Video: Nicholi Rogatkin Goes Full Enduro in Finale Ligure - GoPro Track Down S1 EP5

Sep 3, 2019
by GoPro  

Finale is known as the iconic final stop of the EWS season, but we thought it'd be fun to bring a slopestyle legend to check it out. For the final episode of GoPro Track Down, Scotty Laughland heads to Finale Ligure to meet up with Nicholi Rogatkin. Can the slopestyle shredder go full enduro and keep up with Scotty?

Follow along with GoPro athlete and all-around bloody good chap, Scotty Laughland, as he explores trails, trail networks, and the local scene in our new five-part series: Track Down. Where will his GoPro travel with him this season? Europe. Did you catch the previous episodes? Check out all the previous episodes here.

 for someone who is a freestyle champ, he has some awkward style off these little jumps. scotty lays down a nice scrub/whip while nicolai looks like me trying to throw tabes

 Hahaha. He probably got a modern long low slack trail bike and is just lost trying to figure it out

 awkward in general tbh...I know this guy has had some mega accomplishments, but his vibe has never fit the mtb scene, at least IMO.

 I bet you anything he hasn't ridden a trail bike in months, and probably not a natural trail in a bit either. Even the best aren't immune to having to get a feel for a bike they never ride on terrain they haven't been riding.

 @nvranka: He has wicked skills on multiple types of bikes. Maybe his vibe doesn't fit, but I'm sure if you gave him two weeks to ride that trail bike on trails, he'd be shredding our faces off.

 @trialsracer: i'm fairly confident that he didn't just volunteer to go ride one of the gnarliest enduro courses on the circuit without at least some moderate trail time beforehand. i'll knock off some points for the wet ride, but as far as being comfortable on a trail bike, no.

 Wouldn't it be so great if there was some international trail difficulty rating with a degree of accuracy!? In the South of the UK a blue trail is a gentle roller without jumps. What they're riding would be borderline red. But even just in my neck of the woods it varies from one trail centre to another, there's just so much subjectivity being applied to ratings.

Which multiple types of bikes does he have “wicked” skills on? Clearly this isn’t one of them.

 These guys were smart to sync up with Ride Finale and Louise. Such an awesome guide, she knows every inch of the trails and you end up riding so much more than you'd be able to on your own. Miss this place already.

 Engineer is awesome. Hard to choose a favourite trail there, sooo many good ones. I wonder if anyone ever goes to Finale without riding Rollercoaster?
