It's been a great weekend for the Olympics with Canada taking gold in Men's Hockey. But in the bike world great things were also happening. Tyler McCaul threw down a triple tail whip on the Mega Ramps with his brother Cam watching on.

 It's good to see someone whipping it like those bmxers. But instead of a little kid's bike, he did it on a real bike

 miller is far more a machine than crosby. he got lucky on that shot and we all know it. he even said he didnt look at the net.

 definately but miller like hardly even tried to stop that one it looked like....
  • + 4
 miller was ready for a poke check and wasn't expecting a shot. crosby knew that. otherwise he would have went behind the net and made another game winning play. but that doesn't matter, cause Canada is far more a machine than the States. don't even try to argue that one.

 and this vid is sick...glad to see us catching up to the 20" wheels.
  • - 2
 catching up?? that looked like shit, he didnt even get his feet back on, i know ill take shit for this but in my eyes he didnt land that
  • - 2
 Agreed.
  • + 1
 but he got it under him i bet with like 1or2 more ttrys he can do so just shutup
  • + 2
 I'm sure the first tailwhip on a 26" wasn't landed clean either. It's called progress.

 uhh bigdan30 thats a lie. we beat you 5 to 3 in the first game. and then in the second we had to go into overtime and then you unskillfully scored. im pretty sure the US is far more of a machine then canada. and the US got the most medals
  • + 2
 Please do not say that any of our goals were unskillful, did you see any of yours from the 5-3 game? The empty-netter was the best one!
  • + 1
 i diddnt say they all were. just the last one crosby made. he even said he didnt look at the net

 If you guys wouldnt mind taking this pointless argument to a pm that would be much appreciated.... Nothing like logging into pinkbike and have 17 notifications on your dash from a hockey argument. The game is over, We won gold. Maybe next time america. The argument between canadians and americans will never end... imo

 why did i get negative props????????????

 read the 2nd coment and u posted in a bmx, the little kids toys are like boomerangs. but i will admit it was a cool trick, would be better on a mtb.

 run 1: W
run 2: Wo
run 3: WOW!!! lol

That's just straight up CRAZY! Mad props! tup

 hey freezryder. yes, we are in fact catching up to the 20" wheels. have we met their trick difficulty? not at all. are we closer to their trick difficulty, now that we can do triple whips? absolutely. that's common sense.
  • + 12
 it is pretty sick but Martin soderstrom has landed one before he did it in Straight Outta Sweeden 3 in 2009. none the less great job!
  • + 6
 Im going to be the first person of few to point out that bmx copied motocross! HENCE THE NAME! !doits!all of you who a still want to argue about mtb copying bmx etc are all total idiots! Im so sick of hearing it all, Bmx will always be ahead tricks wise because they started hmmmmm years before people started to shred mtbs! Fullbug gets the picture
  • + 5
 well said joekb! trickin' evolves from bmx everything else adds amplitude and speed to it. unless there's an undergound mtb scene that's creating tricks bmxers haven't seen. props to your roots people!I'm sure every MTB DJer watches the bmx scene to learn and get ideas from djs to street to park and then translates it big to ss. oh yeah, sweet trick, Tyler!!!

 much respect to the mccauls and soderstoms of the world AS WELL AS the condor, mirras and DMCs of the world too. It's all good cuz it's all guys progressing. the smack talk about one or the other is weak-ass plyground shite. grew up racing bmx and hope to grow old with mtbs. if you dig bikes you dig it all.

 Its cool but its not worth a fuss. 1. It was on a resi. 2. Quad whip was done on a BMX ages ago. 3. Its not landed til you land it to the pedals. Now neg prop me all you like, but you know I'm right.
  • + 2
 I realize the triple shows the progression of the sport, but I think the single at the beginning looks way better than the triple, kinda like how a big slow moto whip is still one of the best looking tricks, quality over quantity

 Oh my lord, that is so sick.
  • + 3
 Hold on, lemme pick my jaw up off the floor. Salute major respect for Tyler. Personally I don't think he gets enough credit.

 saw a bmx rider do a quad tailwhip over a ramp 5 times smaller than that and land it on his pedals. MTB street/freestyle is always sooo far behind, oh and tandembikemike who ever you are your kinda taking the piss out of mountain biking by saying there trying to be like bmxer's . If small bikes are silly why do mountain bikers try so hard to copy them and fail most of the time??? oh and if you wanna see it here's the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSpRdDfXHaQ

Have a nice day yall Smile

 youre sooooooo fullll of shiiiiiiiiiiit
bmx is a kids bike.. if you keep riding it when your older... you will never get out of the city.. or anywhere else for that matter..
we care about our bikes...well most of us do.. and we dont immitate you/bmxers .. we show you how its done on a real bike..

now with that said.. i can sleep comfortable tonight.. Big Grin

 Because you know, even one of the guys at the forefront of slopestyle Greg Watts even said "we're so far behind BMX, we copy their tricks a couple years later..." If you want my to scan the interview of when he switched to Haro and said it, I'de be happy to.

Everybody know BMX is at the forefront. And for the idiot who said BMX compied motocross, yeah, it did, BMX RACING, meaning off road. The tricks had nothing to do with motocross. And even then, motocross is "so far behind BMX in tricks", it doesn't even matter.

Oh, and tell people like Dave Mirra, Jay Miron, Rueben Alcantara, and Ryan Nyquist "BMX are for kids", and they'll laugh at you all the way to the bank.

 Any triple tail whip is gnarly, definitely not taking away from it. But to the guy who said whipping it like the BMXers, the BMXers don't need that much run up or air.

 Nice, but if we have to be picky, its not in a comp so doesn't count for much. Pretty cool though
  • + 1
 doesn't count for much? then why would anyone ever ride a bike? surely to have fun and to amaze people? anyway i think there is a point, to progress the sport!
