 That's how you spend $1k. Money goes straight to the riders and I'd watch another video like that any time.

Well done Pinkbike.

 So the park is open. And here we all sit.
  • + 5
 @bizutch: opens tomorrow!
  • + 28
 @leon-forfar: and I'll still be right here.
  • + 4
 @bizutch: someone needs to fill up the comment section, yo! Big Grin
...I'll be here as well

 Hopefully a late season weekend this year for me.

 That was sick! Like how they introduced Nico towards the end and I would have bet a lot he would win. Never thought Eddie would push him within inches , he really is a beast of all trades. Pretty sure Nick could go 5 feet past that if only camera and crew.

 @dobermon: yup

 Just dicking around on bikes doing random stuff is always a good time!
  • + 11
 Huh, don't remember getting my invitation. Must have went to my spam folder.
  • + 46
 I enjoyed that.

 My picks to win were Remy and Nico. I didn't expect any of the World Cup guys to come close but Masters really sent it. Props to Nico for going all-in and landing nose first tho, ballsy move.

 Had he not nosed in - he would have picked up another two feet or so.
  • + 20
 @neimbc: his rear tire would have landed first that would mean and last time i checked my rear tire was close to a meter behind my front tire
  • + 4
 @endurogan: I thought if he had picked it up to come in leveled off, he might have got more distance on the front one, not the rear. I didn't know it was measured from where the rear touched. I thought it was which ever tire came down first. Sorry, my mistake.
  • + 2
 @neimbc: I'm pretty sure it is whichever tire lands farther back, which is why nosing in is the best strategy.
  • + 13
 @millsr4: OK, Thanks. I am taking a beating here!
  • + 28
 Rad! It wouldn’t be too hard for WBP to shape an ideal jump/landing to make the long jump an official crankworx event. This is more entertaining to me as pump track racing or speed and style.
  • + 47
 The best part about this is that it’s unofficially official. Just dudes in the woods throwing down.
  • + 6
 @jjalessi: Yeah... that's a great point. Even still, it'd make for a fun main even too.
  • + 1
 @jjalessi: I agree I thought this was great. And we all know you need to be named Rennie to hold the official long jump record; and not of the Nathan variety unfortunately. I think this Pinkbike version is way better.

 Man I think the thing that makes this video cool is the amount of fun and laughing with everyone. That's the kind of riding I like
  • + 20
 Some heavy hitters right there. Glad that was filmed. Nico is the man
  • + 4
 I’d love to Andrew Lacondeguy hit it.
  • + 7
 @bikebike69: in a Superman

 @bikebike69: Silva would destroy.
  • + 17
 That made me smile!

 Nico’s laugh is infectious...
  • + 13
 For sure these boys got smashed that night
  • + 6
 Sounds like they were be gonna be getting their vitamins more than anything, rock and roll!
  • + 12
 Couldn't have gone to a more deserving, nicer guy.
  • + 10
 Really enjoyed that, smiled all the way through.
  • + 7
 This is the moment I learned I was a punter when I recognized Paul but not a single Pro in the vid.
  • + 14
 That just means you're uninformed.
  • + 4
 I was like "hang on a minute, I recognise that voice.."

 Who hasn't boosted a long jump comp at some time, flying over people in the school yard as a dirty little kid was the start of it for many. This looked fun and i gotta say i had my money on Nico even though they are all guns.
  • + 7
 Damn Nico looks so happy, his infectiuos winning smile... got to me.
  • + 5
 That was awesome. Also holy shit was Nico getting so ridiculous air.

 Just shows you how strong bikes are now, as this is quite a flat /harsh landing on 50 feet plus jump!
  • + 2
 We need Théo Erlangsen in the next one. Lad sends it
  • + 2

 I'd a been in the running with my special technique... PinkBike forgot to let me know they were going to have a contest...
  • + 1
 You keep saying things like that don't you, but what's the betting you can't jump at all...?
  • + 1
 Looks like a pretty funny contest!

 Shhhh.... that's the only reason I can afford to go to Whistler a couple times a summer.
  • + 1
 shhh...gotta keep the secrets of the Canadian pesos from the masses.

 @Kc9123: Otherwise we may have to build a wall to keep out the Americans ;-)
  • + 7
 @fabwizard: Can you please do it whilst I’m up there?
  • + 1
 @Rucker10: My neighbour is building a new fence for his yard, should i forward the picture so you can send to your boss when you tell him "Canada built a wall, sorry wont be at work on Monday?"
  • + 2
 @fabwizard: That would be downright thoughtful of you. But for real though, when can we start applying for refugee status?
  • + 1
 Yeah Nico!

 Great shiiid

 I hope homeboy Vink bought beers that night for his bros.

 Sounds like they are aging gracefully and drinking smoothies in place of beer
