I don't know anything about the X-Fighters but that's a pretty big brush to be tarring every sport they're involved in considering there are probably very few if any of the same people involved in organizing, designing and creating the two completely seperate events in two entirely different disciplines.

Also, I think with this event like many events in the snow sport scene the scoring will be peer based with fellow competitors scoring the runs especially in an event like this which has many of the godfathers of the sport competing. I think it would be incredibly difficult if not impossible for a fixed result to go un-noticed.

Yes Red Bull are a very corporate sponsor, look at the super pipe purpose built for Shaun Whites Olympic training which some have argued 'bought' him Gold in Vancouver; but they also have the means to allow people like Travis Rice to progress the sport and if this event is anything to go by actually create a new discipline and format which brings the men in from the wilds of the backcountry and the boys out from the competition scene and bring them together.

I'm confident that we all know, the benefits to individual and industry progression that working with other people with different backgrounds, experiences and areas of expertise brings.

Anyway, enough of that, here's Brit Billy Morgan steezing out the first ever TRIPLE RODEO!!

I dont make statements like that without a good reason, I used to love the X fighters, was even going to go to the live England one in Battersea till the farce.

I cant remember who won that year but he was blatantly "given" it, the faces of the two competitors even said it all! lost all interest in major sporting events after that, of any kind, theres too many shadows over too many sports these days. Not really a case of tarring all with that brush, but losing faith in fair competition, and thats to be understandable in this day and age given the scandals, steroid and drug abuse in sports.

dont know about snowboarding, just saying how I feel about sport in general, but that x fighter Redbull event was the start of it for me.
