DeepskierGo do a fucking zero spin over a 90 foot jump also this thread should be about bobby's big air he stopped on one air and did a straight air on another
For real? That shit isn't on Bobby at all. Those conditions were atrocious, and the organizers never should've let the contest go down in the first place. The moment Ambuhl got hurt and there was a course hold for 10 minutes or so, and the snow intensified, that jump became essentially unhittable.
Bobby took one for the team and speed checked and slipped the takeoff, in the process pushing soft/slow snow off the takeoff....for everyone's benefit. He is 24, been at this shit for a long while for someone so young, and knows better than to huck a triple on a snowy, slow jump and run the risk of ending his season, or possibly his career. I just don't see at all how you could fault Bobby for that shit. If you're the kind of person who doesn't speed check a huge kicker when it's nuking and the conditions have dramatically changed, well, you're not the kind of person who finds himself skiing big air at the x games.
I feel like there's been a huge influx of gapers on here recently, particularly in this thread. Like....how can you be a skier, immersed in ski culture....and never have heard the term "threw a shoe" or "lost a shoe"? It's one thing to not know the term, but it's something else to mock someone else for using it when you're just clueless.
Hey OP....where's your outrage thread for McRae throwing a rodeo 5 revert on the MEGAMO MONEYBOOTER?! You gotta put it all on the line for X baby!
Or maybe the speed and lighting was just completely fucked and he knew he wasn't going to get a big dub or triple to his feet and he didn't want to get bundled in a toboggan and hauled off the mountain by medical. But, what a selfish prick, right OP?! You paid good money to sit on your fucking couch and watch skiers do shit you can barely dream of, you're entitled to the most spinniest and flippiest and amplitudiest X-treme ski action of all-time! Fuck Henrik, fuck Bobby, and fuck McRae, I want my money back.
