In the mid-2000's there was a definite aura of "The Rusty Effect". Pro riders were starting to feel like sitting around and playing video games all day might not be enough to keep up with this dude that was riding 4 and 5 times a day, everyday. Guys started to hit the gym, take it more seriously, and treat pro riding like a job rather than a free pass. Well, at least they tried. Rusty has been the best example of working hard to get to the top and set the bar for what it takes to be a professional. The double-up smashing can only be compared to a young Parks Bonifay where it didn't matter what was going on, they just wanted to hit them.
