....favorite part of the live stream was that one berm (the one just below blind drop) that absolutely exploded as he hit it and rocks/dirt just rained down on everyone.

 favorite part for me as well, many riders absolutely killed that berm but brage definitely won that competition. a shame that there was no good pic of it in the post-coverage, one rarely sees a berm explode like that..

 The F = ma into that berm was something to behold. What a rider.

 That rock section before the road drop looks even scarier from a POV, can't imagine it in real life. Gnarly.

 Brilliant! Really enjoyed watching his run on the Red Bull coverage and this really puts it into perspective. Also pleased he didn't rip another pair of cords Smile

 the overage was incredible for this especially since you could watch each guy's entire run instead of skipping the first 2 minutes.

 @adrennan: it’s not like they are choosing to skip part of everyone’s run on the regular WC coverage. They can’t show full runs when there are multiple riders on course at once.

 @sino428: I mean I understand that. But it's cool that by limiting the number of people racing, you can watch full runs

 Was going crazy over the jumps and now im just mindblown on how the hell do you hit a bit of the corner at 40-60km/h and suddenly change direction like its nothing, even if i had the skill to do it, the G forces would make me moan like a lil b***

 Brage is awesome, he did some crazy free ride stuff for a certain edit... might be called real mtb, but not sure. hehe, Plus, he got 4th at hardline!! I mean, compare that to the other pure "freeriders" in the field... he was way ahead of them. I know he was a junior racer, but still: very impressive!

 Not a racer but maybe someone can fill me in on this....what is with the whistle bursts from the officials on the side? What/who are they signalling with those? I assume its not for the rider
  • 7 0
 The whistles announce that a rider is coming, in case anyone further down is standing on the track or something like that.
  • 7 0
 Course marshalls have whistles to alert everyone else down-course from them when a rider has passed them by.

 I think it is in order to attend to a rider more quickly if they crash. The course marshals line the track, so If someone passes one marshal and doesn't make it to the next one, the two nearest marshals will know and be able to come check on the rider.

 I assume Brage is in rampage list.....

 Do you think the Rampage hill would survive?

 I think that as something of a blond between racing and freeride, hardline should not onlt be judged on time, but also feature other awards, such as wildest run, best corner, most style or near miss. Could be cool considering not all the riders were riding flat out

 So gnarly! So fast! How do you mentally keep up with the terrain changing that fast? Definitely Rampage material.

 Style style style. You can have tricks, you can have speed but style is what everyone really wants, because when you've got that everything looks good.

 But you won our hearts Brage. I’d love to see an amplitude and style scoring added to this even if it’s just us spectators.

 Too much air time. That should have been the winning run! Love this guy.

 Awesome run. When he almost lost it, it seemed exciting even from the camera view.
