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 »
Rider: James Stewart
Location: Muddy Creek
Photographer: Some TV camera guy whose career can only go downhill from here
I hope everyone saw this while watching Muddy Creek and had the same reaction that I did. It just made me feel good, like seeing a dog safely cross a busy road or seeing a cat fail to do that. Just knowing that James still can do it, he still has it in him, warms my allegedly cold heart. This is a brief yet glorious glimpse at the Stewart of old, the most talented rider ever in this sport. Yes, I say that without hesitation, the most talented rider ever. Villopoto cannot do that. He can beat the rider who can do that, but he cannot do THAT. He’s pretty much scraping side panel at 3rd gear wide open (possibly 4th, I wasn’t paying attention). Might have qualified in 17th, but still the best rider on the planet. If that does not make sense to you, you either don’t ride or hate black people. One or the other. Or both, if you’re from the South.
Final Rating: 2/2. This is the type of scrub with whom you will actually leave the lights on. And make breakfast in the morning.
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 »
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 »
With what a shitty week it has been in America, we need some whips to get the ball rolling again. And country music. Because ‘Merica, that’s why. BRO will be back in the swing of things shortly BROs. The NFG lifestyle applies to websites, as well.
By the way, Brett did not get invited to Best Whip Brazil as far as I know. Text in BQ365 anyway. Those fuckers will learn.
Just a bunch of retarded whips. The first one made me sad that I was not doing exactly that right now. Just all “Oh, hey, internet. How goes it? Oh excuse me, I have to bring this whip back.” Full retard, BRO. At least I nailed the screen grab.
