All discussion about it here now... less clutter, easier to follow.
I wanna see big air, progressive tricks, and a lot of hot girls looking up in awe.
does anyone have any video of the comp or at least t's run?
Hopefully it goes up on the EXPN site at some point, but I'm not optimistic.
What ... where was tanners special trick ?
That was awesome to watch ... Simon did great for that much pain
and tha ankle breaking video .. that was haunting ... "My ankles are BROKEN !" dang..
His trick was when he said he had this special trick, but he never actually did the trick, and he tricked everyone...tricky
Top 3 for sure deserved there spots, but all I can say is that Favre's 3rd run made the whole crew I was watching with jump up and clap and go crazy...no one else brought that through the ENTIRE run.
does anybody know the format of the videos on expn.com? is it avi or what
i like how they beeped out tanner saying "holy shit" at the bottom of his run......but farve yelled "gunit motherfuckers" at the top of his.
so Candide didn't compete because Field "beat" him, but for all that fuss, we didn't even HEAR Field's name... had Candide been in the comp, that would have made for an exciting fight for first. it was a sweet comp to watch, but it could have been just a little better. mad props to all who threw down, though.
I really liked the switch tricks in the pipe. i had a class that ended at 8 so i didn't get to see the first runs and part of the second. when i saw laurent farve's switch tricks, i was jumping up and down yelling. i thought this pipe comp was really fun to watch is a step in the right direction. i just thought that jon olsson really didn't go 100%. i know that it is difficult under pressure and stuff like that but it never really looked like he tried. i am not trying to diss him in any way by saying this.
anybody have video of any of the other runs besides top 3?,,, us poor bastards in canada don't all get espn,,,
yeah hatveit wouldve owned
i wouyld have liked to see candide's run just for shits and giggles. you never see him in any mags, or movies (besides pullup wich i don;t have), and i wanna know what he is been up too.
dumont should have oneeee.
Favre's runs sucked so what if he went switch in the pipe he got like 5 feet out on his switch hits and his first hit was pretty high but he had no style at all. The Dumont absolutely threw down and should have had 2nd for sure. Eveyone is sayin that Tanner's run is nothing special but it was way sick he deserved the gold no matter what everyone says about him getting the medal just because ESPN wanted him to win coming off of an injury Dumont was coming off of an injury and they talked about him too.
