That was a gnarly bail he had though I honestly think he might have been trying a quad flip I really hope he isnt seriously injured, hate to see that kind of stuff
I agree, the whole "spin to win" thing that most people do gets old. I thought the tricks Halldor was trying were more creative and like a breath of fresh air to the x games.

Were on the same page I have a feeling he is not even trying to win but rather trying to give the sport a breath of fresh air like you said.

But then again thats why the x games is generally aimed toward the casual fan not the riders rider type. Those triples are crowd pleasers and they wanna make money(though its still an insane trick that you gotta have balls to throw it not denying that).

Yea, I think so to. Yea those triples are insane its just so much hucking it and not as much steeze as some other tricks.

Loved Halldor's style on the slope style yesterday.

I was thinking the same thing about the skiing superpipe.

This is almost getting boring to be honest. Triple cork after triple cork. I want some variety.
