Molo
fairly close, however for the overall flow and the variety of tricks, Molo takes this one.

Ondo and Martin, thanks for inviting me to be a part of this.

I'm a little late, just catching up now. It looks like the first battle is decided, so no need for my vote there. What a good battle though, both Ederson Paulo and Dustyn Alt shredded. Stoked.

I'm going to watch the next battle now, I'll be right back.

I like how freshmaker411 started his run, the casual one-hand steam turbine link was dope.

I also was impressed by how molo started his run with a huge banger and linked front to back wheel very smoothly.

Overall, for this battle I think molo takes the win.

TAKU- amazing style, lovin' the spinning 5's

moya- impressive range, the variety of moves and technical difficulty is pro level. Some creativity as well! Frameplant Hang5, right on.

In my opinion moya is moving on to the next round.

Man this is really really close but I'm going to have to go with TAKU. His style was just more original.

sh*t, this is hard.

On one hand, you have some seriously wild originality from Taku. Moya was original too, but it was original riding in the form of switches, but not really "conceptual" originality. I can think of riders doing similar things to moya, but not so much from Taku. So Taku wins in originality.

Difficulty, I'd say both were about even. I think Moya's jump from crackpacker to cliffhanger is nice, but honestly I think Taku's backwards steamroller jump to wheelchair is just as difficult (I've done steamroller jump to spinning cliff, and crackpacker isn't that far off, and I've also done Taku's jump although I used brakes). So, tie here.

Variety, Moya is going to win a bit by a hair here, but I don't think it's enough to offset the factor of originality of Taku. Figure Moya wins by some arbitrary number like, 5 points, but Taku gets 10 points for originality. Hope that makes sense?

Overall, I have to give my vote to Taku. It was a super close battle, but I feel as though Moya's stuff is right on the cusp of being something really unique, while Taku is already there.

Very tight battle but I have to go with TAKU.

His stuff might look a bit repetitive but, on the other hand, his overall style is more original than Moya's (who did some interesting switches though). As for difficulty, I'd say TAKU wins here by the slightest margin possible, especially thanks to that brakeless jump to crackpacker.

Anyway, great riding from both of you guys.

this is just me, but all i saw from taku was two spinning hang-5s, switchhanded steamroller variations and the awesome crackpacker at the end... what is it with everyone and switchhanded steamrollers? because although taku's riding looked better, it is much easier to tell that Moya was doing different tricks, and i had to replay taku alot to find out he was doing more than just steamroller variations... :/ i'm a noob rider, so that could just be me

.. or mabye i'm just sick of seeing switchhanded steamrollers most of the time lol

taku was a better rider in this vid to me, but only because his riding looks aesthetically better and longer links. but Moya looks like he has alot more variety  :huh:
