Surely he should have got top 3.
He killed it. Fast controled. Went for and pulled his banger.

Should have won.

Mattias run bored me as it has for a while

This is why flatland contests are a joke. Even though Mathias and Dominik are very impressive riders, in this contest Kevin pulled a lot of harder tricks and did a perfect run....

Shame on the judges.

He did a perfect run, but I find it disturbing that you actually think he did anything harder than Dominik.

Why is there even a need to re-watch the thing? By just glancing you can tell that Dominik's run was WAY more technical and difficult (and still nearly perfect).

Kevin is a really cool and nice guy! I like him...

But please this is not a pro level.
Not signature Riding and the tricks are not hard enough. Ok this run was really good but i think top 3 is to much!

Harder tricks?!
Matthias' hafcab whopper to peg manual is hard.
Dom's xfoot hicker jugglers and barspins are hard.
Dez's halfhicker full kickflip to halfpacker is hard.
Just to name a few...
But turbined steamrollers, hickers, crackpackers and time machines are not...
Kevin's barflip to crackpacker is VERY stylish, but its not even close to be as hard as any of the other guys switches. Same for his spinning no handed time machines. I really like his riding, he's a very good rider, and dude, he did an amazing perfect run! But you seem to be confused about what is hard and what is stylish.
I was there, I saw every single final run and I honestly think the judges did a good job overall and the results are pretty good the way they are.

I dont think it was any signature trick what placed him in 3 place. His overall riding was just better that any of the other guys below him. Chutchalerm's run was really good too, in my opinion it was very close to Dez's run. Also Guelo had a great run. I think Joris, Kevin, Alex and Guelo were REALLY close in points...

i agree,
But how about adams kun run,
Does anyone has any footage because i believe judging from his overall runs a disqualification is not in his habit ???

I guess you are right,i wasnt there and cant see the runs and from tv you cant understand,i am just dissapointed with what happened to flatland,i guess originality doesnt matter nowdays.
If back on 2004 at flatground there was a person that he would tell me that somebody will do the yammar switces in 8 years from now and will placed 3third at worlds i would laugh!anyway its boring for me to continue.i guess flatland is about fun,thats why i never give emphasis on what is happening to contests.can somebody upload william perez run?thanks

Adam did a lot of hard and original tricks at the qualification but couldnt land them, therefore he didn't qualify.

Actually, I think it does matter. The problem is that almost nobody brought something original during the finals. So, difficulty was the main subject to judge. At least that's how I see it, but I can be wrong...
