Opinion: Freeride is Dead, Long Live Freeride
@emrysevans: Mate, you're not considering the whole context. In the freeride world tour you can't try the line you'll ski, it's all on-sight, you don't know what the snow will be like, it might be completely different in a 50m radius or 30mins later. Also it's really hard to stick to a line and know exactly where to hit that cliff and where to land. Consider also that most of the times, competitions take place in complete utter s...t snow even if it doesn't seem like. I wouldn't say the consequences of hitting a cliff at speed that you've never done before, hoping to land between rocks is much different than hitting a drop in dirt that you've practiced several times and that saw other people do as well.

Richie Rude Disqualified from EWS Tweed Valley
@whambat: Any non-mentally handicapped adult knows plastic poles don't grow out of the dirt. They were there cause somebody deliberately placed them there, moreover, they were put quite regularly, so it wasn't just in a single corner but on both sides of the delimited trail at a consistent distance between each other. Now, anybody who has a minimum common sense will look at it and get it, or at least wonders why they are there and if they really don't have the grey matter to understand it, they ask. Really, the excuse is lame, just like drinking from somebody else's water bottle, which I'm not saying didn't happen but if you're that stupid to make such a declaration, which anybody knows you'll get mocked for life even if it's true, really tells me the intellectual level of said person.
