"ooh an american contest......."with Webby-uk,Mike Miller-uk,Ben Hennon-uk and Harry Main-uk.
this guy is the best rider all round i have ever seen in the flesh
no. in america!
look at steve maccan on vert, marked down. took jamie years to break through over there,
That decade 3 is sublime and some of the flip variations are just nuts. The guy has power with a capital P. It was a real shame most of his runs in the Dew tour were at the commercial break. He's one of the many guys pushing the sport, no doubt.
As for Bestwick, best vert rider ever (even the Condor would agree with that). Took him a while to break the US, mostly because Mirra was the king. With progressive sports like this, I find the best of today are always better than the best of yesterday. It's usually easier for them though, as the predecessors invented a lot of the tricks. Even back in Hoffman's prime, I prefered Jay Miron.
The judging thing is weird though. Dhers, who seems to win nearly every contest doesn't do it for me. Too precise, makes it look too easy. I'd take Wade over Dhers anyday - Stuntman Vs Robot? Stuntman WINS!
jamie is amazing to ride with but matts the best. pushed boundaries and invented more
They're both amazing. I've seen Hoffman ride a few times, he's called the condor for a reason, he seems to get so much higher with so little effort, plus he knows how to put on a show, but... Bestwick is the best vert rider ever in my opinion. He and Mirra pushed the tricks to new heights of ridiculousness.
