 whats wrong with that d1rtjumper? all these rampage picks have been crazy

 I think RBR ones are good but Crankworx Slope Style ones are just too repetitive.

 Romaniak has balls and would be obviously the man to beat if he wasn't out of rampage !
  • + 1
 agreed^^ he doesnt throw down tricks, but he goes huge! probably my favorite freerider, cos he shreds the downhill aswell as launch the gaps.
  • + 1
 looks like the bar tok out some of the compression

 no balls that clank

 hey guys looking for some feedback on my photography, cheack it out at www.facebook.com/Levi.photography.video

 Never consider the amplitude of H2o to be correct, as it varies from place to place resulting in many forms of radioactive beavers and otters and such.
  • + 1
 oh yeah?

 Balls were ok, knee not so much. Old injury though, he'll heal up quick. So bummed to see him him crash on this, came up about a foot short...
  • + 3
 hope he's o.k.

 he didnt come a foot short, hes right where he needs to be, he just landed funny
  • + 2
 he so nearly had this gap!! ahh he wood hav smashed everyone if he hadnt crashed Frown
  • + 2
 They have the capability to build the world's first bionic man. Romo will be that man; better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.
  • + 1
 looks to me he just needed a little more speed into it and a little higher on the transition and he would have had it
  • + 8
 @bikebuster I'm so glad you know so much about what happened, did you happen to see something that the rest of us here didn't? Romo came up about a foot short, cased hard, slammed his chest into the bars winding himself, blew his knee and broke his bike, all in the fraction of a second before the landing frame of this sequence. Then he bounced strait into the rest of the landing where his front wheel hit soft dirt sending him topside over the bars into the ground. Which he eventually walked away from with help from two medics. I didn't see you anywhere there?
  • + 6
 Might have got a little greedy in qualies for sure! Bit I did not want to do one of the pre built features. Had to bring something to the coarse and make it original and my own. Gee did hit the line but with a different approach and more mellow air.
  • + 5
 Note this as well. Stund crew rider James doerfling went for my line in finals, got to the landing but ripped forks off upon landing. Props James for being the only other rider to go for it.
  • + 1
 when I saw the first couple photos of that line I praised the commitment and gnarliness of it, but the angle of the lip to the tranny just looked to difficult/impossible to ride out of. Full credit to Romo for giving it a go though, he was damn close to pulling it off!
  • + 1
 From the photo/video I think this is a poor line choice. It's more important to ride clean than to puch the limits in qualifying. This line looks really tough, Romo deserves props for hitting it, but I wonder if he'd have been better served riding a more sensible line (snensible in rampage terms) and qualifying?

 Pretty much my favorite line/move so far.

 sick picture, just wondering do you have a program that automatically edits all the pictures together in a sequence? if not how do you do it manually? and what program u use? Thanks alot and this picture is amazing!
  • + 4
 photoshop, this one took about an hour to do well. Easy to do for the web but they need to look good full size as a magazine spread so they take a little longer...
  • + 1
 oh ok cool, know a video that explains how to do it? i have photoshop cs4
  • + 6
 just search online for a tutorial on photoshop sequences. There'a a basic one on PB right now it's here www.pinkbike.com/forum/listcomments/?threadid=1200&pagenum=1 and I'll be doing a tutorial on it this winter...

 thats a story to tell his kids later.................oh wait?
  • + 1
 That is a frieken Amazing picture and jump... Too bad he didnt land it. Hope he feels better soon.

 This is a GREAT pod. The competition was GREAT. And todays VOD is... gone. Wtf?!
  • + 2
 I like the fact that everyone are looking at the "first" Romo. Wink
  • + 9
 actually everyone is looking at the middle romo, in the middle of the gap, that's the frame I took the background from...
  • + 5
 haha. told...
  • + 1
 Gee got it spot on in competition, but his run didn't deserve second more than the claw.
  • + 2
 gee took a different line into this. wasn't the same. FYI
  • + 1
 Yeah Gee built a better take off, but this was really the only special thing in his run, not enough for second IMO.
  • + 1
 I think you're missing that part that Gee rode probably 10 mph faster down the entire course than anyone else, and still pulled a huge move and rode out of it. Fluidity and speed count for a lot in this event...
  • + 1
 Yeah he did have a sick run, anyway man that's for another place, wicked photo!
  • + 2
 i can`t wait to watch the red bull rampage 2010!!
great POD!!
  • + 1
 is this multiple frames from a vid? ro how do you take photos like this with a digi slr?
  • + 1
 multiburst + stitched together
  • + 1
 in his interveiw he states the fact that he bottomed front before back nd thats why. but agreed gutted to see him kill it :/
  • + 1
 2 bad Romo didn't qualified_ thats sick transition, I guess thats what happens when u trying sick lines in the qualifiers
  • - 2
 Gee is a line stealer and did NOT deserve anything better then a 3rd i think he should been stuck in 4th..panzy not even taking a second run. damn britian. give ur number two plate too the claw who DESERVES it for insanity and strength for holdin on
  • + 1
 love the guy in the front of the pictures sweaty bag marks on his back, oh and romy sending it.
  • + 1
 The 6 guys at the back are gonna be fucked like the 3 cunts infront of them have crashed, must have been nasty
  • + 1
 and think of this.....Gee Atherton was pictured looking at that same line later in the day...dammmnnn if Gee makes it...
  • + 2
 Gee made it, destroyed his wheel, Tyler McCaul made it, wrecked his hand after landing ok. Both going off a line slightly to viewers left of Romo's take off point....
  • + 1
 Sorry man...didn't see this comment yesterday...but WOW...i was pump for Gee throwing it...how different (in lenght) is Romo's take off from what Gee and TMC did?...on the webcast and the pictures, maybe there are 1-3feet difference...

Any how...stoke on the rampage this year...guess you guys had a blast...2012 here I go!!...hope to meet you there Ian!!! I'll bring the imperiales.... Smile

 He was going down either way. He hooked up pretty hard.

 see my response to a comment above. He case pretty good and was totally done, bike broken, Romo broken for the last 3 frames of this sequence. Even if he hadn't washed his tire he still wouldn't have been able to ride his bike or even stand up after the case...
