 Has anyone ever tried a double cork on a bike into a foam pit? Double cork 10 would be sick if it's possible.

 I think a dub cork 7 would be really hard, I could see a dub cork 10 but I don't think it's going to happen in a 7.

 How the hell is that even possible? i mean, regular is hard enough but still understandable, but OPPOSITE?! Thats just crazy dude.

 can someone please explain exactly what makes an "opposite" spin? does it have to do with which foot is forward at the time? it gets used like the term switch-stance in skating or snowboarding, but bikes can only go forward... how can a bystander know which way a guy usually spins, and which way is opposite? honest question don't take the piss
  • + 1
 Opposite means that your doing a trick to your un natural way. If you regularly spin right then spinning to the left would be opposite, and this makes it a lot harder.
  • + 5
 If you ride right foot forward you generally spin to the left and vice versa, so someone riding left foot forward and spinning to the left is usually an oppo trick. But some people naturally spin oppo, so a normal spin is opposite for them.

 MCsession7, you say the trough but it was quite hard to get your explanation... maybe me to stupid Smile

 Reallybigmantis if it was the bystanders first time watching a pro skater would THEY know if it was switch riding? Me thinks not. At this skill level almost everything looks natural.
  • + 1
 yeah scrips, but there is actually a clearly defined system in skating- left or right foot forward, which allows us to call frontside or backside in a spin, and there is no interpretation needed.

it seems strange that our sport started calling things regular and opposite when there is really no standard, other than knowing the rider personally? if it was a hip, spin direction would be relevant, like a downside whip, but on a straight air? i guess i'll just watch the feet. ride on
  • + 1
 If you are right foot forward like me it's much easier to spin to the left If you're left foot forward much easier to spin right. In this you see his left foot is forward and he's spinning left which means very hard Try doing a 180 and you will see what I mean. If this was skateboarding he would be doing it back side because his left foot is forward which is also harder than it would be frontside. So that is the standards really. Next time you watch a video look at there feet and the direction they spin most times it will their natural way.

 skateboarding doesn't have a standard... some guys ride goofy, so everything's the other way for them & you'd never know unless you knew the skater. Switch in biking is having your pedals the other way round to your normal riding & opposite is doing the spin/trick the other way. It's pretty simple actually, you just need to know the rider in skating & biking...

 He's also doing this oppo in the pic. I watched him ride at center of gravity today and the kids gnarly!
  • + 6
 Did he turn into a black man in mid-air?
  • + 2
 I think he did!
  • + 1
 No...its just 9 different riders hitting it at the same time
  • + 1
 LOL! It all makes so much sense now!
  • + 1
 I was wondering the same thing but i think it's just the light and maybe he crashed before and got his arm is covered in dust or something. Btw for reasons unknown to me finding black guy on pinkbike is like winning on lottery. Can somebody explain that to me ? It seems almost like MTB is one of those sports that it's dominated by one kind of ethnic group. Like with, let say running, where pretty much all pros are black, like Bolt Razz im pretty sure he can run faster on flat then i can ride Big Grin

 "At times" I miss seeing what tool negative propped everyone for no reason. What a sad little boy...

 They all look so similar!

 The f*ck, can he also pull these to his regular spinning direction?

 In the first shot of the sequence it looks like he's got the Club on his front wheel... luckily he shook it off with a 720
