awesome shot. this area is so cool because its fairly easy to drive out to when you figure out the BLM roads. However the best part is Green River is one of the best places in the country to see the stars at night. Its incredible.

Just a weird name. I think its most accurate to call this a 1080 cashroll as a normal cashroll is already a 720 degree rotation on a really odd and similar axis to the last two rotations he tosses on this. There's no flip in there but he legit spins 3 times making it a 10. Its so nuts.

Its all legit but yeah they had to build lips for those hits. They most likely used those gas powered winches for the tow-in. Skiers have been using it for urban for a couple seasons now and they can tow you in at near 50 mph if needed. At higher speed, no need for anything but skis and a shitton of skill.

Yup, let's just ignore the fact that his building team helped create parts of this line and helping out with other rider's lines the last time around. Buying into silly internet BS like a silly fanboy is more fun anyways.

C138_zinkquence

it amazes me how many people are upset stating Semenuk got robbed and yet nothing about Zink... Goes to show people expect more of a slopestyle run than an actual big mountain line with gnarly, huge tricks... ya know, what Rampage has always been about.

Added a comment about feature Opinion: When Does Risk Outweigh the Reward? How Red Bull Rampage Changed Our Perspective 10/19/2015 8:18 AM
C50_greenriver4.6.2013

Agreed with most written aside from the insurance bit. The Rampage falls under the FMB Tour, in which riders cannot compete without insurance. In no other sport, action or otherwise, is an event's title sponsor responsible for providing insurance to the competitors. That's not their responsibility and it never was. All they do is provide a venue at which these riders can compete if they want to. There's a lot of misplaced anger about that and if anything, be pissed at the rider's SPONSORS for the lack of travel cash or providing insurance/medical coverage.

Also here's some perspective... The FWT, a world tour big mountain circuit for skiers/snowboarders. Over the years multiple people have died competing or being part of this event. There are no massive outcries about who should be paying who, how much, etc. because everyone understands its an inherently dangerous comp. with little extrinsic rewards. You can either compete or not, its ultimately up to the rider and what line the rider risks.

scriz- You're not watching the same runs as the rest of us then, haha. Andreau's run definitely deserves a higher place. Just that upper hip alone where he flat 450s it and Aggy just did a whip... same with the lowest hit where Andreau backied it and again, Aggy just styled it out.

ZINK SHOULD HAVE WON! BIG GNARLY LINE, BIG GNARLY TRICKS. Rampage is about that, not one big drop and a groomed run the rest of the way. It was original also... Semenuk's was insane, same with Andreau's as well so who the hell knows.

Or you could use google, you lazy rest-of-the-world pricks. Venue is in US, US sizing. MERICA!!! And what sspomer said. At the end of the day be thankful someone like Vitalmtb went out there and physically measured the features. This is awesome and thank you for taking the time to do this. I've always been curious.
