    Just my 2 cents…I don’t think slopestyle is becoming too dangerous. It’s always been dangerous. Sure, they can try to design the course a bit safer and that’s always the case but I think the main reason riders are getting hurt more is because most don’t have access to large courses like these to practice on. If we could all practice on courses like they have at Crankworx on a regular basis, the injuries will go down. Most practice on much smaller features and have to step it up and throw the same tricks on a much bigger jump in competition. The familiarity just isn’t there and thus, the lines aren’t dialed. It will inevitably lead to more crashes.
