KOTA is a shame !!

Leaving Dimitri out with the most votes and HUGE skills (besides his age) is a SCANDAL

And i m not saying this cause i am affiliated :angryfire: :angryfire:

If he rode for a big brand i m sure that he was going to be in.... :(

or they afraid not to kick the kids @sses with his small brand boosty kite :naughty: :rollgrin:

and his wrecked body :roll: :lol:

agreed, Dimitri should be in.

He does everything all riders do, plus more in this kind of winds.

True show.

KOTA listen! :!:

Well I guess it is an invitational publicity event. Its not a fair competition that all can enter.

They are doing it for the publicity and choosing individuals based on their target demographic.
At the end of the day the chief sponser needs to get their moneys worth or the event wont happen.

But it does beg the question. Is there a demand for an actual skilled based event or series.

I think the answer is yes.

It's red bull. They are into every action sport out there on the planet, but you know, your right, they are way off base on this one!

So what is the story here? I can see on the Red Bull site that he is doing really well on the votes. Has there been some sort of announcement that Dimitri won't get in?

Guys, Red Bull is a poor man's sponsor. Who cares what these third rate sponsors choose? We need to get into the Olympics to start generating real money.
