Yeah I would completely agree.
I don't know how the vital team can consider this a decent value, when the YT base has a better component spec, option for 29 inch wheels, let alone the geometry. Sure you can call it "classic" but is that really doing justice to the reader?

While I have loved the content that the VitalMTB team has been putting out for years, I am definitely feel like I am seeing a higher trend to have favorable reviews of major sponsors products, and higher number of "product releases" from those sponsors as well. As a result I find myself checking Vital less often in favor of other competing websites. Anyone else in this noticing this?

He got 4th at what was probably the most competitive Rampage to date. Just to make the top 10 this year you had to have a pretty remarkable run. Not to mention the amount of media he's gotten in the last year and especially the last couple of weeks. Your comment, and the thousands of others like it across the internet, shows that he is being recognized. Not to mention his tribute to Jordie. It sucks he didn't get best trick or peoples choice, which is surprising. But I don't think Brendog needs a participation award to feel good about what he accomplished this week either. He achieved his goal of top 5 and walked away with some banger shots from his canyon gap like he was hoping for.

I totally hear you on that and yes, many riders avoid going all in just as World Cup racers don't practice at their limits. I've been to Rampage many times, I've hung off those cliffs and I've built those lines. A number of those riders are my friends and I know what they put into getting ready for Rampage; Fest is a small portion of that equation.
You are right though, in the end it is the rider's call. I only hope they have been given as much autonomy to make that call as what the marketing claims.

Many Rampage riders have gone on record saying they do not ride full-pull Rampage runs more than once a year because they are simply too gnarly. Those same riders went out & created the Fest Series so they could practice Rampage-level speed & amplitude under more controlled, lower-pressure conditions. If Fest riders believe their builds are the best, most sustainable way to grow freeride, I'm inclined believe them.

I just think there will always be some issues with the event. With so many variables its never going to be perfect and some problems just can't be solved. Like even your baseline score idea sounds good on the surface but how would it work in real life? It takes days of digging before you can even begin to visualize what a riders run will look like (especially at a new venue). By time the judges would even be able to start establishing a baseline score the riders would likely be way to far into their builds to make wholesale changes anyway.

Let's fix this quote so it doesn't sound so cheesy.

There now it's believable.

Also these prices are silly, the low end model is right in line with the top end Capra. I know they have different business models but holy balls that's a lot of cheddar for SLX brakes.
