I gotta agree with the previous poster. That was the PKRA in 2004
Competition riding is never as fun to watch as a collection of freeride clips. Head to head heats can be like watching paint dry, where a freeride sessions can make much better spectating. As soon as you put it on a point scale its going to take away from the flow of great riding as the riders looking to win are gonna take all the chill smooth moves out of it and focus simply on setting up the big score maneuvers.
