 winning run with two foot dabs, hardly clean!

 Storch's run was good. But trick for trick Testa's run was superior.
  • + 10
 Not a winning run actualy, winning run was clean.
  • + 51
 That was carson's second run, his first run was the same thing but without the slipped pedals

 His foot didn't really hit the ground it just got blown off the pedal, not like he used it either time to keep himself up. Think that's why he wasn't really marked down for it.

 The pedal slip happened on his second run. His first run was clean where he scored 91. Second run score was 89. Carson earned it.

 Yeah he killed it on his first run and that flat drop backie is just absurd. Lots of opp. tricks as well that judges seem to favor. The one irk I have is that dude getting scored so low for throwing down a sick run (450, dub tailwhip) and a backflip barspin to tailwhip even though he dabbed his foot on the last trick. Otherwise, wild contest.

 Yeah, that run was sick and should have been scored way higher.
  • + 1
 Looked almost like a flip whip to baby table the way he pulled it back around for the landing on the last jump.

 winning run without 720.

 @carson-storch - that's a wicked POV! You should enter that in the GoPro Line of the world contest.

 First comment in my head was "take note other FMB judges, slipped pedal doesn't mean -20 points". Glad to see it only cost 2 points vs his winning run.
  • + 1
 Video recap should have at least shown the (correct) winning run instead of the one with the pedal slip.
  • + 11
 Yes, he's italian and we are so proud, the first italian in history on that kind of podium... Grande Toto!

 dude in charge - "we have cable cam footage, use it in the edit"
editing dude- "ah, you can't tell what trick they're doing, the footage is bad"
dude in charge- "We paid for cable cam, we show cable cam"

as bad as the first big trick jump camera angle at les 2 alpes, sun right in the camera lens, couldn't see a thing.

 Hell I thought the cable cam was mental- it's one of my favourite things about watching the event! I agree they did use a bit too much of it and it's difficult to tell exactly what trick they're doing but I love the fact it feels like your flying with them.

 Nice course....and I'd give Storch the slight edge too...so 1st works for meSmile

 WHERE ARE THE HILLBILLY HUCKFEST VIDEOS???

 Yeah i've been waiting for them

 Congrats Carson nice job on the win!

 Testa's 360 up to the whale tale is crazy. You can grasp the risk of failure angle pretty well from the footage. Nice work.
  • + 1
 If you look at it. It's a 180

 Didnt seem like a winning run to be honest

 HA! Finally made it into an edit on Pinkbike Razz 1:28 right side of the frame. lol... This was right before the awards were given out.

 Grande Toto viva l'Italia!

 Testa Should have placed first. First place tricks weren't as big or as difficult. wtf.
  • + 1
 Fresh!

 And first place tagged the landing with blowing a foot off. A tuck to back flip isn't that hard.
  • - 3
 Carson starches run was hands down the best run of the day this is coming from a guy who does not even like his riding that much.
  • - 2
 I thought a foot dab was -20 from Crankworx; fmb judging too inconsistent.
  • + 1
 Les2alpes judges were extremely harsh and tbh are kind of ruining the sport
  • + 2
 Agreed edd!
  • + 1
 Yeah with semenuks 2nd run in les2alpes it was a great run but seriously 55 it should have been higher but not higher than rheeder
  • - 2
 1st and 2nd should have been flipped.
  • + 3
 His clean (first) run with the flat-drop flip was better than Testa's in my opinion. That said they both had such smooth flow compared to a lot of the other riders. It seems that the judges (correctly IMO) take that into consideration in the scoring. There's got to be a balance between huge tricks and fitting the trick into the overall course. If/When Carson adds a front and a 720 to his bag he's going to be a contender on the biggest stages.
