i was so ready to call BS on this...is this for real (are we sure this isnt a backflip), dechamp was just pulling it off last year at the bike battle on a hardtail minus the kool aid, that is hysterical.

damn, I left to early to find out who'd won, I thought for sure it'd be the kid in the suit on the hardtail, he was killing it! I rode saturday, and sunday, but didn't really compete, I endoed the last jump on dominion really hard on saturday, so that really sketched me out for the rest of the days. also, the other sick move I saw was some guy on a sinister splinter suicide no-handered road to nowhere twice, that was insaine. Great times

the suit kid placed 2nd. when he first crashed after attempting the back flip he bent his crank into his chainstay right into his back wheel. we took a rock and bent it back. its alum.. but he road it and was able to do a back flip at the end. he was also the only one that completed a 360. and definitely the highest i've ever seen anyone go on those jumps.

The kid in the suit may have won if his costume was better. He didnt land a 360 (or even try it?) in the finals. A lot of people seem to always overlook that the contest is judged on 50% costume and 50% riding. Georges costume definatly outweighed any possible gap between the two riders.

man that was the best time ive ever had at diablo, i was one of like 50 cows, but i still had fun in the contest, i finally got over to the other side of the mountain and hit the road to nowhere drop, man that thing is smooth. my contest runs werent good since half of one of my pedals were gone and i never really got comfortable, but i did come away with some free stuff and everyone at the contest threw down, it was sick

very true, I saw him land the 360, but I wasn't sure if it was in the finals or not, george definately had him on the costume aspect. My costume was wicked sad, I had a gorrilla mask duct taped atop my helmet, and a wicked small suit jacket. DHS, you're costume was awesome as well. I couldn't believe how many brooklyns were there, I definately had bike envy that whole weekend on my single speed imp that I put together the day before :)

I managed to dead sailer the first 2 tables and throw a moto whip on the third. I was just happy to clear them on my DH bike. :thumb:

The suit guy, George and a bunch of others were killing it. I couldn't believe how high they were getting. The suit kid needs a sponsor. Who is he?

The cow guys are a bunch of Lars copycats. :nuts: The Hooter's girls and the wet t-shirt costume were great. Those girls did ride the jump line during the contest. A bunch of guys wouldn't ride the line since they were affraid of looking retarded. Props to the girls.
