 schedule's cleared, beers are cold, lungs are ready to yell at the webcast when it cuts out. let's do this.

 Redshit TV - 3minutes !!! More seriously I do hope they continue their good stream like the last couple XC/DH WC rounds
  • + 28
 Hopefully Semenuk doesn't fall off the bridge before the course again.
  • + 16
 I feel his course just has too many features. The pressure is insane and you cant see eveyones actual potential cuz they need like 12 different tricks and they need to nail them on the biggest features in the world. Not suprising only 6 riders could complete a run down. Props to the riders tho, you guys are insane. Very entertaining but I just don't want to see every athletes getting injured. Injury sucks and these riders are just like us, they love to ride.

 Separates the kids from the big boys.

 @Neechy: this** and yeah for sure. But being a grown injured man who cant ride for a year is pretty shitty let me tell ya.
  • + 5
 hell being a grown man that can't ride for 3 months of a year from injury sucks. Injuries suck
  • + 13
 Victory lap fail lol
  • + 7
 Someone shoulda tossed him a multi tool to get that stem straight. Painful to watch!
  • + 1
 @jpcars10s: Yeap, it just looked like he was stalling to let the embarrassment pass haha
  • + 10
 Yeeeeoow so pumped! Still remember the hard times when you had to wait for the next Bike Film on a VHS to see the action. Like New World Disorder back in the day Smile
  • + 8
 They will stop the music and shut people's mouth to film a semenuk RAW haha
  • + 8
 No Brad Jay!!!! Let's go!!!!!!
  • - 2
 Yeah. Go ride your roller blades with your bro Pat the barney.
  • + 6
 first run was a huge disapointment...so many crashes Frown is it the course? Innsbruck was a blast to watch and there weren't that many crashes in two runs
  • + 8
 Semenuk drops first! So don't be late!
  • + 2
 He definitely can't get a run in the 90 (points) if he is first ... because judges have no reference before him ! That can suck for him I m afraid
  • + 3
 @RedBurn: but he will have second run after the bar has been set.
  • - 2
 @yes of course ! But damn no chance tho ! Its a bit like he has only one chance for the win (his second run) ... but he does magic, can't wait to see what he will send !
  • + 5
 I'm Sorry, Martin Soderstrom all the way
  • + 1
 I doubt that
  • + 2
 @RedBurn: Who knows, but why not judge everyone's first runs in one go once they have all completed them? Too logical and not entertaining enough? The alternative is to allow scores over 100...
  • + 8
 SEMENUK! SEMENUK! SEMENUK!!!
  • + 6
 i have to go pick up my wife and son, I'll have to come back later to watch a replay of Semenuk's winning run.
  • + 8
 Ok
  • + 6
 Semenuk's run has to be shown in black & white colors - like his other videos. Style.
  • + 6
 i would have put Brandon in the 90s with that first run!
  • + 6
 first full pull is always a low scoring calibration run. The fact that he was so close to 90 when most first runs are in the 60's shows how good he is.
  • + 8
 @plyawn: they need to show him some respect for innovation. He has singlehandedly mapped every trick trend in slopestyle in the last 5 years
  • + 3
 @burnadette: That's why the final 1st / 2nd is awesome; the king and the heir apparent. Semenuk is Jordan and Johansson is Lebron. I can't believe how calm and cool that kid is - he's only 18. Imagine what he'll be able to do if he spends the next 5 years around guys like Semenuk, Rheeder and Rogatkin and stays healthy and motivated!
  • + 5
 Yasssssss no Brad J, thank sweet baby jesus!!

 What? Brad J rocks. Don't know what your talking about. I bet your a roller blader.
  • + 0
 @Trudeez: you're* ?? Don't be scared. That's what training wheels are for.
  • + 2
 Rogatking all the way ! The guy is the best dude out there, such a chill and peaceful dude, smiling around en performing damn hard for all of us ! What will he do ? Twister taillwhip ? Big Grin cant wait !!
  • + 5
 1440 hopefully
  • + 2
 he did mention in the pinkbike interview the possibility of adding rotations or a trick... fingers crossed!
  • + 1
 simply no smoother rider than Semenuk! that's why Roughgatkin couldn't pull off the triple crown. he isn't smooth. he can spin his ass off but if you aren't smooth you pop tires, simple as that. i was actually pulling for Semenuk or Rheeder because both of them are smooth as hell. the judges definitely got this podium correct though! they all killed it and had near flawless runs.
  • + 4
 if anyone in the field is as smooth as Semenuk it's Johansson; I can't remember if Semenuk was as good as this kid is at 18. So much diversity too: Nyquist has been a pro rider longer than Johansson has been alive, amazing Italian, German and French riders, Rogatkin pushing the technical limits while Semenuk and Rheeder make it smooth as butter! Meanwhile watch a gold or silver event; today's second tier riders are better than the best of 5 years ago... I'm sure there are still haters but Slopestyle has never been better IMHO.
  • + 1
 Too bad i got bored watching this today. Last year was better. This year's innsbruck event was amazing. I could never do anything close to what these guys do so props to them. But still too many crashes and boring commentator. Good luck for the remaining riders
  • + 6
 Nvm nyquist's run was great !!!
  • + 3
 i told you guys, that 800 degree spin that nyquist does is the highlight of the damn contest! So burly
  • + 4
 So excited... I just pinched a flat in my lycra!
  • + 3
 Crankworks needs to hire some personalities for the broadcasts, they're making the best riding in the world seem dull....
  • + 4
 more excited than on the christmass day
  • + 2
 I was looking forward to watching this tonight - but Redbull spoiled it by putting the winning run on Youtube, featured on the main page for me. bummer.
  • + 3
 semenuk! stop drinking water! you'll have to pee!!!
  • + 4
 You don't expect him to drink redbull while he waits between first and last runs of the day do you? Peeing is better than kidney failure!
  • + 1
 All that pee must have been what made him fall
  • + 2
 @plyawn: it was funny to see him being broadcast so many times just sitting there drinking water.
  • + 2
 This has to be one of the most disappointing contests in recent history. #crashworks
  • + 4
 Do a one hander!!!
  • + 2
 Nyquist is unreal!! His experience stands out from the very start of his runs. Amazing to watch.
  • + 2
 As a fellow "old fart" I'm so happy for him and Josh. Shows how good these BMX converts are!
  • + 2
 Semenuk is simply the best slopestyle rider there is. Super consistent. No one can take the heat he dishes out.
  • + 2
 Josh Hult is a fucking hero!
  • + 1
 Hey @redbull stop switching my live feed to Spanish or German as soon as the first rider goes.
  • + 1
 Is Josh Holt riding a Mongoose?
  • + 0
 He has been on mongose all year.
  • + 1
 @Oneupper777: Me new to this...so out of all the brands I was surprised to see Mongoose being used.
  • + 1
 YEEHAA!!!! "LET IT BUCK!"!!!

 HOLY MOTHER TRUCKER SHUT THE FRONT DOOR SOMEBODY GET ME A WET WIPE
  • + 1
 so amazing
  • + 0
 no Rheeder ?
  • + 0
 crashed both runs. same with ratking
  • + 2
 @makripper: can't believe the stuff Rheeder pulled off before crashing on a relatively easy single tailwhip. I realize it was an awkward one, but you kind of think he was already planning the next jump and took his eyes off the ball. This course has no forgiveness!
  • + 2
 @plyawn: it was amateur hour out there. seems like they are so focused on the next trick, like you said that they forget about grip o the dirt or something. mind blowing.. props to the riders who put a full run together. Nyquist killed it and stepped up hard.
  • + 1
 @makripper: Were you there? I was and the wind was pretty strong. It was making the tricks very difficult. The mountain is always part of Joyride.

 Giddy I am (Yoda voice)
