5 Things We Learned from the Women's Slopestyle Session at Joyride
I was at a couple early joyrides. The course wasn’t even near the scale of todays. People were riding off logs and doing whips x ups and the occasional bar spin. The fact that these women are sending these courses today is kinda nuts. Most of us would break our face trying to hit some of these. Women’s snowboarding and skiing is a great example of where things can go if you just let them have their timeline to compete. There are girls doing batshit insane stuff in snowboard slope and pipe these days, like really high consequence rotational madness on huge senders.

Results: Whip Off - Crankworx Whistler 2023
whipoff was originally like a renegade event its actually wild to me that theres prize money going on here now. my first crankworx was a bunch of dirty mountain bikin bastards sneaking off over to crabapple and running their own goofy event, it was like my favorite thing that happened the whole week. back when hecklers rock was full of insanity during DH too lol.

Emil Johansson Takes The 'Triple Triple' & Breaks Semunuk's Record for Winningest Slopestyle Athlete
kind of a peak armchair pinkbike comment that really doesnt mean anything. kids in dirt jump circles who all participate in this sport arent ever really here making these kinds of comments, they're all at the jumps doing this stuff and celebrating emil along the way. i think semenuks just happy to be doing whatever semenuk wants to be doing on any given day. when he started exiting slopestyle he was hugely advocating for emil (i think it was one of the backwoods jam interviews) saying that kid is the future. even semenuks riding in a comp was a lot more stale than what he'd prefer to be throwing down in video parts, its a competition you're going to throw what scores well and try to win it. any jam type video ive seen of emil on socials looks like hes throwing down a different variety of stuff and having a more "creative" time flowing through courses. cant knock on him for doing what he needs to do to be at the top, the sport's evolved quite a bit since semenuk and brett were going head to head, and whether we enjoy it or not the stuff thats winning is celebrated among the athletes who are all throwing down in this sport. may not make sense or be as entertaining to us, but the people who are jumping around on slopestyle seem to appreciate it.

Video: Winning Run from the Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle 2023
@yoimaninja: but how is doing twisters and cashrolls and cork 7's not spin to win? to me this is much more akin to the triple-corks that took over snowboarding in the last decade than emils bag is. no one else does the tricks in emils bag, while several riders do twisters and cashrolls and cork 7's now. if anything when someone does combos on rail features or air tricks in snowboard slopestyle, it's not scored as high as the bigger aerial tricks but people prefer seeing it on online discussions because they're steezier. my point being is this feels like backwards stance: emil's stuff IS the debatably steezier of the mix when it comes to tricks, whereas godziek and rogatkin are more akin to the "spin to win" "huck to win" that we see in snowboard slopestyle that people complain about online

@ciechan: i mean thats just standard dirt jumping. this same discussion is had with snowboard and ski slopestyle. turns out riders who like to compete and take part in the sport dont really indulge themselves in this sentiment, this isnt a jam session event, its a competition its where sponsorship money is and its how top athletes make a career for themselves. wanting slow rotations and all that, thats not a discussion that hasnt been had a million times before but theres really no way to judge that. slopestyle mountainbiking has always been about getting tricks in on features since the very beginning, people just werent as good at it back then as they are now. of course the sports evolved but its going a direction that riders are pushing it, not a direction that commenters think it should go. this is the same flavor different day of the discussions that happen at redbull rampage every year.

why is it that when double down whips and bar tails and other combos are used people in here feel like they need to wax poetic about how they dont like oppo tricks, but when cash rolls and cork 7's are used in literally every contest now no one bats an eye ? no handed twisters or tailwhip cashrolls just look like some nitro circus trick personally i dont care much for those. watching emil and fedko ride is fun cause they're being precision surgeons with their riding and making it look easy, not like they're trying to win a best trick contest. dirt jump communities seem to be where the trick culture stems from, whereas godzeik/rogatkin appear to have brought over some nitro circus caliber stuff from bmx. the folks in dirtjump circles dont seem to have issue with scoring, yet folks on pinkbike who ride enduro bikes have a lot to say about it while contributing nothing to this sect of the sport.
