Why was he not in Ride's 20 most influential riders of the last 20 years?

Because they had to leave a spot open for Garrett Reynolds.

You would like him if he was an alligator.

thats oppo for him as well

that is regular for him, oppo for a non goofy tabler

"I can guarantee you with certainty that steven's riding style will not turn into the new fad"

i find that sentence ironic because its true noone has really ever come close to riding like hamdog, but there were quite a few 19" frames popped up when he was at his peak in terms of getting coverage

that was the past, he is talking about the future. that is why the statement: "I can guarantee you with certainty that steven's riding style will not turn into the new fad" is probably true.

him and joe cox in my most humble opinion.

though looking back and then looking at now it's amazing to see how far it has all come. yet i still think the way they used them/linked them was exemplary.

If we're talking about who inspired more people to nose manual I'd nominate Bob Scerbo, I remember him being the only dude I'd seen do a clean brakeless nose manual for a long time.

I can't find the first empire dvd online, but that had from my knowledge the longest brakeless hop up nose manny I'd ever seen from Ham dog.

He does a super slow one in it.

Don't forget that stuff like this came out before that Scerbo section

I'd really argue otherwise for Scerbo owning that position.

For me, it's less of a matter of who did them first and more of a matter of who people paid more attention to for doing them. Scerbo has always avoided the spotlight and Steven was the rider to watch for a moment. His section in The Day is Over led to his section in Can I Eat? which lead to his going on 2 (I think?) Road Fools trips and the Orchid video trip, all of which occurred in the span of something like two years. That is a lot of coverage in a pre-web video era.
He wasn't the first to do lengthy brakeless nose manuals, but I think he was the first to really inspire a wide range of riders to start trying.

Fair point on Scerbo. Either way, all legends.

A.K, even with his sorded past, I can deal with...

But the love of Kerley has gotten out of hand. I don't see the appeal, sure it's all highly skilled. But, bitch cranking, stem humping, manualling and barspinning in and out of EVERYTHING is kind of boring.
