Our emphasis should be on Kids bikes now. Lets see the manufacturers step up
and start building kids bikes that rock and dont have shitty forks and gears
that won't shift. Nice little bike for under a grand to get them stoked that
does not weigh a ton or cost $$ like a Little Shredder. From a 54 year old
I would say the biggest mess of the webcast was the announcers verbally
penalizing the riders who avoided the canyon gap and rzr booter and
announcing it like they were playing it safe by avoiding these features.
Rampage is a big mountain event with a huge emphasis on technical
lines. Any spectator new to the sport watching the broadcast would be
left thinking that some of the best riders in the world were
uncomfortable out there and not performing as they didn't hit the
uncreative wood features. This was a reoccurring issue throughout the
entire webcast and definitely disrespectful to the riders who took the
extra time to plan in more natural hits and creative lines.
