Building at Rampage has been underway for a bit now, but as the show gets closer and the riders get their lines dialed, we're getting that nervous feeling again.


If Jordie feels sketchy, you know it's ludicrous. Claw and T-Mac's drop from last year

if your digging doesn't involve a harness, you're doing it wrong at rampage

conor mcfarlane taking a digger! i'm gonna ruffle feathers, but i hope this year the "you're tough, shake it off, keep riding" element is lessened. if a rider takes a head smack, they should be out. (not saying this is a head smack, but last year conor took a beating too many times IMO)
