SRAM/RockShox athletes ready for Rampage

Athletes look to continue success after solid showings at Red Bull Joyride and Red Bull District Ride

Press Release

The RedBull Rampage is unlike any other event on the FMB calendar. The event is the true testament for those who want to reign supreme as the best big-mountain Freerider. Pulling the most daring and difficult tricks or going for the biggest air won’t win it alone. Riders are also judged on line choice, flow, style and execution throughout the run. With the continual acceleration in trick difficulty and amplitude, it’s almost impossible to guess what the likes of Strait, Semenuk, Zink or Agassiz will deliver this year. Photo by Adrian Marcoux.

Many of the most prominent moments in Freeride Mountain Biking were forged in history at the RedBull Rampage. Kyle Strait's winning run in 2013, smooth and faultless with fearless style throughout the entire descent was well deserving of the win. Cam Zink’s monster backflip from the Oakley sender, undoubtedly one of the most mind blowing tricks ever landed on a mountain bike. So ground breaking that it was heard around the world on global news networks, setting an all new precedence and progressing the the sport further and faster than ever. Photo by Adrian Marcoux.
