 He may not be as technically talented as the top FMB riders but his style sure is one of the most pleasing to watch.

 For a few seconds I was like "I could run most of that" then I was like "Fuuuuug that"

 @larr: I dunno man... those 6-8 ft. drops with perfectly manicured landings sure are tricky.

 @scott-townes: first drop is about 15 ft, man Wink

 @Hyperx: LOL, yeah in pinkbike feet.

 @scott-townes: You can see in this picture www.pinkbike.com/photo/12573842 that it is for sure bigger than 6-8 feet. It is about 2-3 times as tall as Tom in this. It is around 12-15 vertical feet to the top of the knuckle, and bigger if you land a little low.

 @leon-forfar: hahaha, you do realize they changed the starting drop last year, right? good grief.
  • 4 0
 @scott-townes: Ha. Ha. Stop running your mouth about things you do not know. the start drop has not changed in years. There is now a lipped step down next to, but the drop is the same. 15 x 15.

 @scott-townes: I saw it in person 3 weeks ago, and have been to crankworks and whistler for years. It has basically been unchanged for the last 3-4 years

 @leon-forfar: Well then you're a f*cking idiot because the video above in this story and when Rogatkin did a fast plant 3 whip last year (along with every other run vid) clearly shows a different drop. How hard do you try in being a complete jackass?
  • 3 0
 @scott-townes: They added a small drop before it last year but the main big one has stayed the same.

 @Chrislegg: Yeah which is the starting drop... so yeah, he's wrong.
  • 3 0
 @scott-townes: I think everyone overlooked that drop because it was tiny. No need to be a dick when everyone here was obviously talking about the big "start" drop as that is the first real feature on the course. We all knew which one we were talking about..

 @leon-forfar: LOL, nah you didn't obviously.

 @choppertank3e: www.pinkbike.com/photo/6321301 this is me on a hardtail dirt jumper at the original Rampage course. 6" Marzocchi up front. No Pinbike feet, it was actually measured from where I landed on up. Hitting a 12-15' drop on a hardtail isn't THAT big of a deal, and there are a fair few Pinbikers who have done more. Granted, I had plusher suspension than slopestyle guys run, but still.

 biggest dick flexing conversation ever you guys, put it in your pants. no one would ride any of that course and that is that

 I rode up the chairlift about 40 times last week and watched the course being built. So cool to see some guys actually ride and rip it!!!!!

 Love seeing McGazza forever on the whale kicker

 Camera angle a tad too low.

 In my opinion they should replace one of the manufactured ramps with a dirt jump, I'm kind of into scenic, "natural" jump spots.

 takes a lot more work to pull that off so it will probably never happen. and the potential for the lip to give way would not be good
