 Are we still doing this pinkbike? Putting the winner in the title so it ruins it if you want to look for a replay? Seriously redonkulous.
  • + 8
 Yeah thats shit

 @konafreak90: they have done this so many times its crazy. They stopped for a while i think but i guess it's back. It's not the same if you know who wins.....

 I clicked because it was written Rogatkin!

 @yanndmc: me too. Keep up the spoilers pinkbike!

 Yeah what a way to spoil it for the rest of us who have yet to watch it.

 They were really good about it during last year UCI DH

 So who's gonna be the first twat to whine about something he did wrong?
  • + 10
 Not even me this time. That was as smooth as butter and as wild as a boar!!!!
  • + 18
 The only thing he did wrong was he may have used a little too much force when he hammered the final nail in the coffin containing his competition. I would hate for him to strain a muscle while swinging that metaphorical hammer. Wink

 Can we talk about his helmet?

 @PoussMouss: you've got a point, it may have been brought to the table before mind you...

 No trick at the drop, dunno why did they score him that high...

How many rotations did he do? Was it a 1080 or is it my head spinning?
  • + 3
 @brooce: that wasn't his winning run that was his celebratory run when he had already won it. On his winning run he tricked every feature . It was amazing to pull such bangers when there was nothing on it. I saw another rider win and he pretty much just straight aired the second run which was kinda lame for the fans, but there is of course a lot of risk

 @PoussMouss: I got negative propped out of existence for bringing up the helmet! WTF?!
  • + 1
 @PoussMouss: you mean the same helmet that he crashed at rampage in? He did finish his run after that....

 @LUUKKKEEEE: I was one of his biggest haters to be fair, I much prefer style over tricks all day long. But he is pushing the sport so much, you can't fault him for that. But yeah, someone like Justin Inman is way better to watch.

 @LUUKKKEEEE: dude, most of pinkbike users riding smth like enduro, they can't know what style is about, that's why your comments are neg propped...

 @PoussMouss: I'm pretty sure I saw a video with him a year or two ago where he said he can't see as well and spot his landing with a visor. That, and it's kind of his trade mark look now and sets him apart, I for one only remember him from that video because of his helmet.
  • + 2
 @PoussMouss: Came back to this page and found an ad for Rogatkin's helmet with the visor attached. Hahaha.I don't think anyone would deny Kali makes great helmets, but the no-visor bowling ball look is just a little odd.
  • + 2
 @charmingbob: It's clearly working for him so he can rock whatever he wants. Totally agree.
  • + 22
 Why won't pinkbike learn that we don't want the winners name in titles? Son of a bitch! I wasn't able to watch last night because I work 6 days a week and can't stay up till 3am. I'm still looking forward to the replay tonight, but come on now.
  • + 2
 i guess u gotta stay off pinkbike until you watch the live/replay
  • + 4
 @Pokin: I guess so. I thought they had stopped doing that since they haven't for a while.

From now on I'll just try to avoid pinkbike and go through Red Bull's website for the reply.

 The long no hander was my favorite

 Agreed, extension like nothing I've ever seen. He's so natural just not being attached the bike!! Madness!

 He killed it !! I wish to see him destroy the opposition this season.. he is next level !

 Pinkbike should include a series of recipes for crow on this page so that its followers can find the easiest/ tastiest way to f*cking eat it. Maybe rogatkin should paint a crow pie on that helmet of his.
Congrats again nicolai!

 His twisters are getting a hell of a lot cleaner now. Hell of a victory lap!
  • + 1
 His ridin g overall has become much smoother and it doesn't look like he's forcing the moves now. He's clearly been working hard, I wasn't an early fan but I'm bloody well impressed now!

 I'm bummed that the judges didn't score this run, I seriously want to know where just his friggin' victory lap would put him.
