I think it's incredibly hard for them (or anyone, for that matter) to get the general public excited about flatland which, unfortunately, is the main goal of X-Games.

I'm glad dirt is back.

Crazy cause when I'm watching bike videos with my friends and someone pops by and watches most people who don't ride find flatland in the props videos the craziest to watch........I think it's hard to put flatland on tv In a contest form because some of those tricks take so long to get done

What would be really sick is if for the dirt, they went to 9th or Eastside, instead of building a generic 6 pack.

Not true. Matt Wilhelm was on like Americas got talent or something, riding flatland and the crowd was pretty stoked. Granted it was in the dark with lights on his bike but still hahah

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

but that's different. It's not nearly as interesting to most people whenever there are 20 people doing it for 30 minutes at a time. Seeing it once is awesome. seeing multiple people do similiar stuff isn't.

Mountain biking is awesome and bmxers are usually good at it because there used to being on less stable bikes so 26 inchers are easy to us. My dad just got me a 6 inch travel enduro frame for an early birthday present I can't wait to build it up smile

From my experience with Texas summers, I'd guess mid 90's

Yeeeeaaaaahh...... That's about as similar to a flatland contest as playing Tony Hawk's video game is to watching a skate vert contest.

Not the same thing at all.

I hate X games now, I've been to everyone for about the past 7or 8 years and now they moved it . good memories at the x games though meeting terry adams, matt hoffman (awsome person talked to him for like half an hour), meeting ty morrow (wasnt actually at the x games but i caught uo with him ridding one day and talked to him). Met countless awsome people there and some of my favorite riders/skaters/driver
