I voted for Brooks/Gatzka, but it really could have went to Sorge, too... he kills it, but I think I liked the team aspect of Brooks/Gatzka, I think that's what swayed me, the riding was top notch, and they had Clutch for their music... Clutch kicks ass... I mean it was hard! Their riding was VERY close, so I guess I let other 'stuff' decide for me...

weak sauce?

I just kept thinking about how Steve T should have been in the finals, too... bums me out.

Chump would have won...

Chump is still the champ with me.

it was easy - I voted for Sorge;

I felt his riding was more varied and interesting

I couldn't tell who was who in the combo - no idea - I think the pair would have been better if a) they had two riders that you could tell apart - clothes and helmets would be obvious -that they indentify from the start and in each shot you could recognize them and b) they rode different stuff or styles - like a stunt freerider hitting a bunch of shore stuff and the other guy killing Kamloops road gaps (like those two were) and dirt jumps

and Sorge had a cool little lifestyle clip - I thought the duo's was boring - a bunch of cliched stills (guy picking nose, friends flipping off camera, drinking beer etc.) and not very interesting talking - perfect pinkbike material -

but Sorge through his three videos just nailed it for me...

I voted for Sorge

I thought his riding style was a little more diverse, his bag of tricks were all solid (as were the the Brooks/Gatzka tandem) and his lifestyle video was way more interesting. Plus, the fact that the kid is 16 and totally slaying it sets him apart in my eyes. The other guys were good and rocked the big 'loops road-gaps, but in the end, Sorge rode different styles and was solid in all areas.

Can anybody tell me why there is a team as one of the finalists as opposed to a solo rider? All along I thought it was some dude with two last names or something. I guess I wasn't paying attention that closely.

Yes, reading and having your speakers on makes things a little less confusing....
