Video: Mick Hannah Searches For The Fastest Rampage Line
@deco1: I dont disagree with the trick part of what you said one bit. Yes it has become a freestyle event. And, that's fine if that's what it is....I was just making the point that it is still sold as Big Mountain *Freeride* not Big Mountain *Freestyle*. I know I'm probably gonna get flamed to death for saying that, because, honestly there is a lot of grey area in between the two and which is freeride and which is freestyle???? You'd probably get 100 different answers from 100 different people. However, where I disagree with you is that zink/strait and semenuk/rheeder ride the same stuff. Ask anyone in this scene and they will tell you, year in and year out zink and strait have the steepest, most technical, most gnarly and most high consequence line available. Now, not do discredit the freestyle guys one bit because they're riding huge shi+ and throwing massive tricks, and their lines are steep and gnarly.....but, they're buffed out and *bike parked* as can be. Again, I'm not downgrading those guys one bit because what they do is incredible. However, I think it boils down to an identity crisis where freestyle guys are winning a big mountain event. If its freestyle then RedBull just needs to call a spade a spade and say its freestyle. But if they're gonna call it big mountain then the true big mountain guys deserve better judging for what they throw down. To me theres still a difference, and I'm sure theres plenty that agree and plenty that disagree.

For me the biggest gripe is this: What are we judging these guys on? Is it slopestyle or is it Big Mountain Freeride, because since Rampage day 1 it was all about the biggest gnarliest line. It definitely has evolved into something else. However, it would be somewhat asinine to expect an event like this to not evolve when the best in the world are giving it everything they've got. problem is that guys like Zink, Strait and Aggy huck themselves down the gnarliest, most high consequence lines there are and they don't get the points a lot of people think they deserve. No disrespect to SikMik but that run is bottom 1/4 every year now. Look at it another way. . . .T-Mac rides super gnarly lines super fast, and he struggles to break the top 5. I personally don't hate Semenuks runs, I think they're super creative and extremely well executed (in true semenuk robot fashion) but I definitely do not think they're the best *Rampage* runs. . . If that makes any sense. For me personally and for a lot of fans Zink and Stait put down the biggest, gnarliest and most Rampage worthy lines year in and year out.

I use the PB Swiss driver and T-handle driver religiously. Granted, drivers and bits aren’t ideal for every scenario, but I’d say 95% of the time they work so incredibly well. The magnet is super strong and the bits never come loose (bonus of not dropping hardware is a plus). I like them so much better than regular T-handles or triple keys. They are pretty pricy though.

Nerding Out: Riders with the Most Wins at Different Venues & More World Cup DH Venue Stats
So if I'm reading the graph right it shows that MSA has had a different winner every year for 20 strait years??? Is that correct? Did I misinterpret something? If that's true that's wild.
