Why do Latina women yell so much? Women in general are basically sophisticated parakeets in situations like this, but the Latina women are on another level. What do they think they are contributing? You are doing nothing to help this, lady. I seriously think it is an evolutionary design to enable them to call the people who can actually do something useful (men). (I’ve just now found out that this is in Indonesia. Whatever, same difference).
Anyway, I have watched this about 10 times over, trying to figure out one thing: Who got up and won the race? I mean, this thing is wide open, people. Someone has the chance to be a hero. But honestly, I think every single guy is down for the count. I thought the obvious choice initially was Kawi kid bringing up the rear, but he is immediately off the track nursing the wrist. Leader took a skidplate straight to the shoulder, but I could honestly see him toughing it out and putting this one to bed like a champion. Guy who landed on him is all done; I know for a fact that often times, the one who uses a rider for his landing gets it even worse than dude who acted as said landing. The two KTM kids in 3rd and 4th each got wracked up and hit the dirt hard, and each of them are doing the tell-tale “just got the wind knocked out of me and will never breathe again” crawl, but it could be their race to win if either of them can uncollapse their lungs.
I feel like it automatically qualifies you as an old guy to say “How does he just bounce up from that,” but honestly, it is all that I am thinking. Like are 16 year old kids just watching this and saying “Oh yeah, that’s part of the program,” or what? I mean, he took 100% of that impact to the side. The track delivered a body shot that would floor Mike Tyson and Herlings just gets up and carries on like he just tipped over in a corner.
On another note, I thought it was a little bit funny watching him tumble down the hill afterward. Like this crash lasted a solid 5 seconds longer than it should have, as little Jeffrey just gets smaller and smaller on the screen in the midst of his tumultuous downhill fiasco. It reminded me way too much of watching a fat guy slip at the top of a tall grass hill and make my day better with each roll his adult onset diabetes body takes.
Finally, why do you “production” people feel the need to put your stupid titling on videos like this? I know you are trying to build awareness for your brand, but this reflects absolutely nothing on what you can do beyond the fact that you can have a camera set up at a downhill and be lucky enough to catch a good crash on it. Go ahead and make a real edit and title the fuck out of it, but leave it off these crash videos even though they’ll get infinitely more views than your shitty edits. Read more »
Stupid. It’s all stupid. Like, how is most of this even possible? I have always thought that flatland BMX guys were like the single parents of the action sports world, in that what they do is hard as fuck but they get no love for it and wind up with some shithead kid with a meth problem.
Super late on this one but just watch it and contact ESPN with a threat or something if they don’t have BQ at X in LA. But, be polite about it so they don’t get too upset. Like “Hey ESPN, thanks for taking my call. Now, I don’t want to be too much of a bother, but if Brett Cue is not in Best Whip, I think I’m probably going to strap C4 to my whole body and come into your offices and whatever happens, happens. But you have a great day.” They cannot say no to that.
Legal Disclaimer: Don’t actually call in a threat to ESPN. That was a joke. You know, one of those things that people take too seriously.
If you’ve been missing all the X-Games stuff like me, then here’s a little gift for you – the only X event that is actually worth watching, in the highest of definitions (if it’s 1984), 240p. If you don’t speak nerd, that basically means that someone took a bunch of photos with a disposable Kodak and stitched them all together into a video. Nonetheless, it’s a series of monster whips for the fans to enjoy.
I will never stop declaring my undying hatred for the fan voting system in Best Whip, although I think Torronteras was one of the best (Pages won it in my opinion). But ESPN views this event as a sideshow, as an opportunity to engage fans while they kick back in their corporate big wig chairs and count stacks of money while they smoke cigars and run their hands up and down their suspenders. Nothing against Hanny or Twitch (Hansen’s whips were right up there in this one), but Best Whip should not be about how many instagram followers you have. That’s what I see, ESPN, that’s what I see. Eazy, out.
Not a bad video. Some wild angles and cuts. At points, I felt like I was at Tomorrowland, or having a seizure, or both. But I liked the video, and Webby is shredding harder than ever. I still maintain my claim that he top 5s Hangtown. Public school don’t give a fuck.
Also, what with the song and everything, I felt this was appropriateRead more »
I have not been posting K-Dub’s transfers lately, and that’s on me. I dropped the ball. It happens to the best of us. But what a way to get back into it, in the last two weeks that we will likely EVER see the Windham transfers. Look at the steeze factor, enough to shut down anyone on the track. The necessary turndown is a beautiful thing, especially when performed amidst the cavalcade of buttery style that is Kevin Windham.
Here’s some brain food to gnaw on: Every single one of these transfers is basically do or die, at minimum do or break your face and get internal bleeding or something. There were maybe a few when K-Dub was nursing injuries that were mellow, but for the most part, they are gnarly. Forget about the distance, let’s talk about hitting a giant lip from a skewed angle and landing the same way – case it and your are absolute fucking history, because if the case doesn’t break your ankles, the resulting stop-to-stop swap out is going to make your brain and other vital organs take a time out. And Windham has nailed every fucking one of them. He never rolls them (because he can’t), he just does them. I do not give a shit about results anymore. The BOAT: Baddest Of All Time. Read more »
This Doug Henry backflip video hit the net earlier this week, but for some reason it was uploaded to Facebook, presumably in a feeble yet sadistic attempt to make people cut themselves to ease the pain of using the Facebook video player. Luckily, one rogue Samaritan threw it up on the YouTube, so now BRO can give it to the fans.
Doug Henry is tough as shit. Obviously, he’s from New England. Everything we do up there is about being better than the rest of the country. And I know you all are about to argue that your region is better, so I meet you with this question: Where is Doug Henry from? Exactly. We’ll see you all from the top step of the podium at the Bad Ass Motherfucker World Championships. Read more »
