@mtriquelme: twister at the beginning of the run weighs way more than a flip bar to oppo whip unfortunately. frontflip with a 720 combination trick, 3 whip the cannon as well is a difficult maneuver on a tight feature. I think you might have watched an entirely different show as to what I was. And Gully was explaining one judging criteria with an example to people to understand and this was not a concept as you say it is. Did you see the actual landings of every single trick? I'm completely sure the judges see that. Sure, maybe triple whip from Rogatkin is a safe trick in your opinion because he does it every time, but think about it for a second - a clean landed triple whip with both feet on the pedals against a whatever flip or 360 /oppo 360 barspin + other combination landed feet on cranks or landed a bit on a sketchy side... Would you really reward a person who is wobbly when stomping the trick more than another person riding away with a difficult trick of his own perfectly? This sends a completely bad example towards the community and to the people who watch the contests, whether it being live or livestream - you can win a contest by not controlling your tricks. In gymnastics you would get completely trashed upon if you landed sideways on a flip variation, so why must a professional contest that involves extreme sports be any different to that? You should go watch Logan Martin's runs at Fise or just watch his Instagram how he trains. You have to understand that this is a professional sport and it has to be taken seriously. One of the aspects is controlling the tricks. The audience do not want to watch people jumping off of something and doing something that can end up in more than just a bruise or a scratch. This is not only a contest but a show for many. There are fans who watch these athletes ride and their way of riding sets an example for everybody else. I can see that Rheeder was your favourite coming to an event and you did want him to win, however execution matters a lot. I actually admire this judging a lot, because after seeing what was going on at Simple Session 14 and 17, I was completely shocked by the judging that went down there in the park side of the contest and wasn't so sure of the judging in the street as well this year.

He did not. Did you listen to what Gully said about the judging? Gully - a 360 barspin to tuck no hander gets more points than a 360 triple barspin. So a Cashroll whip against a flip double whip gets more points and that is only 1 trick. You have to break down all the tricks in the same way throughout the course to figure the trick difficulty aspect alone. After this - flow, amplitude, execution count as well.
