Yeh, I watched it and was slightly brown trousers time. If that hadn't of worked it might have been game over for Zink, although props to him for going for it. Have to say though, Mcgarry's was pretty much as bad as Zinks.

Good to see Brendog doing well, although they kept on calling him Brenclaw. His canyon gap had a wild landing, off camber and up a hill.

It was absolutely off the hook last night. I dont think I have ever used that phrase!! Every run was insane. gutted there were no second runs, but a part of me is glad I didnt see anyone kill themselves last night. thos drops and gaps are just totally insane. and the speeds are ridiculous. when they were landing I wonder what speeds they were doing from the sender and the canyon gap. Fair"claw" was wicked, so much style, but your never gonna win that with whips! however good! really wanted to see a better angle of mccaul (mc claw) dirt to dirt drop which they were saying was as big as the sender.

Cam zink and that insane kiwi were mindblowing. when he flipped the drop I was scared, christ knows what was going through his mind. And then when the kiwi flipped the canyon, that was incredible.

as a point of note did anyone else notice that Will White rode without bar ends in the end of his bars!! Not that safety is on the toip the top of priority lists but really!!

amazing event. but someone is going to get seriously seriously hurt, as if breaking femurs isnt getting seriously hurt.

amazing but i ant help but think at some stage there is going to be an ethical debate here as to when someone should say to these guys that someone is going to die, i am sure its not the guys at NBC!

There is that danger
Pilgrim said he was glad to be off the hill
You really have to be in the zone to play there
That's why I enjoyed lacondeguy's run so much as he was clearly comfortable

Something must have to go really wrong to break your femur as I guess thats a pretty big bone unlike a wrist. Good to hear he is back on his feet though.
