Must Watch: Brandon Semenuk Rides Unique Slopestyle Features in ‘Realm’
@leon-forfar: Racerun should have been competition run. And this is where we agree to disagree. You believe the level is so low that Semenuk can come out of retirmenet and smack Fedko, Lemoine and Rogatkin around, no matter that he hasn't been on such a course for quite a few years (slopestyle careers are short to begin with). I don't believe he can pick up his bike and become a force as easy as you think. He would need at least a year hard training to get back to that level again. It's a very hard sport... you see how hard the riders work to get aback again. Talent is one thing, but the hours need to be made on those huge jumps.. Can Brandon rebuild that? Probably*, but even he needs time. Edits and smaller jumps certainly show he's a great rider, but it's not a competition run at Crankworx. * Probably? Yeah, we have seen great athletes return and fizzle. We also have seen magnificent returns.... Nothing is certain.

Must Watch: Brandon Semenuk Rides Unique Slopestyle Features in ‘Realm’
@leon-forfar: Perhaps, but do not forget that we are looking at an edit. A racerun is different (with very different speed and heigth of jumps). He's crazy experienced for sure, but stating he will cruise to 2nd if you just give hiim a run is a tall order even for Brandon. Doesn't diminish him one bit.

Video: The Elite Men's DH World Champ Explains His Winning Run
As he pinged out of the last rock section you can see him buckle forward on impact and almost losing it, which explains why he was scared about the big jump seconds away Also, the commentary of Rob and Eliot when they see the rerun and realize how ridiculously fast and wild Minnaar is, is fantastic. Memorable indeed!

Video: Fabio Wibmer Breaks Down the Biggest Crash of his Career
@opignonlibre: correct, for example the stunt where he let his bike ride under a pole and tried to jump over it with his body caused a massive slam. He most certainly had more than one concussions.

A shattered bone in your foot is pretty nast considering the complexity of those structures. Also consider his career, it's actually a potentially career changing injury.

Video: Fabio Wibmer Breaks Down the Biggest Crash of his Career
I don't think this is a contest about who is the most manly and manages to break as much bones as possible. My biggest crash was on a roadbike, abandoned the race, road rash bandaged for a week. A pro would just shrug, dust off and finish the race. Still I did not find it a fun crash, nor do I find myself in anyway a coward that I abandoned and waited till my bandages came off before I went racing again.

And then she produces the usual glorified clip? Somewhere the plot went out of the window.

Final Results from the Les Gets DH World Cup 2021
I slammed my laptop close when I saw Reece midair fly off that ramp. Took me a few seconds to get my breathing under control, and open my laptop again just to see him mount again... Jeez... that was gruesome.

Gee Atherton Airlifted to Hospital After a Crash While Filming
@Reagh: It''s true... if every experiment confirms that the earth is round it's clear proof of some massive conspiracy! Sure, the experiments completely destroy the notion the earth is flat, but jt's that deep! Evey physics student in the world is immeduately taken away and chipped by Disney. Indeed, it's not well known, that Newton actually got a fat check from Disney back in the days (they will never tell us about that the timetravel engine made by Gearloose is actually real).
