 You know you're doing it well when Travis Pastrana comes to watch you riding bikes.

 Seriously, that must have been such an incredible experience and I didn't know it was Billinghurst who by the sounds was a huge part in Finn being allowed in, that's so sick. This is a bit of a claim but back in '06 we were lucky enough to fly out to Whistler from NE and do a weekend camp with him and Schley as our "coaches". Even though I was a huge fan of Richie and barely knew Adam (only watched freeride vids then), I distinctly remember Billinghurst being really fun and more memorable than Richie... and that's saying something because Richie was friggen awesome and beyond friendly/helpful. Its so tight to see Adam is still creating such a positive impact on the sport... and congrats to Finn also, haha.

 Maaan, all those feels right here. Such a happy moment watching this knowing what kind of community mountain biking is all about. Finn is killin' it already at such a young age! champion.

 I don't mean to sound pretentious, but Finn is the future of MTB and at that age it is unimaginable to see what he will be able to achieve in the future when he has got potentially two solid decades to compete as a pro rider. I just can't wait for him to get is invite to Rampage and all the other stops on the diamond tour next season. Wink

 It's not because I'm Brazilian too, but in my opinion the whip Bernardo is the best. If there is any photo that shows the whip Finn was better, please show me

 The judges looked at the whip as well as the landing. Finn had really smooth landings as well as his big whips.
  • + 3
 While bernado looks more sideways he always landed more sideways too, young Finn was landing as straight as possible, deadset full on moto style. I can honestly say this as I was literally standing on top of that jump where those photos were taken.

 I know it's rated the landing too, but even so, the championship is the whip, where Bernardo was the best. Finn made ​​smoother maneuver and it ended up landing rather obvious that. Bernardo dared more, and consequently had more difficulty in landing ... And I hope you have not weighed in the decision being a brat just 14 years, and local pilot ... But that's just my point of view, each one evaluates one way. hug
