 sooo huugeeee! wish he would of got this clicked like this in his 3rd run
  • + 45
 And me I recon he could of knocked Semenuk off top spot with his 3rd run, unfortunately he just went too high on this hip, it was truly gutting, this kid is amazing!, he'll defo win this in the future
  • + 4
 He dumped on semenuk, if him and zink had been able to finish their runs we would have seen a very different result!
  • + 54
 It's a bird... No, It's a plane... No, IT'S ANTHONY MESSERE BOOSTING @ REDBULL JOYRIDE!
  • + 4
 BOOST!
  • + 15
 Just watched the video. When he did that first boost; my jaw literally almost unhinged.
  • + 8
 He was pretty much boosting twice as high as everyone else, pretty sick to see it in person
  • + 16
 It would of been a great run if he held it together, but who knows what Semenuk had up his sleeve for his final run. Would of been great to see him have to push it though.

 BOOOOST!!

 " i chose my own shot as POD, i hope you don't mind too much" well i don't think there's much we could do anyway Wink
  • + 1
 Bottom right hand corner, is... is that a flash i see?
  • + 15
 This just had to be POD! This should be shown in schools during history lessons.
  • + 4
 aflo661, thats dust from the meeeeegaaaaaaa booooooooost.

 Click on the XLarge pic and look at the guys in the background, thats what i looked like when i watched it on the livestream Big Grin
  • + 6
 He deffo farted to get that high
  • + 2
 Thank you ian for picking your own pic as pod, it's very well deserved. awesome photo and HUUUGE air, especially for a 15 year old
  • + 12
 Hes our Brett Banasiewicz!
  • + 1
 He seems to be to high for the camera man! Big Grin crazy shit!
  • + 3
 he is way higher then that helicopter in the background!
  • + 1
 this is hoffman/robinson/kagy BIG. it's like he dropped outta the heli.
  • + 3
 mnorris, no this was the first run, the one he landed. The other one may have even been a tiny bit higher....
  • + 3
 Crankworks should move to the XGames style format, where for final runs, the first place rider and the second place riders swap, so that the first place guy has to do his best run because second place could still beat him. that way the last run of the comp is actually exciting
  • + 1
 This photo pretty much defines the word of "BOOST" sooo sickkk!
  • + 8
 girls should be running after this kid instead of Justin Bieber.. lol
  • + 1
 when i saw him at the airdome i thought he boosting high, that was shit compared to this
  • + 1
 This should be Pod for two days, so sick.
  • + 2
 look at the camera man. Anthony is out of his angle!!!!
  • + 1
 Bunny hop?
  • + 16
 Btw someone in whistler should take a measuring tape to see see how high that SRAM sign is
  • + 4
 the Sram sign is set 20 feet above the top of the landing if i remmeber correctly......... Which means hes going fkn huge!!!
  • + 16
 I wouldn't even be upset if this stayed POD all week
  • + 8
 i feel bad...everyones hating on semenuk. he did an absolutly fantastic run and tricked everything and he did have one more run after zink and messere too....messere did some of the craziest stuff ive seen but semenuk won for a reason
  • + 1
 Ya I agree just because Semenuk makes everything look easy doesn't mean it wasn't an amazing run.
  • + 12
 He has drunk a lot of Redbull before doing that !
  • + 14
 spelled piss wrong :/
  • + 2
 Hahaha i love you kubetata lol your comment made my day
  • + 11
 15 years old and 30 feet high! Steeze!
  • + 9
 LOL In Polish language the word SRAM means something like "I take a shit". Not joking
  • + 11
 I quit biking.
  • + 8
 you're a stupid.
  • + 4
 They definitely need to have height meters on the side of the courses like x-games half pipe
  • + 4
 Even the camera man looks like he is having trouble getting him in the frame ..... so huge!
  • + 6
 Thats what she said. ^
  • + 5
 serious, how high is THAT!
  • + 1
 Excelent shot! It is funny the expressions of the three guys behind the camera man, like saying "What the f...!" and then the video-camera man kind of strugling to focus into such a huge jump. I wonder if he got any of it!
  • + 3
 That kid stepped up the level of (slopestyle/freeride whatever the hell you want to call it) this week. By about 5 notches.
  • + 4
 He actually just fell out of that helicopter and is about to land.
  • + 2
 I remember the time when he crashed doing this... my video cut out when he was at his peak and I thought to myself, there is no way he is landing that. haha
  • + 2
 cool shot..... on this one, l would like to see more of the ramp so we can get better scale on the whole set up.
  • + 4
 Yep desktop background
  • + 2
 Ah, thats better. This is amazing! Don't pick too many of you own shots Ian. It will look like a conflict of interests. Wink
  • + 3
 i bet sram is pretty stoked on this pic lol
  • + 2
 camera man had his camera set to the other riders airs didnt know this kid was going to blast!!!!
  • + 1
 You've captured an absolutely amazing moment, well done. Are each one of those notches in the tree set around 5 foot increments?
