jon, embedding for you. gnarly, bent frame, cracked wheel! re: embeds not sure about phone, if you're on a laptop, there are 3 little dots in upper right of an insta post. click it, you'll see "embed" - grab that code and just paste into the body here (it's insanely long/complicated...be warned, once you make the post, editing will be a major PIA here).

It's me alright! Been off the radar growing the next gen groms. My oldest son is 9 and killing it on the mtb. Crankworx 2028!

Read Spomers' post above with the Red Bull communiqué. I'm pretty sure that the drones are part of the show.

Storch Out. Broken Collarbone.

Not 100% sure I got the embed code right, but... here's Tippie's video of Brage's crash. Brage has his shoulder in a sling when he's walking away. Doesn't look good. The crater he left in the landing is ridiculous.

Brage confirmed to be out. Hope it’s just the shoulder and nothing more serious. Such a huge slam.

Yet again, we have athletes diagnosing their own concussions (more or less).

When I was advocating for some kind of baseline testing (on the Inside Line), this is why I was advocating for it. You can have a mild concussion which is nearly impossible to diagnose without some kind of baseline to refer back to. This unfortunately sets you up to have a much worse concussion if you clap the dome again.

I'm not saying every crash is a concussion, but I'd sure treat it like that when your head hits the ground as hard as these guys, again, in the absence of baseline testing.

Sorry for the rant, just kills me to see how little we are really doing around this.

Side note - looks like the dirt is a bit slower than past years (more moisture?)

but there's the BF Goodrich Toughness Award on the line! (sarcasm, and again, i haven't found any specific information on what "toughness" is going to be rewarded, so maybe it's not getting wrecked and returning). my stress for watching the event today comes out by being a jerk on the internet.

I am ready! Legs go!!

Btw, bumerang with all the guys getting huet. Brages drop must be up there with the biggest at rampage(?). Since i am form Norway, i might be a little biased. But man, that was so big! Both him and Carson went out by going like 15cm to short.

|

10/15/2021 12:02 PM

This feels like mountain biking's version of squid game. I hate seeing so many slams.

|

10/15/2021 12:05 PM

Semenuk on old Avid Code brakes. Wtf?!

|

10/15/2021 12:09 PM

Yea... Not feeling positive about Tom's crash. That didn't look nice. I hope he's ok.

New strategy: make the chillest line possible, and don't practice. Wait for everyone better than you to crash out. Win.

Who was the guy who'd just poach lines? Had a double last name? That was a rad strategy too. Save on build crew, show up on practice day, and just shralp lines. Related: I think there should be some compulsory lines, or maybe you should be forced to do a third run on someone else's line too...current format lacks something for me.

Sal Masekela just said that a dude's family couldn't be there because they're back with the dog, who's "in the midst of transitioning." I'm pretty sure he's talking about the dog dying, but that's been my highlight so far.

Second-round scoring seems much more generous than the first round.

OK, I guess not for everyone. Lol.

Snore. Boring as f***. It seems if you're not part of the good old boys click it doesn't matter what you do. If you're in with them you can flip ad nauseam down the hill and get in the finish coral for the circle jerk.

10/15/2021 2:09 PM

I think they film the atleths to much, they dont act normal. To fabricated, or unreal.

Riding was insane. What Zink said about not having control down that chute? Wft.

Boring? Were we watching the same feed? I had mixed feelings about some of the scores/rankings (as always) but I sure as hell wouldn't call it boring.

Mixed feelings on the event this year. Hope Tom’s ok. Riddle should’ve scored better. Not a podium but his score felt low compared to some others. Had there not been so many crashed he may have been scored out of an automatic invite back despite having one of the most memorable runs and lines.

Honestly, Zink riding that chute as fast as he did was one of the highlights for me. I had a total Holy shit moment when he did it.

Also, Riddle's moto style, amazing. I want more of that. All of those big moves over shadowed the rest of the crowd for me. Not to take away from skills I don't have, but Even Semenuck's moves were just bigger version of the same tricks he always does on bigger terrain. Riddle's looked so fresh and the hangtime/amplitude of his moves just seemed on another level to me. 1st in my mind for sure but I guess they needed to give Brandon one more before he starts to focus on Rally entirely.

Also, Tom. As mentioned above his slam has me very concerned. It looked like he took a head first hit and I didn't see him moving much after he went down other than his arms. I'm really hoping he's ok, this year was scary AF.

Update on TVS's IG if someone can embed, lots of breaks and re-separated his shoulder, surgery tomorrow.

|

10/15/2021 8:23 PM

Holy hell.... I'm glad to hear I was wrong about it but fuck. Not worth it, that crash made me sick.
