Fest Series - Aggy's Reunion

by Fest Series  
The first stop of the FEST series, Aggy's reunion is over. It has been a great week of shredding with a big and really dialled crew of riders coming from all over the world. The vibe of the event was very different from any other contest, It felt like a big jam session that would go on every day of the week, not only in the main jump line that Aggy and Brad Stuart had built, but in all the trails and spots that we have been riding during the past week.

The session on the main jumps lasted 2 days. We had really lucky conditions since wind and rain didn't affect us too much. The event had to be ran one day before it was scheduled because bad weather was rolling through on the weekend.

 This is the best thing to happen to mountain biking after rampage. This is so much more fun to watch and a DJ contest in the middle of a european countries main street.

 I would like to have a live stream. I understand, that this is a new event and the footage would´t be as good as red bulls UCI and FMB streams, but I would still watch it. One camera at each jump or a drone and there we go. I think there are a lot of sponsors out there that would make the live stream possible.

 i was there watching when matt attempted the big monster jump for the first time i think he thought more sped was better then not enough because he barely held onto the landing and almost landed to flat on that huge sender. and to let everyone know that picture of maaken with graham watching is the setup jump to the big sender at the end you needed a lot of speed to make it to the transition

 Andreu lacondeguy has such a moto style that suits this kind of tracks so well, and judges aren't the whores of some riders so the scores are fair

 Biggest overshoot -> Matt Hunter Big Grin jumps are not big enough Big Grin

 How good would it have been if they planned a quick Fest Series stop by Dan Athertons quarry line, I'm sure he'd be up for reshaping a few take offs on the big line to be more trick-able....
