Delorme is one of the most stylish riders out there. That edit would do serious work in this years competition.
It's been said, but KOS is unfortunately just like any other big-air event. Well, maybe that's not entirely fair, but more or less.
Was it Rich Permin who won a few years ago with some less tech tricks? I forget...maybe like a cork 7 true nose?
Anyway, just like JOI, there's maybe 20 guys who you could easily make a case for being worthy of competing...I empathize with the tough spot the judges are in.
The fact is that there has been a fair amount of homogenizing in jumping ability. The lines between "super pro", "pro", "am", and "grom" have became hazy to say the least. I say make it an open event with a registration cap of about 100 (with a dozen or so pre-qualified athletes), and let 'em battle it out.
