 This e-bike stuff is getting out of control.

 And why do they put petrol engines on e-bikes?

 @bashhard: To market them as Hybrids, clearly.

 Interestingly the "ebike" that Josh Hill is on isnt even produced anymore.

 Colby by miles.... just like that first hit.

 Seriously, that was insane.

 I feel like Raha embodies what this competition is about. Doing things that there isn't already a platform to be judged on.

 All of them had amazing pieces, but Colby's was just nuts. Plus he jumped out of the parking lot for city hall so...

 Came here to see this comment.......glad to see it, that dude wins or it’s rigged 100%

 100% agree. It reminds me the spirit of the first Crusty videos

 Did he have a helicopter to film a helicopter filming him?

 I hope that Vicki Golden makes a few dudes reconsider their life choices. :-]

 apparently it is in no way affecting Corey Creed's life choices

 I like to think MTB is pretty gnarly, but these videos prove otherwise
  • 17 1
 Strong or Raha...the others were more filler and not enough killer
  • 1 0
 You didn't think Strong's had too much filler?

I love these real contests and it is interesting how from one sport to the next what the allowable amount of filler is.

 @adrennan: guess I felt like he was able to combine the 2 better than the others...

 E-bikes lost their cranks??

 Trials and singletrack riding beats stunts for this guy. Yeah Cody Webb
  • 15 7
 This guys are crazy but the girl is just out of this world!!!!!
  • 17 13
 Just cause she's a girl? The front flip no-hander was pretty wild, but other than that she didn't exactly do anything that wasn't being done in 2006.....Now, the fact that it is a girl riding a moto like that is out of this world.
  • 7 2
 @mildsauce91: To be fair the guys aren't doing all that much that wasn't done in 2006 either. First front flips were done almost 10 years ago, and Pastrana landed the first double backflip in 2006. There just isn't the same level of progression in Moto tricks as there is in other sports, and for good reason really.
  • 5 0
 @sino428: Oh totally. I don't know how they could progress that much more honestly, as you mentioned. Pastrana just completely ate up the sport, and I wouldn't wish it any other way. Such a good dude.
  • 4 0
 @mildsauce91: Yea its just limited by what it is. There is only so many things you can do with a 300lb dirtbike in the air. I mean you can't really spin it, you can't spin the bars or do tailwhips, etc. Its basically flips and variations of flips. And as we saw when Josh Sheehan did the triple backflip the extra height needed to go beyond the current crop of tricks and start adding more flips is basically just obscene.
  • 4 0
 @sino428: bar spin, kinda...I'll give it to him...

Agree, only so much can be done, and it's pretty much been done and limits been pushed to max....
  • 2 0
 @RadBartTaylor: completely forgot about that one. Nothing like your bike falling apart while attempting a bar spin flip.
  • 4 0
 They are all rad, Raha is that old school Crusty style that love but the stuff that Josh Hill is doing, particularly when you consider the hard concrete, the raw terrain that isn't manicured, and the fact that he basically tossed his Supercross racing career away doing a backflip and breaking his pelvis yet here he is in his 30s sending it in raw terrain, is particularly impressive. Also, Hill is moving Pro race speed where as lots of the other FMX guys, are definitely not racers.
  • 3 0
 wow ...seriously. If Raha is participating he is always a contender. Years past he was a walk to win. This year he is still a contender and the concept of "going big" never does that dude justice. Need a new term. That being said, the story is important part as well as the riding. Strong was next level from all angles, film maker, story, riding.. and is my top pick hands down. Golden was my next pick. Story, riding, film/style was terrific. All of them are nutters though. Ooze skill, style and crazy.

 I am not sure if Creed got the memo that it is a moto competition
  • 5 0
 Holy moly, did not realize street riding on a full-size moto was a thing. The level of moto riding is just insane now. Crazy skills and GIANT sends.

 go back and watch raha's entries from the last couple years

 Coby Raha's airtime doesn't seem possible
  • 3 1
 Those were all pretty nutty. Colby Raha stood out to me as letting the riding speak for itself, and then seeing Vicki doing those tricks was pretty rad. I've always felt a bit confused that women are the best gymnasts and dancers in the world but that they aren't represented more in freestyle action sports. I would think given their general grace and flexibility, we'd get some way sicker moto or slopestyle tricks out of the ladies than most guys could pull off.

 Women aren't really the best gymnasts in the world. They are just the most famous as they get more attention at the Olympics. Watch mens gymnastics and they are basically doing everything the women are doing and more. There is a reason that the men complete in 6 events and the women in 4, with only two overlapping between the two.
  • 2 1
 @sino428: Umm, are you aware of the existence of Simone Biles?!
  • 3 0
 @bcoleman3: Yes she is awesome, and in some cases like the floor exercise very close to what men can do, that does not make women the best gymnasts as the original poster suggested. The huge floor move that she does (triple double) that no other women has ever done, has been done by a few mens gymnasts in the past. Biles may be the best womens gymnast ever, as in shes dominant against women, but if we are just comparing overall physical ability mens gymnasts would blow away women overall at the highest levels. And this is pretty standard across almost any sports. The best men's at any sport are better than the best women. I'm not sure of any sports where this is not that case.

 With more airplanes and pyrotech my trackstand practice videos would be a whole lot cooler too.

 Some Crusty vibes from Raha, the dunes segment is awesome.

 his whole segment really.

 Colby for the win for sure and I think I might not brag as much about my 15 foot gaps I hit on a mountain bike.

 How do we not have this for mtb? Maybe Pb or redbull should host a freeride video comp to make up for Rampage this year?

 Going to go ride my mtb after work, hit some jumps and pretend im doing 160ft gaps .... over 6 ft gaps lol

 I need a moto!!
  • 1 0
 Every time I ride mine I get off thinking these things are insane. Most of the time on my mtb I feel like I'm not going to die, the moto requires asking the question frequently to make sure I don't do something crazy. Every time I have huge smile on my face.

 Colby is a madman. You could have a plane to fly around and ride or you could just fly around while riding.
