Kirill Benderoni on Never Riding 'Real' Mountains and Coming to Red Bull Rampage 10

Remember Benderoni? Of course you do. How could you not? Well the famed hardtail huckster has landed himself an invite to Red Bull Rampage. There's one catch. Up until a few days ago, he had never ridden a downhill bike, nor had he ridden any 'real' mountains. What does he have to say about that? "Watch and see..."

Brace yourself, Kirill, it's going to be a wild ride!

    Never ridden a DH bike/trail? Why not start with the most out of this world terrain for your first go at it!

    This moron is gonna get himself killed.

    Bringing a bike he's never ridden before on terrain that he's never ridden anything close to? It'll be interesting to see but I think he'll realize pretty quickly of how intense and different it is here. I'm hoping he does well but from what other competitors have said over the years, the hopes aren't too high for an outstanding performance, haha. Tight they gave him an invite though, I cannot imagine how excited he is.

    Really??? DIAMOND LEVEL EVENT! I feel as though this is more of a marketing gimik then anything, Looks like a great rider and all just not what i would expect for a Rampage Invite. Give a spot to Jeremy Hottringer if anyone. o
