    F'ing awesome event to get to watch/shoot. It was almost non stop action, especially in the warm up session. It was huge trains of dudes coming down one after another. Obviously some sick whips were seen but there was also a guy riding in sandals and a random dude nearly sticking a back flip on a DH bike.

    Land on ya dick? I don't get it. Must be an aussie thing.


    Check out his new 5.10s. I overheard him saying something along the lines of "I wasn't even planning on riding today".

    The crowd went crazy when that dude threw the back flip. No one expected it, I don't think that guy was even in the comp any more at that point. I barely had time to get my camera up and in front of my face.

    No whip will ever top Danny's from World Champs last year.

    (See how fun "best ever" can be?)
