the only reason he won was because he could consistently do lots of tiny tricks where h moved about 2m from his take off point.

I don't care why he won. If he won is because he deserved. For sure Andy need some time to adapt to the new rules how Langeree when he came back. The point for me is that with more champions in the tour more fun for us. It would be boring if always Youri and Alex are fighting for the championship. I hope Andy, and Aaron also, come back and bring us huge show.

Hey Bob10 you are a f*&King cock!

taking the Pro Aussie attitude out of it, how many of the Top riders were injured/out of commission the year that Andy won his title?

you can only beat who is in front of you so fair play to the lad lets just not pretend he beat AH, Kevin and Youri when they were all on song shall we?

as a side note aboyut support he got from Slingy, he won his title he got his pro model board (mayhem) and then at least from a Euro perspective never rode the damn thing, even in his come back vid he hashed together old footage of him on old gear rather than being on the latest gear, what was all that about?

First of all, I'm Spanish. I think Andy beat Youri and Alex, so he has some credit. As I said few threads ago, I only want more champions in the competition how Formula 1 last year. Is bad think like this? I don't know if Andy could beat Youri and Alex or Aaron but personally I prefer riders who are in the tour than the others that only make videos.

P.D I only want more spectacle!! :D

Andy kicks ass !
Everyone except one guy thinks so.

BTW, now that Andy is riding the same board as I am riding he's going to get even better :lol:
Xenon ROCKS :!: :!:
