Rampage Judge Darren Berrecloth Speaks Out On 2023 Event
@brianpark: which maybe brings us to another elephant in the room... when is it time for the old guard to step aside and let the young talent in? As much as I love to watch Semenuk and Rheeder, I was pleased they weren't there in a way. They deserve respect for passing the torch. There's so much talent out there. Yeah, Brendog got robbed, but I'm actually really happy to see Zink win, especially if it means he can let go now. Love Strait too but maybe it's time. Sorghe - come on dude, do you really need more trophies?

Rampage Judge Darren Berrecloth Speaks Out On 2023 Event
@PauRexs: same for Godziek - he was tricking absolutely everything up top. So he must have been in for a 110 at least.

Rampage Judge Darren Berrecloth Speaks Out On 2023 Event
@dunnem8: exactly. They seem to choose when a trick matters as it suits them. We get told that lines matter but then apparently it was the Sui that was the key in Brendog's case... when he 'nibbled' over that canyon. I don't mean to downplay Zink's drop, it was awesome, but he backflipped it. It's a trick we see from every rider. Sorghe has won 3 times with nothing but backflips, so you can win with simple tricks on big features... can't you?

Rampage Judge Darren Berrecloth Speaks Out On 2023 Event
@vinay: yep. This suggestion comes up every year. Why not just wait until all runs are done and then just give us a score sheet? They seem to think it adds excitement as we wait for each score but to be honest it's tedious and slow. I'd rather just watch the next rider. And they're always unwilling to give big score for an early run.

Rampage Judge Darren Berrecloth Speaks Out On 2023 Event
@Radbill: this!!! How come last year Rheeder won because his line was so tough and technical and original - out on the margins without years of buffing - yet Emil got way less reward while adding insane tricks and style to it? Okay so it's less original this year but no less tech. And if originality and line choice supposedly score big, as Bearclaw says, HELLO!!! Brendog had a completely new, unique line that nobody else touched and was the only rider to use the battleship and complete their run. It's such a shame that Godziek and Kaudela didn't get their runs done because they were supposedly very original too (and both rode the ship) and that could have given us a better picture of where/how that would score. As it is Brendog had far and away the most creative line choice. Seems to me that being North American gives you an automatic +5 score at Rampage. McGazza is the only guy to get the respect due for a canyon gap vs. a drop... and he still finished 2nd. I think the judges do a tough job pretty well in general, but - correct me if I'm wrong - all 5 are N. American. Every year. Unconscious bias? #brendogwasrobbed

@ashlemon: no it isn't. There are plenty of other routes either before (Gemini jeep rd) or after Gold Bar (Poison Spider) to avoid Portal.
