I'll bite? It's not a crime to not saying something yano...
So effectively you're telling me, that carthy, vincent and giles can just go ahead and compete in the worlds on Full sus bikes? We might aswell not sell any trials specific stuff if it just "makes it easier" but not essential. and can all be done on a full sus. I've watched this video a couple of times now and you can't say he's really doing anything trials related (I'm even talking about natural/comp style, TGS, spinny stuff) - He does the occasional bunnyhop and he hopped on the back wheel a few times. Where were the gaps to front, the hooks, the sidehops, the taps, sidehops to rear, front to backs etc etc. These are just basic compound trials movements and I don't even care what bike your doing it on, I'm just talking about the basics.
I understand your point/mindset Ali and that your trying to broaden the sport into a bigger range of stuff and it being able to be done on other styles of bikes. But you can't just disregard the very basics and be like "Well he used to be a proper trials riders years ago and is now doing something sort of similar on a full sus so it's trials". We might aswell not even have a sport known as "trials" and just say "well f**k it we'll do whatever we want and call it trials"
Or it's like saying "Ill do BMX but because I'm doing something that has some form of trials element so i'll class it as trials"
I would have no issue with any of these videos or anything if there were atleast the basics in here but there isn't. This was an XC/Downhill video plain and simple.
If what your saying is true Ali, you used to be fairly good at TGS, go do me some 45" + sidehops, taps, hooks etc. Gaps to fronts on rails etc on a full sus. I bet you even Damon, carthy, vincent etc couldnt do it.
