    Watching footage like this makes me wonder how we have not had any deaths related to competitions like this.

    Those were the days...when a Monster T fork wasn't a joke..Gully and C Mac were too young to drive..T Mac was barely on 26" wheels (and throwing steezy whips)..the BLM asked us to "tread lightly" at the Rampage site because of the delicate ecosystem (oops)..a helmet cam was wired to another camera in your backpack..backflips were like, "woah"..Canfield was riding a steel DH bike of his own design..Cedric Gracia introduced us to the "Dirty Sanchez"..Bender was a household name, even though nobody could recall him ever landing a huck

    Amazing. The rider names are classic Littermag.

    It's crazy how far the event has come in terms of progression. The cliff drop that won this event would barely register with the judges now, and the riders no longer look like they are just trying to survive.

    I was blown away to see guys shred that place this year and looked like they were enjoying it, playing around and just flowing through what is gnarly and massive terrain.
