This year wasn't the first year that they removed the Red Bull Evel Knievil style woodwork. Last year benefited from it too :)
Personally I'd love to see more of a return back to its roots (the last two years have to some extent).
I think tricks should be scored much lower than line choice and speed / style. Some of the riders lines are basically manicured all the way down the mountain, like a much steeper Crankworx course. While its impressive, there's already well established events that scores for these.
Rampage should be about death defying chutes, hucks and gaps - Finding features on the hill that make impressive stunts (like Brendans rock) and riding terrain that should be impossible to all but the most skilled riders.
Keeps the tricks to the mega booter events and hopefully this would level the scoring field for the majority of the riders.
