Hey Scott - I'm 30 years old and used to live in Utah, I've been to the old site and have walked around it. I have followed Rampage from the first year they did it when I was a senior in high school. I've been riding mountain bikes since 1996 and I'm not a hack... well I'm still a hack.

I just don't want the wood features to become a slippery slope and are required to hit to win (regardless of what the judges say). Also I'd hate it if riders felt that they needed to hit any of them to even podium. In addition I wouldn't like to see an increasing number of wood features be added year over year. I think this could funnel people to certain zones and limit creativity of line choice which from what I understand is the spirit of the event. Opinions not bitchiness. I'm very grateful for Rampage and everyone/everything that takes to put on a great event.

i understand the bummed out stance on having stunts out there, but w/o seeing the complete package, these features could be linking pieces of terrain that weren't accessible before. it may make for a better event in the long run w/o taking away from the big mountain aspect.

That was my concern as well. I don't have anything against the man made stuff, I just worry that its going to lead to alot of guys riding the same line like you said. When you put in a couple of massive features it becomes a case of everyone feeling they have to hit those and it turning into more of a course. What I've always loved is seeing these guys do big tricks like 360's on difficult, natural, and gnarly lines. Even though these features are huge its much easier to pull the big tricks on a wooden run in with a groomed landing.

The inclusion of kickers is good as it gives riders that slight boost, I think they got the balance right last time. The oakley gap was crazy difficult enough to send it even harder to trick and land.

I know its only a few images of the same structure but this is going to encourage all the slopestyle riders to ride the same line and win with another backflip combo.

Rampage is all about big mountain and riders riding creative lines on difficult terrain. less structures more creative ways down!!
