As part of the Red Bull Signature Series, the most daring riders traveled to the backcountry of Utah to push their personal limits. Cameras captured unique views of the high drops and high drama that occur when the best freeride mountain bikers mix cliffs and tricks, and descend down 1,500 feet of vertical obstacles. This marks the first national television airing of Red Bull Rampage, 10 years after the first event was held for the core freeride mountain biking community.
Red Bull Rampage is hosted by Sal Masekela, who this week signed a multi-year extension with Red Bull Media House (RBMH) to be the voice of the Red Bull Signature Series and a diverse set of global sports properties and US television programs produced by the company.
