 THERE IS NO WAY THAT 1ST RUN BY AGGY DESERVES THAT SCORE. THE ONLY THING THAT SETS HIM APART FROM SUCH HEAVY COMPETITION IS THAT DROP AND THAT DOESNT TRUMP SEMENUK'S WHOLE RUN IM SORRY
  • 109 4
 100% Agreed.
  • 131 3
 I AGREE WITH YOU ANGUS MATE. I’M ALSO SO UPSET ABOUT BIZET. NOW THAT WOULD’VE BEEN A HIGHSCORING RUN
  • 30 2
 Agreed, no disrespect to him, it was big but nothing imaginative and nowhere near some of the others

 I almost stopped watching i was so mad when I saw that score. And Sorge's score was inflated too.

 Almost think that Kyle Strait 1st run will get a 99... Irony mode off.

 I think you're forgetting that tricks is just 1/4 of the result. There is "Fluidity and Style, Air and Amplitude, Tricks and Line Choice". As well as that huge drop suicide looked pretty mental to me. But I'm not here to argue, just adding another point of view. Cheers.
  • 40 3
 Honestly I don't know if Brandon got robbed, I missed his run, but Sorge and Agassiz shouldn't have been scored that high.
  • 32 3
 It's like a consolation padding score since he's qualified first last 3 years. Like, awww, you get an extra 5.
  • 17 1
 I feel like once they gave aggy that score they had to give sorge and andreu high score cuz they had similar lines, I think they inflated the scores a bit
  • 8 2
 It's all about that drop, from what I heard it sounds like Aggy and Andreu weren't letting other riders on it (Which is fair) but it then brings up a disparity with scores being based on 1 feature that only a couple riders can even get to.

 Semenuk was way underscored. That nose bonk to drift/hip was just poetry.... he just makes everything look too easy.

 Semenuk's run had a good flow, but not quite as big backflip or 3 as Zink's for example. I feel he should've got like 91-92 points.
  • 30 2
 From what I've seen so far it should be Semenuk first, Lacondeguy second, and maybe Aggy/Genon third... But I'm not a judge, so what do I know. And more to that point, is there a reason they haven't made Rampage Rider Judged yet?

 I just watched a re-run of sorges 1st place run not knowing thats what it was, as he rode under the finish I was thinking, well that was faster than others but this is getting boring watching everyone do the same thing. We need some top level rides..... then I saw it was a re-run and thought.... OOOPS my bad that was the first place run.

 Real problem, I think, is that judges have very little time to actually judge, few minutes, no time for much comparison, replay... and they have to judge on the moment, don't have time like us to look at the performances all together as a whole. Plus they may have different perspective on the runs.

  • 3 1
 Thank f*cking god people are realizing it was Zink who should have been scored a lot higher. Semenuk was scored slightly low but nothing terrible. This was RAMPAGEEE!!! Not sketchy single drop to slopestyle course-page. Half, if not 2/3rds of the score takes place in the first steep section off the start.

From what I saw, all the top riders had it except one person's line was more in the sketchy stuff and you cannot argue, is overall way more gnarly. Zink threw the biggest 3 off the craziest drop that rivals what others were straight airing or doing a no-hander over. Oh let's not forget about a backflip he tossed in on another huge stepdown.

So not only was his top section way friggen gnarlier, his tricks were more gnarly and still smooth, and his bottom section with a more gnarly feature that he did a trick over that other people were doing the same on a wooden feature. Zink should have won. That was the best Rampage run ever witnessed... maybe Andreau's as well. Paul Bas (really hoping the news continues to be good) if he had rode it fully out would have taken the win also... wow, a lot of insanity this year. Semenuk's was by far the most steezy.
  • 2 0
 agreed. his lines up top were crazy and attacked
  • 159 5
 Lacondeguy gets 95.75 for that Insane run (3 flips) and Kurt Sorge gets higher score of 96.50 for a 1 flip? Are we

 Amdreu is repetitive in his tricks. And his line is the same as last year.

 The whole event was an awesome sight to behold! Can't understand why people would get so upset about judging to the point of not even enjoying it. Every rider interviewed says being there is nothing like you see on TV, I'm sure certain runs look better on TV than live hence the freakouts in the judging
  • 4 1
 Yeah, the judging was wack but shouldn't take away from the epicness of the event and the lines that everybody threw down. I watch rampage for the inspiration and entertainment. Who places 1st really doesn't matter to me. All the riders pushed their limits beyond what we thought was possible. BTW, based on my observations, if you compete in rampage, it usally means you have a hot girlfriend there to help you out.
  • 7 2
 Sorge, i love ya man, really bummed you didn't get to compete the last two years, but your run was not even a 90. i'd say an 88 tops. i think brendogs run was more entertaining.
  • 5 2
 I had a whole lot of wtf when Sorge score came but then I rewatched. It was pretty epic. Gnar off the top, a backflip and a no hander, then going absolutely fucking massive off that drop, seriously I'd love a measurement on that. Then his backflip nohander was just beautiful. He may not have landed as many tricks as Semenuk but he went bigger and had a less groomed steeper line.
  • 4 3
 I was there and I don't think anyone remembers how deep sorge sent that drop, in real life he probably dropped 70 feet. He went farther than Paul and Genon. On top of his flips and steeze . Totally deserved!

 I think Rampage has got to the stage where we, as spectators, have to move beyond the judging (difficult) and just appreciate the mind-blowing riding.

Also, Cam McCaul’s commentary was absolutely brilliant. His mixture of excitement, genuine technical talk and informative introductions for newcomers is exactly what Rampage has been missing until now.
  • 11 0
 I agree, Cam even bridges the gap between the sports' enthusiasts and the casual spectators. He holds the right amount of technical chat not to be boring to those watching from outside the biking community, but has the fluidity to entertain the initiated ones.

 I want to take a moment here and just commend Cam for being NICE. He really is just a nice fucking guy with his commentating, even the runs you see that you know definitely won't even touch podium, he has nothing but good things to say about all the riders. So Cam, if you read this goddamnit thank for being nice. Keep being nice. It's nice. nice is nice.

 Yes Monster Energy rider bought Redbull judges - it's capitalism and it works
  • 2 2
 You can neg prop all you want. The thing is that they overscored Lacondeguy run last year and it didn't really matter cause it was best run anyway, so who cares. But It has transfered to this year competition, cause they had to give same points for the same run. Which leads to obvious, there is no point of having more than one year on a same venue (especially if it's small like this one with 30plus riders invites).

 He was definitely as stylish as always, I felt Zink deserved a higher score as well, it's hard to judge on TV, I thought
the cameras were positioned in favour of Semenuk as well (not on purpose of course), I saw all his tricks clearly and from good angles. Whereas some other riders lines were obscured or shot from angles where you can't judge how gnarly the features are.

 I've got an idea:

Why not just let all the finalists have their two runs first and THEN do the judging? That way you could really compare ALL the runs relative to each other, and maybe (you never know though) there wouldn't be such ridiculous unwarranted scores like that 96.5.

 These riders need to unite to get trained judges or judges that are former riders. These judges have no idea what they are talking about. They need to have done the tricks to understand. Their scores made no sense. Some of the riders in the lead did the same line as ZInk. He's the only one that could do what he did. This has been the same story with these judges the last few comps.

 My bet is PB poll... Semenuk wins. I've watched his run and Sorges run multiple times now. Frustrating. I'd be pissed if I was Semenuk. Pissed. Sorge went huge and fast... but if that's all they were looking at then TMAC shoulda got more than an 82. That low score on his qualifying run ultimately led to him getting hurt. No way he adds that triple in if he sees scores like they handed out today.

 Guys need to be paying attention. A lot of people just try to do a safety run on the first run and get on the board. What they need to realize is that more than likely you're only gonna get one shot at it. Every year the afternoon wind blows out run 2. I said the same thing the last few years... I'd rather see the finals go to 2 days than not see everyone get their second runs in. Lesson to learn... put it all in on the first run. Period.

  • 10 7
 I get that tricks are important for a good score but it seems like the scoring is a little too skewed in that direction. It's kinda frustrating because you watch some of those lines and just to ride them is absolutely insane. I get tricks are more flashy but it would suck if Rampage just became a huge slopestyle contest.
  • 5 6
 Accordingly with the PB readers, Rampage WILL become a huge slopestyle contest... Just read the comments about "semenuk got robbed". What a huge line...

 It's just too easy to quantify tricks vs gnar lines. It's too bad cause rampage is founded on riding the gnarliest line but now everyone just wants to see how many tricks a guy can do.

His run was WAY WAY smoother than anyone elses. He had the tech, speed, plenty of air time, tons of style. Etc. He was hands down the best rider out there today. I'm trying to figure out what the judges saw in Sorge's run to warrant a score that high. He went super big and had a couple tricks but I don't think he landed a single hit smooth. Not one. At best I have him in 3rd. Best run of the day ended in a broken leg. Freaking sucks. He lands that double back and you've got a 100 right there. Or close to it. Also... Zink got hosed. I think the judges got caught up in the.... well we saw a lot of that last year... etc. Didn't just judge it as a stand alone run. Few years ago I felt like he got a few position higher than he deserved and robbed TMAC of a 3rd place finish. THis year... I really think Zink got hosed. I had 3 guys much higher than they finished. The other one being Norbs.

 This comp needs to start as soon as the light is good. I'm sick of the wind ruining final runs. Dangerous for competitors and bad for viewing.

 Last I checked this was still a freeride contest, not slopestyle. Semenuk's run was nuts and he probably should've been scored higher than Aggy, but he had no 'Donger', nothing near that giant huck that Sorge and Genon hit. If anything Zink got robbed, he got a lower score than last year even though he threw in an extra drop and that flip gap too. My 2c. Also, Paul Bas' run was mental! Hope he heals quick. Same goes for Bizet.

 Agreed, Semenuks run was amazing for sure but lacked the gnar rampage was founded on. It's too bad everyone has their panties in a bunch about Aggy not letting guys use his stuff cause he pulled a freaking no hander off that huge drop! That's absolutely insane.

 They need to get some new judges people are putting their lives on the line. And seriously who cares what Sam Masekala has to say about this he's not a mountain biker.

 Masakela is the most overrated guy in the extreme aporta scene. I guess babbling in the X Games gives you some extra rep in frontera of the TV suits, and they think you can have a relevant opinion about anything, from climate change to online skating to big mountain freeride...

 I don't get how everyone used to complain about how rampage was getting too slopestyle and then when the judges answer that and not score people highly when they do majority slopestyle and not real freeride everyone gets upset.

 I think Brendog should been ranked higher....creative line, speed, style, done a perfect flip in his second run....not enough for the win, of course, but at least he should have received more points then Bearclaw

 Red Bull should take a risk and drop the judging. Just let the guys ride. Pay them all a flat rate and insurance. Get rid of the 'my line' drama. These are guys that ride hard cause they love it. They push the limit for videos all year and there's no prize money there.

 Sorge won and he deserves it ........why do people complain about others????? and bikers complaining is just sore losing ??? Zink baby baby aggy baby lacodenguy all didn't do second run they could have if wanted to just gave up the win ????remy and bingelli and berrecloth didn't chicken out ?????

 Cedric Garcia is one of the judges apparently....
  • 3 1
 I brought this up last year... they need to have live scoring and the fans scores get weighed in with the judges scores. Most every year I get confused on 1 or 2 guys scores. This year it went to the winner. Sorge did not by any means have the best run of the day. No way. And definitely not a 96 run. Huge, yes. Good. yes. Gnarly yes. But not the number 1 score. Semenuk shoulda won.

 The problem with Rampage judging is that it is all about hyping up one rider and making it into a story instead of a competition.

 Hey, it's rampage. Huge drops, sick lines and life-threatening tricks and jumps. Going down the mountain on the soft line, making slopestyle tricks IMHO don't deserve to win these kind of competition. Semenuk and Rheeder lines are so boring... just tricks on the minor obstacles. No huge drops or canyon jumps... even speed was slow. Stop crying fans.

 I totally agree. Thats why my comment is at the bottom of the below threshold thread... Just a bunch of pinkbikers that can't think for themselves...

I gave ya a +1...

 I'm with you on this one. There are plenty of vids out there, go youtube the old rampages, 2004 and earlier. I think the judging was spot on. Big mountain lines with an epic trick/drop/jump win.
