 Godziek must have been born upside down because he flipped that thing way smoother than anyone else that has simply tried to jump it. Insane.

 It's: "True respect and and a lot of joy that a guy from Poland taking part in an event as loud as this.. and also about the fact that he qualified so high. bravo".

The gap between the languages is not so huge, as it may seem. Just look at the core parts of words and they are often international. Here are the examples of his comment:
- Polish "startuje" consists of "start" and "-uje". It has the meaning of the verb: "to start", but it has the suffix describing the third person singular (he).
- Polish "kwalifikacjach" consists in the declined noun of "kwalifikacje" - meaning "qualifications" (here: kwa.. = qua..).
- Polish "uplasował" means "he took place", and notice Polish "..plaso.." is very similar to English "place".

Afterall it is not so complicated. Just needs some will.

 I promise you, he just went "hold my beer I got this" with that backflip ;]
They called him a big mountain rider.... You can see it from far - tank-top/wife beater proves that ;]

 And Claudio's track preview Wink

 I agree with both of you!
  • 10 1
 ..and I agree with the three of you. Claudio's pitch among the cliffs of Rampage would be rememberable.

 Im so proud of Szymon !!! He looks really smooth on this bike , first run on rampage in his life and huge backflip LOL !!
  • 3 0
 Supported, with the addition of the fact that there are not so many places (if any) to practice a backflip this size in Poland.

 I wonder if we will see tsunami flip in finals or some other ninja stuff.
  • 4 2
 hahahha yeaa imagine tsunami flip over the canyon gap!!

 Tank top, shorts to wear and only knee-pads, helmet and gloves as protection... This guy sure knows what he is doing, but for his own and his relatives' sake: Wear some damn protection!

 Szymon Grodziek should be pronounced a bit closer like this: [ ʃəmɔ:n grɔ:dʒjek ]
  • 8 0
 Ok, thanks, but I have a question... how do you pronounce ʃəmɔ:n grɔ:dʒjek
  • 4 0
 You're welcome. These is English phonetic alphabet. Pronounciation can be wirtten down this way. It mainly appears in dictionaries. Each English course should consist of reading this aphabet.

It is not an English name, so it is not likely that a similar sequence of the symbols appears in any English word. I thought this could help. If it does not help, it is time to listen how he introduces himself at 14th second of the following video:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A8t-6YQWOo

I posted this, because I find the commenter of the video above simply incompetent with his not checking the right pronounciation. I could barely understand who is being introduced.

 Ha, you're right on there, the commentator didn't even try to pronounce it properly. I don't like these commentators, they speak like they are on a TV ad selling water pistols to 10 year old boys; they overdo it and sound fake.

 Totally agree, rampage commentator SUCKS! speaking in general, not being specific

 Brawo Szymon. Może to trochę patetyczne, ale to tacy ludzie jak Ty, dają mi jeszcze powody do dumy iż jestem Polakiem.
Trzymam kciuki !!!
