that run would have been legendary.. still is in my opinion.

If Semenuk got a 96 or what have you, I don't dare think what Martins run would have earned!

I remember hearing that even if Soderstrom had finished his run the judges wouldn't have scored it higher than Semenuk.

Opposite tricks is why Brandon won. Way more difficult then most people can understand.
(Sep 22, 2013 at 3:15)
Not trying to diss Brandon. But he oppos just as much as he regulars. So is it still oppo any more?
(Sep 22, 2013 at 5:11)
oppo is a whole new skill set. so as long as no one else is doing oppo whips and bars it will continue to score high. and i think there may be more people in the world who can do a regular triple whip than an oppo double whip if that gives an idea of difficulty?

seanstdenis, people flipwhip and frontflip everyday, it still hard though.
(Sep 22, 2013 at 8:41)
seanstdenis- It's still opposite to how he spins naturally so, yes.
This is really funny to see how confused a lot of MTBers seem to be with the concept of opposite/unnatural tricks whereas in other sports like skiing and snowboarding, it's been a standard in comps/filming for well over a decade now, haha.

The introduction of oppo stuff in mtb definitely is worthy of higher points, that stuff is ridiculous. However, when it comes to how entertaining it is, I would much rather see martin's lazy nacs or suuuuper dumped 3's any day. But when it comes to scores, based on sheer techiness, I think Brandon probably still would have won.

Brandon still would have won...

The oppos whips may be technically harder but you have to bare in mind that riders are awarded points for progressive tricks that push the sport. The simple fact that a triple whip is'nt beening done by any other riders is bound to give Martin big points. As a second note I would have wanted to see Soderstrom on top just to mix things up and fire up the competition in the FMB. Just look at how exciting the DH world cup has been over the last two races with Gee and Smith!

Haha if Soderstrom has not gotten injured, I would think he would have it in the bag over Pilgrim at Rampage.
(Sep 22, 2013 at 13:55)
radrob, no one else is doing OPPO double whips either, oppo trucks on drops and other than pilgrim, flat flipping drops. that is also progressing the sport. everything oppo feeels super awkward. the fact that semenuk can do more or less all of his tricks oppo and make it look normal goes to show how ahead of the game he is and how much work he puts into riding.
(Sep 22, 2013 at 19:46)
Semenuk may have done a ton of oppo tricks, but Martin b-spinned out of the wall ride, triple whipped, 360ed the small drop to hip(may have been oppo I forget.) And 3 doublewhip at the end. In my opinion that is better then semenuks oppos. Although I'm not say Semenuks run was bad, It was crazy!

Get well soon Martin, you truly are a champion, one of the sleekest riders in the mix...
(Aug 18, 2013 at 6:46)
Make that one POD for the real champion !
(Aug 17, 2013 at 23:00)
POD at some point in the near future, has to be!!
(Sep 22, 2013 at 6:48)
Its like riding switch in skateboard now, its hard to tell whats opposite anymore but if u slam down hammer tricks like sodey did then u deserve to win especially if everything is clean
(Sep 22, 2013 at 11:44)
Damn, I can't add this one to my fav or make it my feature because it already is! Poor Martin finally figured out how to keep his saggy ass jeans out of his rear tire and then broke his leg on his most amazing run ever. Always next year...
(Aug 18, 2013 at 12:04)
POD from the photo essay, for me - epic. Such a shame he crashed, that run was all-time. Props, Martin.
(Sep 22, 2013 at 15:16)

(Sep 22, 2013 at 7:31)
The first meeting, please master pointing
(Sep 22, 2013 at 0:19)
it is my wallpaper :> and Semenuk will always be a epic
(Sep 22, 2013 at 8:10)
Hey Buddy, your going the wrong way!
(Sep 22, 2013 at 8:37)
Not a big fan of posting crashes .. He still should have won by his 1st run
(Aug 19, 2013 at 1:45)
This would have been the winning run! healing vibes for Martin
