You're being way too hard on yourself Kirill. To even be invited to rampage is an honour and you prove your qualification in the video above. You're a shredda! The biggest disappoint would be putting down the bike

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.

Having hiked the course last year, know that there is WAY more natural terrain to cover than the relatively little bit of wood you see here. Plus, the Icon Sender now sends riders 3 ways, rather than 2, which actually opens more options than last year. Personally I'm for it. The handful of wood additions allow the riders to focus more time on the rest of their lines. They only have 3 days to build this year with 3 helpers...

As a tall guy, I find it frustrating that they only offer XXL sizing in the more expensive carbon option.

I can't pony if I don't have it. Unemployment sucks. I actually have my own version of this drawn up using an old school Bullit swing arm. I need to get off my ass and make it.

Patent trolling? The man owns the patents and is defending himself against what he feels is theft from the largest bike company in the world. Good for him.

Sure the lawsuit (which it appears you likely didn't read) is the DW vesrsion of events as it should be, but one does not wisely take giant (and Trek) to court without a solid case. Patent trolling? Really? When was the last time you saw a US brand make a non-Specialized licensed FSR bike and get away with it? Do you think Giant would have let DW get away with the Sunday if they owned a patent that was even remotely similar? Love him or hate him, Dave brought some much needed innovation and a fresh perspective to mtb component and susp design that was immediately copied or used as 'inspiration' for new ideas. Glad to see he's going to get his day in court.

So a guy invents a completely new suspension system, files and gets patents on it, then some company steals his work and decides to string him along for years while pretending to negotiate around licensing the design, until the point where he's had it and decides to sue. And not only that, it happens AGAIN with ANOTHER design...and now somehow, this is actually his fault and he's a loser for complaining? You're saying he should NOT go after "everybody" who steals his work???
