@Mirko17: What do you mean by innovation? I'm not talking about the industry, materials, construction, technology.

@adirint: I will say this... free r8ding and things like rampage... mtb definitely in a league of its own. So gnar. Guys like zink should have their balls bronzed on a museum after they pass.

@steezer: What are you talking about? Joyride is open qualifying. You have to meet several criteria. Dude busted his ass to qualify and was one of... what... 8 dudes to do a full pull on that course. How quickly he was able to get to that level on an MTB is insane. He doesn't have the same tricks in his bag as a lot of the other guy but he's already doing way cleaner spins, bar spin combos and what not than nearly everyone else. His style is just there. It's effortless now. So clean. He didn't just "slide" in.

@jeremybmx42: That dude's a legend. Goes so damned big. Hoffman is 45 and still going huge.

@Mirko17: You guys apparently don't follow BMX. The cashroll started in BMX. It took MTB years to have 1 guy pull it off. Rogatkin landed a twister and like 3 months later godziek did a cleaner one on a bmx. Cork 7... yeah that's a bmx trick too. Off a drop... Killer. But try doing it ramp to ramp over a gap... on concrete. Or doing a cork 7 straight into a cork 1080. If you really think MTB has surpasses you don't follow bmx what so ever.

@jeremybmx42: Most definitely. I watched him smash on his BMX when they were shutting down the post office. No one is doing both better right now and that's crazy considering the dudes pushing 40. Amazing. Dudes all time. That's all there is to it.

@spankthewan: No way in hell man. MTB is going off. No doubt. Once it started it progressed as fast as anything in any sport I've ever seen. But there's no way it's surpassed. They go bigger in some cases. But BMX the style is better... think of it this way... the bike is WAY smaller so you can tweak everything that much harder and that much more inverted. And the tricks... mtb is still trailing. Every trick being done in MTB right now came from BMX and BMX still has more. Hell... Nyquist nearly pulled a 900 in a pool. A dude did a 1080 recently. triple and quad back flips, etc. Not hating on MTB either. I grew up riding bmx and have been on an mtb for a long long time. Hell... when I started jumping them people thought I was retarded. But it's just a fact... bmx is still in the lead. It's had nearly 40 years to figure it out.

Killer. This dude is genuine. That's all there is to it. He's also one of the only O.G.'s that made the transition. To me it made perfect sense. Guys get older. Knees are jacked. The larger bike is just easier on the body. The MTB industry was and still is trailing behind BMX as far as tricks and style go so if you've got it on the BMX already then why not transition to MTB as your body tells you to. I'm pushing 40 now. There's no way in hell I'd get back on a BMX right now. My back and knees just won't do it. I can barely handle smashing on my 24 any more. RyNy. You're a legend dude. Keep it up.
