Added a comment about feature Prize Purse Strings: Drawn Too Tight? 2/24/2019 12:21 PM

Real changes need to have a coordinated effort from the top most officials. Problem is- they don’t see anything as a problem. Their perspective is: we just coordinating an event for athletes to display their talent ......and their current or future sponsors can splash the cash. They figure: You don't like the prize money.......? Then stay home and make a YouTube video of your bike race (or whatever you do).
It’s kinda like the Health Care industry - everybody knows it’s whole corrupt but what else can you do as a consumer? Corruption and greed is the standard and the people that *could* change it don’t see any problems with the current system.

Spomer- please clarify something for me about the judging. I always assumed the judges all input there own personal scoring # into the computer to create an *average of all 5 judges scores....with all having their own independent assessment of the run. But when Kyle was talking about Brendawg’s scoring - he said something to the affect: We all knew he should be in 10th place, and the actual number didn’t really matter .......almost as if the judges all have a group discussion about what the score should be before scoring it - “independently” . Every video shot of the judges I have ever seen in Slopestyle contest or Rampage - the judges seem to not be talking at all but immersed in deep thought, or watching replays. Are they having a pow-wow about scoring first????

I wouldn’t mind if my bike could, for example - calculate the probability of success or failure when i’m at the top of some new bike park’s freeride trail,etc. Like if you hiked to the top of Brendawg’s or Zink’s line at Rampage..... and the bike calculates: ... more »

LOVE this time of year that I remember I have a whole week of Shreddy Awards. HATE that my bike didn't even get a mention... Oh yeah, I haven't posted any of them. Do you guys still accept bike checks with 26 inch wheels?

Added a comment about video TEAM BRENDOG REDBULL RAMPAGE LINE BEHIND THE SCENES (2018) 11/3/2018 1:28 AM

I heard a pretty credible rumor last year that Bizet got low balled because he built a huge drop he did not ride. And that was considered a building “faux pas” by some judges- so he was docked 10 points before he ever took his run. I wonder if somehow the same thing happened to B-Dawg - where there was some perceived “faux pas” he or his crew did?
And on a similar conspiracy theory note: What do you think would have happened if Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson actually started giving Shout Outs to Brendog on Instagram (like Brendawg was trying to do)? And maybe The Rock makes an Instagram video post saying: “I’ll be watching your run homie!!”.......Does anyone really think this would not have gotten him 10 or 15 bonus points, on the same run, just for getting a shout out from the highest paid celebrity in Hollywood?

Added a comment about feature How to Make Everyone Happy with Rampage 10/30/2018 12:28 AM

This sounds like a good idea, on the surface.........until you realize: **How are the 5 judges supposed to figure out where a mid pack rider’s placement goes? For example, if 10 riders have done runs - and Remy M comes down and does an OK run without crashing....... all they know is - He’s not 1st place - and he ain’t last place.......So is he 5th place? 8th place? And you would have to have all 5 judges agree what his placement is......or you are right back where you began- a scoring system. The only way this would work is if the riders somehow inexplicably agreed rankings, other than 1st place, didn’t matter anymore.
