 Agreed. His bar spins are so much doper than anyone else that was running. And the one handed 3's. So sick. I don't think people realize that he's pretty much completely backwards with those. So sick.

 Fifth edition that I follow on live and I can't remember ever seeing as much crashes! The hole suspens was "Is this one able to complete a full run?"

Dunno if it's course's fault or wind's fault, but a bit frustrating to watch.

 In my opinion it just made it super exciting because you had no idea what was going to happen and who's going to do well and who's not (usually it's always the same names on top of the scoreboard, this time you had no idea who was going to win). Even though I thought it was entertaining, it must have been terrible for the riders to ride in such conditions. The typical thing when something starts to get more mainstream and contests are being pushed over the limits of the athletes so that it is more interesting to watch / more people watch / they make more money off advertisements. Not something I'm a big fan of.

 Well, 1st run I didn't get it either. But 2nd run it was Crystal clear what went wrong...
Just a pity that he's 1st or nothing... I mean, even after losing Speed casing his jump after the half cab, he could have delivered a decent run, even if not 1st though. But that's not his thiing . So he just rolled down... A pity, in my opinion. Still looking Forward to his Videos productions.
BTW: Way to go Tommy G!!!! That guy has some serious style goin on Smile

 Still feeling pissed off for Rogatkin tho!!! Looks like they put that landing just a meter too far for him Big Grin

 I feel like this isn't the first time with him doing almost exactly that. I don't understand why he wouldn't run a slopestyle bike to avoid flat tires, and also just get thicker tires. If he's going to huck everything instead of doing it smoothly, he might as well take some precautions against flats.

 @VTwintips: Definitely not the first time he's landed short, he landed the corked 7 onto the spine somewhere else too... Rogatkin does do some big tricks on jumps other guys aren't doing them on, probably because pulling back so hard on that jump would mean you come up short... Semenuk suffered the same fate and so did a few other riders, the course needs to be designed to better accommodate those kind of tricks with more room for error perhaps

 @ctd07: Well he could always just... Pedal...get some more speed.
  • 6 0
 @VTwintips: I don't think different tires would have saved him in that circumstance haha.

 @leon-forfar: I reckon it was a good thing his tires exploded. who knows where how hard he world have crashed if they held up.

 Firstly he went freeride and miss the course in the beginning. Second run overrotate halfcab from second drop and didnt get enough speed to jump (cased and lost all speed)
