It was on his insta story, check it here: https://www.instagram.com/stories/janek_grzegorzewski/
is it only me thinking it was quite a stupid decision - "to try something new" during the landing on paraschute right before the competition

I am a big Janek fan and don't want to think/talk about it :roll:

Oh, come on.
Janek would have provided a big show and was my favorite.
Don’t want to see the same guy winning again.

Give extra points for new tricks to make it more exciting!

Wishing Janek a speedy recovery and to kick ass in 2021

i don't see any exciting changes -
Me neither, it just seems to be getting a bit softer each year with the push towards bows and straps... the opposite to what RBs all about imo. Although i'm sure Hadlow, Richman, Whaley etc will still be going hardcore.

Same here....such a joy to watch him when he is on fire. And doing new stuff too, i mean that boogieloop boardoff of his and his 10-ish rotations still need to be matched by Kevin and all others in style...

He's like, well...., kinda young Toby but then WITH all the loop skills. :lol:

Get well soon Janek!

I give him the loop skills ! The rest? Not yet 😉
But for sure someone who can takes things even further than me one day...with or without loops.

Soooo much more possible. If you stay hooked that is 😘

Laser pointer that reads distance- connected to a camera.
It could accurately give you a launch mark, then lay over a 40m graph..

It's great to see the women going hard but is she truly better than other high profile riders that missed out ?
Politics suck as usual.
