 Where the hell is my 5g's foul? Run it you fartknockers.
  • + 21
 I didn't make the finals and don't care because Jordie's vid was the best and he needs the extra cash because porridge can be expensive. Maybe one day they'll have an AM submission contest.

 Dave Herr's north shore video gets my vote! Amazing balance on those skinnies. Plus he's not a sponsored rider.
  • + 12
 I paid for my gimbal and Gopro....????

 Where do I get the the free gopros?!

 @RedBurn: I don’t think any of the entries are GoPro athletes my man..

 Stoked to make it into the finals!! I had plenty of bails riding this trail, including a big one that will keep me off the bike for the rest of the summer, which I'll throw up on IG later this week: www.instagram.com/ddangerousddave.

 Sorry to hear about your injury, I've just visited your insta ... you have great runs! Fast recovery and back to trails soon.
  • + 4
 That was messed up how easy you made that look.

 what trail this year Dave? I remember last year(?) or maybe year before that on Imonatur was my favorite!
  • + 1
 @laxguy: immonator, Fromme. It's great to practice on. Lots of lower skinnies. The rollercoaster is tricky as heck though. Bailed more then a couple times on 'er.
  • + 2
 @laxguy: this is Salvation on Mt. Seymour: www.trailforks.com/trails/salvation. I also submitted a run down Imonator, but it didn't make the cut this time (it was filmed in low light on my old 1st gen GoPro Session and wasn't the greatest quality, although I shaved a good 15+ seconds off my 2016 entry). Salvation is similar, but with bigger consequences and tricky uneven log rides. I'd rank them as the two best trails on the shore in terms of features.

 @Jokesterwild @laxguy is it just me or did my video change since this morning?
  • + 2
 @dangerousdave: Ahhh yeah... it's definitely coming up as your immonator run right now.
  • + 2
 @dangerousdave: yeah thats the wrong video now.. someone should fix that. i mean its a sick video but still, so is the new one!

 @laxguy: Back in business!

 Those sand dune pow turns look surreal.

 Was hesitated between Jordie Lunn, Jacob Spera and Dave Herr. All three had a great runs. Hard to decide. Love the flow of Jordie's run including all stuff - big jumps, steep drops and road gap!
  • + 2
 same here
  • + 12
 Stoked to be in the running!

1. Not all sponsored riders got a free camera (me included)
2. The bit of support helps all riders more than you can imagine. We don't get rich doing this! On that note, Jordie's line is unreal! It's so gnarly to link all those features together in one run.
  • + 14
 Seconded: I also paid for my camera.
And thanks mark! I think we not rode better lines yesterday though hahahaha
  • + 3
 @jorg-tron: That run had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I for sure thought you were going to hit that stump at the end, sounds like you thought you were as well. Awesome trail dude and I know it took a ton of work. You got my vote for sure.

 @mmattews rad to see the vid here!
  • + 16
 It's gotta be Jordie! The people's champ.
  • + 0
 That skinny ramp is madness looking up from the bottom
  • + 5
 Composition and Framing (25%): So is this just the angle you set the camera at or.....?
Perspective and Degree of Difficulty of Shooting (25%): All shot using helmet or chesty..wow such a high degree of difficulty and unique perspective! I've never seen those before!
Performance and Style (25%): 7/10 sponsored riders would agree they did well here.
Overall Beauty and Lighting (25%): either the camera can't work fast enough to keep up with Bryn's riding or those protune settings are mangled af.

 I love that they post the criteria and then almost don't follow it at all. They just pick a few pro riders and go with the gnarliest line. There were riders with much better lighting, composition and perspective. GoPro! Start picking some real riders for these contests! Stop playing Pro Favorite..
  • + 5
 Dave Herr and Jacob Spera are my favourites anyway. The vids of them are mindblowing fu$&ing crazy!!!
  • + 4
 Ive voted for Dave Herr, He used to inspire me when i was a kid learning trials, its great to see him still going strong! Good luck Dave!
  • + 1
 Did anyone else notice that the "view entry" page didn't actually list all of the entries?? I uploaded twice and both times at the end when it was at 99% it said error and then uploaded my videos without a caption or anything else..

www.pinkbike.com/video/488432

Either way here's my entry and I was stoked on it! 5am for the perfect lighting ????
  • + 2
 it might be because your video is longer than 2 minutes ... Frown i think the contest rules stipulated a 2min maximum clip ..
  • - 1
 Party foul for showing off secret trail.
  • + 2
 @vapidoscar: no such thing
  • + 1
 @RedBurn: ahhh dang! You're right man.. whoops!
  • + 2
 I also noticed the difference in the 'view entries' page, I uploaded 5 clips and not a single one made it into the 'view entries' page, I am wondering if they were disqualified for some reason? I would love to know all the specific rules on how this works if they are interested in sharing them!
  • + 2
 Lighting was sick! Good work
  • + 3
 Dave Here all the way. It was unique. He's still keeping skinnys alive well done!
  • + 1
 Wohooo made it to the top ten! Insane videos from everyone. The dune carving looks unreal, can't imagine the hike up that beast. KC Deans chute follow cam is pure nuts with the zero visibility.
  • + 3
 wtf no one thought Killian Bron sand dunes was awesome and stunning footage?
  • - 1
 watched them all - thats all you got GoPro? there was only 1 vid of someone NOT riding another well ridden line and he was cruising down sand dunes (the closest to getting a vote). Get some good videos, I dont care who is in the video all those videos are average at best. Really weak selection -
I will abstain from voting.
  • + 1
 Dang man, thought I had a shot. Guess I'll have to put more focus on this for next time. Seems like you have to GoPro to get into a contest like this.
  • + 2
 Jordie is savage. Go and get it my son!
  • + 1
 I voted for a guy who's video is not on a bike park. The theme was any line ,not a present line.
  • + 1
 Simon Drouin you managed to pass under a tree with your 6.8 ft you should win just for this feat!! Nice video good luck!!
  • + 2
 All i know is that it better not be a bike park line
  • + 1
 All of these vid's were Good..But, I'm having a tough time deciding between Jordie, and Dave Herr's videos..Hmmmm.
  • + 2
 Dave all the way
  • + 2
 Woah dude Dustalanche!
