This ain’t sh*t without explosions, scantily clad women and Nickleback playing. How else are we supposed to sell mountain biking?

He blew it, feet didn’t end up on the pedals.

yeah, there’s some grey area there as to whether or not he “landed” it. Still friggin impressive though!

Air ballet. All these foam pit practicing guys are blowing it. More like stuntman antics than sick bike riding. Plus the mega ramp is for skateboards.

Red bull rampage is sicker than this. Average pro dh course is even sicker.

According to Rico suave logic macaskill and akrigg are crap riders.

Too be honest, this stuff is pretty cornball.

Almost all on the videos usually posted on Pinkbike are better then that stunt.

Hey satisFACTORYrider when did I say that? Get off the crack jack, I like those guys’ vids. Those guys are in the woods and on the street. I’ve been through butt loads of bmx bandit phases in my life racing bmx back to the 80s. I also had a Haro master and did some really [deleted] kick turns in JT suits and rode 4′ wide quarter pipes all day long. I like all cycling disciplines but this post/trick was presented as a question so I answered from the gut.

It’s just my opinion on mega ramp using foam pit practice!

I am Rico. I need to remember to use the same name on this site. Plus, it always gives me an error when i submit a comment.

Double back flip to computer smash.
