 Severe lack of footage of Kaos riding the jump, he can second place and there was only one clip of him riding? r i g g e d

 It could have gone either way for 1 & 2, but R-Dogg was bringin it back consistantly a bit smoother. Kaos had a few of those pucker moments, as he acknowledged with the hospital comment. His whips were insane though!! He and R-Dogg were on it all night!

 god f*cking damn rdogs whip is ridiculously good looking. Kaos surprised me, typically the racer guys can whip but not like that.

on another note I will say I've never enjoyed when people say "make it moto" I've kind of always enjoyed mountain biking more then motocross because it's less bro ish, but I guess from an outsider we all look like f*cking bros anyways. Hate to be a gatekeeper about it but I can think of a handful of mall crawling moto bros in my network of people that I find halfway cringey, the less association the better. Oh well. Shmoto deez nuts, I ride mountainous bicycles.

 Results of this event should be computer sensor generated. To the dislike of judges.
  • + 1
 Please tell me how that would work...
  • + 3
 Put a sensor on the front and back of each contestants frame, and then measure the displacement. MTB is serious business.

 @SithBike: its not about how far you can whip... its about how steezy you look doing it. computers cant measure steez

 @larsmeier: measure the amount of time and when in the jump this displacement takes place = steez. Anything to avoid the human judgement factor.

 @SithBike: not exactly. whatever puts you to sleep at night buddy.
