New Zealand’s Kelly McGarry is on site for his fourth Rampage event, and he has unfinished business. McGarry came into Rampage 2012 with his sights set on sailing over the canyon gap.

Video: En Route to Rampage with Anthony Messere

10.08.2013 //

At just 17 years old, Anthony Messere is the youngest rider competing in the 2013 Red Bull Rampage. What Messere lacks in sheer years, however, he makes up for in skill and style. Rampage also has a history of favoring youth–could this be Messere’s big year?

10.04.2013 //

The world may have gravitated towards lighter, sleeker, sexier shoes (and Five Ten, itself, will soon offer that flavor of Impact), but I’m stuck on these clunky, sticky moon boots. They’ll rot off of my feet before I give them up. Here’s why…
