Chase deserved to win fold, but at the same time he didn't need to win gold to prove he's good

The fact that they still called it park, and like he said that the event was for bowl shredders and in a way favored Chase, I don't like it. Chase is hands down THE smoothest and best bowl shredder around. But if you take him and a bunch of true park riders into a contest called bmx park that turned out to be judged not for a park style, you're going to have controversy. I think x games failed here. Kinda ticked too. I feel bezanson got robbed on what it SHOULD have been but wasn't. But for the way judging turned out to be, Chase won, no argument. /rant

I'd rather see style over tricks.

If they were basing it on style why not tell all the riders exactly that, since they aren't really looking for tricks. What's the point....

Unless they did tell the riders, then apologies smile

I think they showed the riders what they where looking for during qualifications. Chase scored high due to shredding the bowl riding smooth and clean and landing everything.

The riders who went out every run doing the same tricks in the exact same style and landing exactly the same are just showing how they aren't diverse riders and also sort of dumb. Instead of stopping and seeing how/why chase was beating them on the day and didn't change there styles or at least out look on their runs they pidgeon holes them selves into the lower placing on the podium.

Sure some riders had some dope lines and rad tricks (that fufuanu/abubaca which ever one it was and done by whoever) was rad as fuck but that was one trick in an entire run.

Chase was smooth and dominated. Clicked as fuck turndown at height over a flair whip bar any day of the week

Right before this year's x-games chase has been getting a LOT of attention, maybe the changed it last minute to bowl contest for that reason, but I don't know, gary young goes high and fast with stylish tricks and drew's tricks were done with grace, no park rat trying hard style there.

All the older vital members know Chase was, is, and always will be my favorite rider, but I think Austin pushed for chase to win. At least the judges said Drew would have been first had he done cleanly in all his runs, that just helps to make it have more sense.

I think this brought BMX back to what its really all about. Its not always about who can "HUCK" the most tricks in 2 min. If anything, I think Daniel should of atleast got 2nd. Drew's run was just a sloppy mess then at the end he was like "you see that shit, thats how its done" kind of cocky attitude. Any true BMXer will watch those runs and know why Chase took the gold. If you think otherwise, then you should question your own devotion to the sport that is BMX.
