yo what do you guys think about the fact that so many kids can do all these nutty combos and tricks? And what do you think it means for the future of fmb?
Good for them, I personally can’t do half the tricks that most kids do these days. However it takes little effort to go build a step up or mulch jump, get your slope training on, and huck some combos and send them at a “slopestyle” contest… but lets put a real set of dirt to dirt jumps with some actual steep lips and throw in some hips and berms and lets see who’s actually got some skill when it comes to riding jumps. Just my opinion..
Where do you guys think slopestyle is going to be in 5 years? I think its slowly starting to die out. I mean maybe the competition is so hard with the top riders. But like 5 riders are able to make solid run down each course it seems like.
I would much rather watch a full 5 minute video part filmed over the course of a whole season than a 3 minute edit filmed over the course of a week in 1 spot. Skaters, Bmxers, Snowboarders, and Skiers all do this shit. Why don't a lot of people in MTB do it?? Like fuck. Wink and Rupert changed the game with Insight, that shit was on a whole different level and still is.
Less riders are able to be just video dudes like they can be in those other sports. The change is coming, we are looking forward to it as well.
