I Don’t Understand – Dirt Jumping

Posted by pieter on Wednesday November 13 2013


I don’t understand why there are so many dirt jump stops on the FMB tour when BMX goes bigger and harder.

    the same could be said for Jesus vs God

      Neither FMB or BMX exist?

    i concur.

    So because BMXers go “bigger and harder”, mountain bikers shouldn’t dirt jump? Bizarre statement. Sounds like someone’s got their knickers in a twist about big bikes! Can’t we just all get along?!

      i don’t think hes saying they shouldn’t jump, just that theres a lot of DJ stops on the tour… like a lot… does the FMB need more slope/big mountain events?

      Not having a go at dirt jumpers, getting along, or fun. Just a comment on the professional level of the sport.

      Besides; I where briefs not knickers.

    I see nothing in this video that I haven’t seen pulled on a DJMTB – not sure what you mean by bigger/harder comment. Also, out of the twenty events rated silver or above on the FMB tour, there are only four dirt jump events. I hardly think that counts as ‘so many’ does it?

    If anything I think the only Big Mountain event on the FMB tour (Rampage) shouldn’t be an included stop – it’s such an odd one out, and definitely big enough to be run on it’s own.
