If enough people wish that the rule be revoked it’ll be eliminated. I just think that it’s fair to host a varial roll competition where you should land a varial roll, not a varial roll-outside roll imo.
I got suprisingly close. I can consistantly hop to the other side of the crank, the hard part is getting my hands to switch to the other side of the saddle, and getting the crank to roll. I’ve found that actually hopping slightly to the other crank is easier than just stepping on it. Its a lot less strain on my left ankle (weak ankle), and it gives momentum to roll the crank.
The closest i’ve gotten is the crank to roll the full way, but I lost hand positioning and balance. I was tilted off balance for the whole roll :\
I’ve been getting to the point where you have to do the body varial for 2 days now, I just always fall when I get there. I try pushing the first half, pausing for a little and then quickly doing a fast transfer of my body to the other side, transferring your body momentum and making the last part of the crank roll (If that makes any sense).
