Course looks rad. I was a bit worried after seeing Neko's preview the other day.

Should be a good race. Some hot nasty speed up top but where is the finish line booter?

Pumped for this. Excited to see what you guys think of the 429 trail and the smuggler. Also, glad you guys tried to keep the average price down this year.

Hopefully these nice folks change the name of the company right quick cause that is an awful name. Anyways I wish them the best of luck but I really hope they get rid of that terrible name. Carry on.

Liked a comment on the item The 5 Top Scoring Runs From Rampage 2015 10/20/2015 12:10 PM

Sorge's run was sick, but I think they scored him higher so that the same line wouldn't win two years in a row.

Zink's line had more raw gnar than any top 5, and he tricked two massive hits. I was literally cringing watching his run. All I can think is that the judges couldn't see him very well.

These were the best two posts I have seen on this topic so far.
IMO accountability is the main issue here. It seems to me that in our fine country people are quick to place blame everywhere other than themselves for their own actions. I think there needs to be more focus on not only the riders accountability but also the people that were assisting them aka. their build teams. The builders helped design each riders line and at any point they probably could have taken a step back and spoken up and made it known that they didn't feel the line was safe or that it was a bit too risky.
I also think the way this unfortunate accident was dealt with immediately after was a bit distasteful by using the rampage hashtag. Seems like Cam was all for rampage until he wasn't.
Also, I can't help but think if Brandon would have still written the opinion piece if his buddy didn't have the bad crash that he did.
Lastly, I wish Paul all the best and hope he has a quick recovery.

I agree with Fireant. Yes, part of this blame lies with Red Bull. They're going to be the largest martyr. They're the main sponsor who likely kept this event alive. Another part of the blame has to go to the riders' sponsors. I'm certain they're pushing...more

Seeing something like this happen to a rider is a tragedy.. no one ever wants to see their hero's or friends hurt especially doing something that they love.

I don't think putting all the blame on red bull is right though, but having a media black out...more

Will Olsen was killed in early August at the Crested Butte EWS. There was much sadness and compassion expressed throughout the MTB community, but not the outrage that is following Bas' injury. What's the difference? More money? Hardly. Lower risk?...more

When bad things happen the first thing is to find someone or something to blame. Many fingers point at Redbull, after all they are organizing this gladiator show and they will keep doing it as long as its profitable and they are legally allowed to do...more

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...more

"Brown Pow" = a shart. It's obviously brown, and POW! The next hour of your life just got dictated by this outwardly insignificant event.

This is what happens when people who have made a career on overly dramatic, cheesy ski flicks, touch mountain biking. Hey, let's make biking like skiing, we...more

Really? A game changer? I feel like having two separate tubes running over your shoulders is a little ridiculous.

Read the description on the Kickstarter. Not to be all Charlie Murphy but I'm not so sure about this

Hopefully part of that Kickstarter money will be used to come up with a better name than ShockWiz.
