Hmm maybe you're not impressed because you can't relate at all to it? I can imagine this was very very difficult to do especially considering how hard it is to skim a bike straight lining with more speed and still having the front skids for float. He wasn't making a statement on anything, just making a crazy idea that people have thought of before come to life. As for the pollution factor, its been stated that this is just a single stunt with a bike drained of all excess gas/oil not needed for the film time. Jet skis and boats come in big numbers around surf and big wave surf sessions so a 2 stroke ripping around for a day is negligible compared to even just one decently sized surf session. Its funny to see people get upset over a visually stunning stunt especially when the reasons for getting upset makes no sense whatsoever.

Cutting people off in corners is by no means poor form. You're in a race and if someone is in front of you and slowing you down, you have every right to pass them. However running into course marshals because you're cutting the clearly marked course heavily is pretty weak. I'll never get people who defeat the purpose of a race by not racing the actual trail. A course that long cannot be fully taped off and I may be a puss by saying this but it completely ruins the spirit of the race. You're not proving anything by doing that. However, there were some amazingly sneaky and awesome lines early one and what Fabien did to pass that dude. Those lines are awesome.

I'm assuming under the visor mounted upside down (taped in). NE Style looks incredible. The work they did to that has made it a giant flow fest. awesome.

The beauty of not having electric assist- The higher you make your way into the trail system, the less gapers and people overall crowding the trails. Electric assist is a horrendous idea. If you're too lazy to pedal to the top, stick to the lifts. At least then we know what trails to avoid. They look massively fun but so does blowing shit up. However, you don't see me in the streets throwing molotov cocktails.

I was thinking more of the flag guy because he used the wrong color but yeah the dude standing on the knuckle should also be banned from the track. That was absurd.

hope that course marshall is taken out back and shot. JK but really, he shouldn't be up there. If that was a few seconds difference in time, she woulda tagged the end of that van. scary stuff.
That was sick, very cool style. Also loved the throwback music! so good.
Lacondeguy maybe but not Soderstrom. There are many other freeriders that can be considered above both of those choices that have done much more important and impactful things up till this point. Soderstrom has yet to do anything (aside from consistent podium finishes and smooth style) to be considered one of the greats of all time and I don't see anything happening down the line that would change my mind... unless he goes 2 full seasons undefeated.

Great list and I would agree with a lot of that but it kinda sucks they only focused on racing... also why didn't this tea sucker include Gwin?! Even if he retired now, he would be among the all-time greats of DH.
