FMB judge application

First Drop:

Brett: Gainer / Brandon: sw 3 = Brett +1

Boner:

Brett: sw Whip / Brandon: Gainer = Brandon +.5

Left hip:

Brett: Down whip / Brandon: topside whip = 0

Stepup:

Brett: Truck / Brandon: double truck = Brandon +.5

Stepdown:

Brett: Flip bar / Brandon: Flip bar = 0 (tied at this point)

Right hip:

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.

Last jumps:

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

Last Quarter:

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.

I was walking to the Brixton so faded this afternoon to get food and coffee and heard someone yell my name. It was john with Sam and Megan at the London pub. Megan leaves for Copenhagen at 630 for a year. It was rad to have some beers before she took off. Creep the zine in her bag, priories.
