 Honestly, i prefer fmb. Bring on the neg props but fest just isnt as exciting to watch competition wise because it just isnt spectator orientated

 Well i said that wrong, i really enjoy watching both but fmb is more transparent.

 Fest series is sick and fmb is sick too. I like that there are more kinds of riding to watch, keeps it interessting

 Despite the fact that both of them are fun to watch, you've gotta pick one or the other and then be a dick about it (like I did.)

 Some of the guys I ride with think FMB is killing dirt jump, I agree to a point, tho fmb is sick but if it took more of a jam/chilled out format like fest it could be better

 If Rampage was added to the Fest Series, I'd choose Fest Series all day long. Big stuff big bikes.

 I would like to think if I had the opportunity to hit those I would do it but that fly over camera angle may have changed my mind...

 So is the Hoff actually gonna be there? Heard he is not bad on a moto actually. Maybe he'll be testing the jumps? Might even bring along Pammy and the gang, could get pretty loose. Guess I should stay up for this one.

 I had the discussion we all must have had at some point.... A mate still thinks we'd all be this good if we lived in Whistler and were that young... Na. I can honestly say even if I had the biggest trails in the world right outside by house and I was 18 years old I still wouldn't have the bollocks to ever hit these. Are these guys double ard or am I just a proper pansy?

 its just little by little over a long period of time to get to that point. they didn't just wake up and start hitting 80 foot gaps and back flipping DH bikes. every year you seriously hurt yourself hinders progression as well as you have time out and time back to get back on form and recovery. if you started at 13 or 14 and pushed yourself every year to do a little bit more, a little faster, a little higher, and little further... you'd be there too by your mid 20's (as long as you didn't let fear get the best of you). takes a good bit of the entire mix... skill, luck, health, balls, time, ambition, etc. i'm 32 and its the first year i've ever had a DH bike, and before 3 or 4 years ago, i hadn't ridden a mountain bike since i was 16. lots of catching up to do, but no qualms about where i am. just gotta have fun and keep on going and hope you don't seriously f*ck yourself up haha. i'll go drag knees on a motorbike around the street at 100mph all day, but i still haven't gone off a 10-12ft. cliff drop on my DH bike... everything is unique, doesn't mean you're a pansy.

 Cheers Sweatypants.... I enjoyed reading your reply as you kinda summed up my own situation! I'm 33 and also only started riding when I about 25. My background is in surfing and I spent my entire teens and early 20s travelling to find proper surf. It wasn't until I paddled out on a big day in Durban, South Africa, that I truly shit my pants. That's where I found my limit- it was no longer fun. I worked on fitness but I couldn't ever really enjoy surf over 8ft. The same has applied to my riding- and my limit has proven to be significantly smaller than these jumps! I never thought I'd even hit a double, let alone learn 360s- so I'm stoked to say I'm a better rider than I ever thought I would be. However, these jumps are at least 3-4 times bigger than I would ever hit without doubt.

 yea man. i spent most all of my late teens and entire 20s boxing, drifting cars, and ripping motorbikes around. some stuff translates directly like carrying a ton of speed down a trail and body positioning, or drifting the rear around turns, other stuff doesn't translate at all. as soon as the trail turns super steep-tech or the double goes into the 20-30 foot range though, i give pause and hesitate some. road race bikes and drift cars never leave the ground (unless you're about to get real hurt haha). its just unfamiliar is all, but it let's me know i just need more time in the air and to be steadily increasing speeds, heights, and distances until they feel routine. all there is too it i guess. the fact that its so much fun makes it pretty easy to keep on keeping on and keep trying. i dunno... i'm not in a rush to accomplish anything but having more fun, so it keeps the pressure off.
