 4:21)
: 'circus tricks' ... really?
(Aug 15, 2016 at 11:50)

Such a rad event. Tippie is my hero! Always the biggest smile!

Wynn does well too... and Cam.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 11:34)
: Wynn is good, but i prefer the crisp clean audio through Tippies mic as appose to Wyns water bottle.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 17:27)
: What about the sausage? I thought that came through pretty clear?
(Aug 15, 2016 at 22:01)
: Wyn is my favorite right now. Just the fact that he went around asking slope riders how they felt about DH and DH riders how they felt about dirt jumping, I don't know that's the kind of shit I want to pick the brains of pro's about. He's the f*cking man, and don't talk shit about his microphones all of you that duck was great.
(Aug 14, 2016 at 12:36)
finally fair rules
(Aug 15, 2016 at 10:41)
Tippie is Feekin Awesome! Thats some Mad Monster Dual Slalom. Great video I'm Stoked for the racers they smoked the track like Meats, and Herbs ( Well Done!) Now Cheers!
(Aug 15, 2016 at 12:23)
impossible to watch tippie do anything without having to smile
(Aug 15, 2016 at 21:34)
Tommy G was amazing, I love his style! Kinda disappointed that some more basic tricks got negative points though cause all the riders were sending it and they all aren't ss riders so expecting crazy tricks out of everyone is unrealistic :/ however it was an awesome event for sure!
(Aug 15, 2016 at 10:00)
Damn. Watts should've made it farther...dude was so clean and fast too. Honestly I don't think the judging was consistent. Nobles should have won his last heat too. A racer throwin tricks almost beyond his ability should score a little higher than a slopestyle master throwin something way within their capabilities, esp if there is a rotation. Negatives on some non tricks and zeros for the same on other runs. Quit trying to manipulate the rider lineups. Kerr should've been out earlier too. Done ranting. Oh, and by the way...I love this shit.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 11:29)
Is there a point deduction for a repeat on a trick? if not, there should be. And with the racers doing tricks out of their comfort zone, you could say the same for SS riders trying to go out their comfort zone by going faster like hitting corners harder etc... works both ways in a sense because going fast can be pretty scary. And those who can go fast and do good/smart tricks deserve a win.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 12:42)
Agreed. Although a lot of SS riders can handle the speed and berms and aren't far off on speed all around. Most are great at the pump track too. Judging just seemed a little off even though the new format is dope.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 13:59)
: but then you could also argue that they are therefore the better rider suited for the event and that the racers in order to win must throw some tricks as it isn't just an ordinary DS race. You can't really give the racers some slack just because they aren't comfortable with tricks, they enter the event by their own choice and if they expect to win they must be able to throw tricks and be fast. allot of SS riders have that skill set thus they often times come out on top or near. Speed and style is a hard one to judge though. I doubt it will ever be perfect. At least it's fun, entertaining and offers variety.
(edit) not directed at you btw but allot of the hate towards Speed and Style judging is because some people pick sides and say (but that guy did crazy tricks) or (that guy finished way before the other guy) and not taking into account that it is speed AND style, both factors matter. The crazy trick guy may not have been fast enough to out weigh the score or the racer may not have had the right tricks to add onto their lead to out weigh the score also.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 17:05)
Mainly just talking about Nobles throwin down a couple tricks that I just thought he never had. I think he got judged a little unfairly. The SS riders are def the ones for this event. If racers can throw in a rotation and still put down the speed then cool, otherwise I think they shouldn't even make the cut. Again I think a couple of non tricked jumps got zero and some got negative points...just a little more consistency. Def fun to watch and I'd hate to be a judge. Although I'd rather judge this than the SS event, that shit is so tight.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 21:36)
Brandon semenuk should participate in this I would love to see how he does
(Aug 14, 2016 at 12:43)
It's even better than slopestyle... Pace and style! Style and rivalry hand in hand.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 0:05)
honestly this years dual speed and style had me screaming, I always considered it a lesser event but this shit is crazy.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 6:21)
Just eat Cliff bars and you can do it to.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 13:05)
Cliff bars taste like gravel.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 10:06)
shit, dual slalom has just been kicked in the ass & sent into the 21st century.

The Bobke of mountain biking!

Brendog is the winner of speed and style....always.

I guess I must be confused. It's called "Speed and Style", but it appears as if "style" doesn't factor in at all? The guy who took 1st was doing some boring (albeit smooth) tricks compared to everyone else.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 4:02)
I have noticed the same thing. I don't know how is this tendency big... But anyway if it is "Speed and style" the "style" must be considered more. IMHO.
(Aug 15, 2016 at 6:33)
Think the race between the brothers negates that a bit. Obviously the dude throwing down the rotations won there
(Aug 15, 2016 at 11:35)
Genon had speed as well... it's 'Speed' and style
(Aug 15, 2016 at 14:59)
I would say the balance was in favor of the "speed" before this event. The balance finally seemed perfect this event because the riders were doing big tricks with decent times. I predict this event will be perfect the next couple of years. But then the balance will shift towards the "style" side and they will have to revamp the judging criteria. Because tricks are progressing rapidly but the race times wont drop that drastically.
(Aug 20, 2016 at 19:29)
I really don't like how I got downvoted. All I was asking for was some clarification. But I guess 14-year olds can't be bothered these days. After all it's human nature to fear that which we do not understand.
