I click the button and nothing happens...but it was a bit of mashing of the refresh button to actually get the page to show. Crappy webpage.

it looks like it doesn't work...but at the end it works. try with another rider you like and you will see the number go up after a while.

Dimitri didn't follow the rules last year, it was clear you have to keep the camera in position and show the entire kiteloop. Hope this video does it! It looks like it shows enough kiteloops to me? I voted for him go Dimitri!

I'm pulling for Dimitri, too. I've already given him my vote. But I wish his video showed more landings, which are important according to the KOTA guidelines. I know D landed those tricks, but the video doesn't always show it. I hope he gets in. :thumb:

It would be interesting to see him there (he is not a top tier rider at all), but let's not kid ourselves, he wasn't treated unfairly. His video didn't fulfill the minimum requirements. As far as I remember it was way too long and he did not show any mega loops....or something like that. I am not going to look it up.

competition is tuff this year. Many megaloop boardoffs etc...I wonder why Dimitri isn't doing these...he is a great boardoff rider plus an excellent megalooper...

"Video clip can not exceed 120 seconds (2’,00”). We are not looking for long video clips, we want a short edit packed with plenty of extreme action."

his video clip is 165 seconds so i'd say that could be an issue?

also agreed with the other comment about few landings filmed.

Each filmed trick shown in the video clip must include the rider’s start, the execution and the landing (no landing=no score). It is much better if a clean landing is shown, as part of the jump, in the footage. If the landing is cut-off or removed it will probably reduce chances of consideration from the judges /committee.

i'd vote for him anyway, i'd love to see him in the final comp with the younger field :thumb:

says you can enter as many videos as you like so he still has time to get another one in b4 the deadline.
