Yay he's not wearing a squid lid!
(Sep 23, 2014 at 16:28)
didnt recognize him with the visor on
(Sep 23, 2014 at 20:01)
Rad as fuck to see you on a DH man! Nice to see you in this event! KILL IIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!
(Sep 23, 2014 at 21:38)
So does that mean he's not doing any cash rolls?
(Sep 24, 2014 at 1:29)
now i have got no more complaints about him Go Rogatkin go !!!
(Sep 23, 2014 at 15:05)
i like this kid, he doesnt annoy me when he talks. cant say that about every 18 year old
(Sep 23, 2014 at 19:32)
he enunciates so well!
(Sep 23, 2014 at 13:51)
Not gonna lie, that visor does make him seem a hell of a lot more likeable... Nice to see him looking comfortable on the dh bike and throwing in a bit more style than usual too
(Sep 23, 2014 at 16:18)
The first thing you said is pretty ignorant.
(Sep 23, 2014 at 17:36)
I'm agreeing with the squidlid diss. He looked like a jackass.
(Sep 23, 2014 at 17:44)
So you really judge him based on how he looks to that extent? He didn't seem likable before because he had no visor? He looked like a jackass because he had no visor? What about Sam Pilgrim or Reynolds who wear half-lids and have their front teeth knocked out? Definitely don't look like jackasses right?
(Sep 23, 2014 at 18:16)
If you saw a car that was equivalent to a ferrari but looked like a minivan would you consider it less likeable then a ferrari? Of course you would.
(Sep 23, 2014 at 18:47)
^ You mean like this?
It has certain qualities about it that would have me liking it more than a Ferrari...
(Sep 23, 2014 at 18:49)
Ya I'd take the Ferrari. But I don't think thats the right comparison. I don't choose my friends based on how they look. What are you a middle school girl?
(Sep 23, 2014 at 18:54)
It's similar to how difficult it is to take somebody seriously whenever they're wearing crocs.
(Sep 23, 2014 at 19:24)
or socks with sandals
(Sep 23, 2014 at 21:11)
Thats possibly the shittiest comparison ever
(Sep 24, 2014 at 9:39)
Name one comparison that is possibly better than not taking somebody seriously who wears sandals with socks or crocs in general. Again, I'll reinforce that I might judge them to be a bit unfashionable, and I might stereotype them to be a bit nerdy, but that's where my bigotry and most peoples bigotry ends.
If somebody had a "f*ck n*ggerS" shirt on, I'd say that if the person changed the shirt, they'd seem more likable, but we are talking about a visor here. He's not attacking anybody by not wearing a visor!
(Sep 24, 2014 at 9:42)
The point is he looked ridiculous. Now he doesn't. Squidlids look ridiculous. I don't understand why you take so much offense at that.
(Sep 24, 2014 at 10:11)
Pinkbike users shouldn't be pretentious pricks who care more about looking cool than riding bikes. When that is escalated from ughh the squidlid looks so noobish, but I commend the guy on his reasoning to wearing a squidlid makes a person unlikable, that's where you draw a line.
Its kind of like how that Australian told his take on gun control: Mass murder happens. Australians go, ehhhhh we probably aught to get rid of the guns. Vs Americans who have mass murder. Americans go: YOU CAN'T TAKE MY GUNS!
You've gotta be realistic about situations, otherwise we have monkeys arguing over rules rather than the problem itself. Whether or not its intolerant and if it affects people.
(Sep 24, 2014 at 10:47)
Way to keep things in context bud.
(Sep 24, 2014 at 11:19)
You used the irrelevant ferrari metaphor before I used a contextually appropriate metaphor! What are you talking about?
(Sep 24, 2014 at 12:29)
The ferrari comparison was saying that he was good either way except he looked better one way. You can save your opinions on gun control for a different time.
(Sep 24, 2014 at 13:12)
I did not state my opinion on gun control.
(Sep 23, 2014 at 13:54)
I'v seen potatoes ride with more style but thumbs up on the visor
(Sep 23, 2014 at 14:11)
They must be some extremely styled potatoes then mate. Haha tbh I see where your coming from but Nicoli's style is based more on precision than for example lacondeguy's steezy moto style.
(Sep 23, 2014 at 17:05)
(Sep 23, 2014 at 14:50)
First time i saw him ride a DH bike it looked way more awful than this video, just give him some time and he will be as stylish as everyone else! Soon he will have a Monster or Redbull lid on his head
(Sep 23, 2014 at 17:32)
Pretty sure he already had a Monster helmet on his head…
(Sep 24, 2014 at 17:15)
NO HASHTAGS EVER!!!!
(Sep 24, 2014 at 17:19)
its so hilarious reading comments about this guys helmet and his riding style. he is a better rider and has more style then every single person on this site. you yes you hes better then you of course you could disprove it by beating him in an event, but im sure you've all got an excuse as to why you aren't in it. i hope he does great in this comp and shuts the haters up. im sure they'll climb right up his ass within one or two successful events, start wearing visorless helmets, and still be mediocre at riding bikes.
(Sep 23, 2014 at 13:42)
(Sep 24, 2014 at 17:43)
Everyone is so concerned about this kid's helmet, and his style. If you were doing whatever lame ass trick you think is sick, with your visor on your helmet, and this kid follows you up with a cash roll or triple whip, who do you think people are gonna give a shit about?
(Sep 23, 2014 at 19:56)
Seems like a really nice kid, hope he does well
(Sep 23, 2014 at 16:47)
Wow, backflip on a pretty stock demo 8. That's awesome!
(Sep 23, 2014 at 15:17)
i hate and i potate...
(Sep 23, 2014 at 20:16)
Lol triple whip the canyon gap
(Sep 23, 2014 at 17:07)
loving his progress onto in big bike but someone tell him about one finger braking, good luck to him though
(Sep 23, 2014 at 20:05)
Song name ????? pls
(Sep 24, 2014 at 1:38)
style is absent
(Sep 24, 2014 at 2:44)
this isn't rampage?? that's just a f*cking dirt jump course
(Sep 24, 2014 at 3:24)
Dead Sailor party. Dude's style looks like Han Solo frozen in carbonite.

Hé s gonna tailwhip that wooden sender
(Sep 23, 2014 at 17:27)
I'd love to see him tailwhip with those dual crown forks...
(Sep 23, 2014 at 20:03)
Rogy makes it happen. LOL
(Sep 23, 2014 at 21:21)
Chuck CAN do it
