 Connor MacFarlane is my darkhorse pick

 Yup. He's baller, and seems to have a good attitude. Says something when other great riders are rooting for you.

 Definitely some better freeride/DH riders, but it seems slightly unfair when Semanuk and Rheeder are the top two slopestyle riders in the world who will be able to add extra flair to all the tricks. I know it's about the line, too. The Fest series certainly warmed a lot these guys' nuts up. Vink, Sorge, R-Dawg, Azzy, Lacon. Freeride field is stacked.

 I really want Bas to do well, he was awesome in shoulder season but i'm pretty sure that Semenuk, Rheeder and Andreu have a good chance of winning. Nico Vink should do pretty good as well. Can wait!

 How do you think their parents feel? Probably hoped for at least one of them to have a ho-hum office job. Gotta be a full-time job worrying about 2 kids @ rampage!

 Apropos Van Steenbergens, yesterday Tom posted a clip of his bike literally *exploding* as he cased the lip of the canyon gap landing in practice.
I kid you not, his impact sounds like a rifleshot:
I have yet to see any further news on this anywhere in the press.
Does anyone know if Tom is OK & still set to ride?

 @Veloscente I would of thought if it was bad we would of heard something with the amount of coverage this year, but I did see a pic of the bike the rear wheel was shagged but the frame looked ok so can only assume he would be ok, well I hope so as I want to see the front flip over it!

 Looks like we won't be seeing a frontflip over the canyon this year...(from Tom at least!)

 I had the opportunity to meat Connor MacFarlane, and may I say it was great. I was heading down crabapple hits in whistler to check them out and he was there filming, and we stuck around and watched. He was very nice, and a very relaxed rider, pulling some sweet table's over the last hit. It sure was a pleasure to meet him, and I will be cheering him on in rampage. Good luck to all the riders.

 Friday cannot come quick enough. Rooting for Sam Reynolds cause he's local (ish) but I reckon Semenuk is taking it this year. He has that burning look in his eyes Wink
