Rampage 2021

With the 2021 edition of the ultimate freeride event just two weeks away, it's time to start getting hyped! We've got a new venue to look forward this year as well, so we are even more fired up than usual for this one, especially since COVID deprived us of our favorite October entertainment last year as well.

Sadly, we have to start this thread with a bit of a downer as Brendan Fairclough just announced he has had to pull out - he has been undergoing multiple surgeries to clean out and seal up the massive leg injury he sustained at the Lenzerheide World Cup, after it got re-infected during initial rehab. Healing vibes to Brendog and good luck to the Rampage athletes.

Current list of alternates (we don't know who will fill Brendan's spot at the moment):
Thomas Genon
Emil Johansson
Reed Boggs
DJ Brandt
Antoine Bizet.

2018 event winner Brett Rheeder has withdrawn, unable to recover in time from an injury sustained just a couple of weeks ago now. We'll update you once we know who is taking his place.

Brage is already looking so comfortable out there and going huge... can't wait to see what he cooks up for the show.

apparently permits were not obtained in time, so it will not be a new venue. riders voted to go back to the '16/'17 site.

We're gutted that we won't be seeing Brendog at Rampage this year, but we can at least drool over his helmet:

It doesn't matter that the event hasn't even started yet, Brage is already on the rampage...

Looks like Semenuk has a single crown set up on his bike, so I think we can expect a bar spin at the very least.

Personally I'm hoping for a huge tailwhip.

sounds like its one of 2 bikes he's built up for the event. based on how the statements were phrased, i'm under the assumption the other bike has a boxxer.

Tailwhipping the right drop is at minimum best trick. Wonder what Brandon has in store.

I've always dreamt of seeing a rider do a tail whip on a triple clamp bike. Hand to hand style like some riders do bar spins. Kick it to lock, guide it around, grab the other grip and stomp it. it's always seemed simple enough in my mind.

a straight whip by itself may not be enough. especially considering the whip combos he's capable of.

The shovels have hit the dirt!

unpopular opinion, but would love to see fresher riders than kyle strait

I mean, let me guess, he's gonna pull off sui no hander off a drop and thats about it

Lol last time I believe he added a backflip and maaaybe a 360, but you're probably right and I think the event organizers like it that way. I remember seeing an interview with them about why guys like Silva/Tom van Steenbergen weren't invited earlier, and they were like, we have to balance bringing crazy young talent out here with a level of maturity so that someone doesn't actually die. They even admitted that van steezeburger was probably brought in a year or two too soon because of the massive crashes he sustained. And having that veteran presence of guys like Strait consistently go huge (and he does) but be calculated is an important part of it. My guess is his years out here are numbered.

Counter point: He is also most likely to hit the largest drop on the course.

(although it seems that might not happen this year from his vlog, kinda surprised he is going for the same line that didn't score that well)
