Brett: Gainer / Brandon: sw 3 = Brett +1
Brett: sw Whip / Brandon: Gainer = Brandon +.5
Brett: Down whip / Brandon: topside whip = 0
Brett: Truck / Brandon: double truck = Brandon +.5
Brett: Flip bar / Brandon: Flip bar = 0 (tied at this point)
Brett: sw truck / Brandon: double down whip = Brandon +.5
Debatable, but imo double down whip beats a sw 270 truck. Double down whip is a higher consequence and requires more commitment. You can bitch out of a truck and not toss the bars, you can’t half ass a double whip.
This is where it gets interesting, they both corked 7’d, regardless of the second jump being bigger, I believe they cancel each other out and now the 3 downwhip and the flip sw whip are judged side by side. Both have their perks, but I believe the flip sw whip is slightly better, but not but a whole lot. I would give the edge to Brett on this one especially since I hear Brandon slipped a pedal (but didn’t touch the ground)
Brett: Flip sw whip / Brandon: 3 down whip = Brett +.5
Brett: Flair / Brandon 5 bar: Brandon +.5
Both close, but imo a 5 bar has a lot more going on then a flair re: higher consequence
It was very close and both runs were next level. I feel like it could’ve gone either way. Obviously cleanliness comes into play as well as a few other things. FMB needs a consistent scoring system based off tricks that are being done these days. I’m reluctant to reveal my system that I think would benefit both riders, judges and the crowd. FMB GET AT ME.
