COB, who got robbed?
« on: August 03, 2012, 05:12:23 AM »
How did he get invited? Someone explain to me how he's going to hang against any of those guys with bad versions of old Matthias combos and a blender? Someone slipped someone some cash or Effraim had a temper tantrum and begged them to send him and invite because he's really not that good.

If you really want to know the answer, then ask someone who is responsible for choosing the riders.
If not, this is just hatin'

Bert is a good rider and a friend, and I don't care how and why, I just wish him the best in COB!

lol, I couldn't help but chuckle every time the automatic door opened as he rode by.

He's smooth though.  Great vid.

For anyone that's kept up with the social media vs. global flat thread, you find the timing of this post rather ironic?

Just ride better than him, come to the Circle of Balance and tell him your opinion.
Bert is a really good rider, better than 90% of you guys.

I am digging that video.  Bert has some stuff that is all his own.  Good luck at Circle of Balance Bert! Not like you need luck, you have skills and that is better.

There's a pretty big difference between saying someone is "not that good" versus saying they're "not that original", and even then, unless a rider is at the same level of who he/she is passing judgement on, they've got no reason to be saying anything at all. I'm thinking Rad might've mixed those two up in this case... lol.  In any event, he's in COB, so he's got nothing to prove to anyone but himself that he deserves to be there. His video rips (I never knew his name before, but always thought his riding in the Too Small Bikes vids was excellent), so don't put it past him that he's got some serious stuff up his sleeves.

I'm actually glad that Rad255 brought him up because I wasn't too familiar with him until now. The guy not only shreds, but also has some pretty original stuff going on.

The guy not only shreds, but also has some pretty original stuff going on.

Not to forget that his hair is definitely the most stylish.
The following is the truth.  The preceeding is a lie.
