Athlete List Unveiled for Rampage 2016

Field of 21 is locked for the 11th edition of Red Bull Rampage

From Red Bull:
After 10 editions of historic competition, Red Bull Rampage has become the truest test of skill and mental toughness on a mountain bike. Touted as one of the most intense events in the world, featuring the world’s best athletes and set in one of the most demanding locations on the planet, the event has become the most coveted title in Freeride Mountain Biking.

The list of 21 world-class athletes competing in this year’s Red Bull Rampage has been set. The roster of riders slated to
compete is comprised of both 12 pre-qualified and 9 invited “Wild-Card” athletes. There will also be 5 alternates who will be called upon to compete if a rider is unable to attend the event.

The pre-qualified riders earned their right to compete in 2016 by finishing in the top 12 in last year’s event. The remaining 9 riders who make up the “Wild-Card” athletes were chosen and invited based on the following criteria:
• Past Red Bull Rampage results
• Results from similar big-bike events
• Proven skill on a mountain bike
• Current video segments

Past athletes and community leaders Cameron McCaul, Aaron Chase, Randy Spangler, Nico Vink, and Todd Barber comprised the Rampage selection committee who chose the “Wild-Card” athletes. The 11th Edition of Red Bull Rampage will take place at a new location near Virgin, UT on October 14th. The new venue and updated event format offer up a blank canvas for the elite group of 21 athletes to create their own personal line down the mountain in one of the biggest tests of skill and nerve in the world.
