Here it is, the 2015 Red Bull Rampage Athlete Invite List. If your name is on this page, it's because you go harder and faster than most riders - and also probably because you have a bit of a screw loose! We're stoked to see many of our favorite riders return, and also a few newcomers to spice things up: Remy Metailler and Remi Thirion will both try to take their park and race skills to the cliffs and dirt of Utah, and Bernard Kerr and Brendan Fairclough will be returning to the desert to fly the flag for the World Cuppers. Among the usual FMB and slopestyle/freeride suspects, we're also particularly stoked to see The Claw back, healthy and ready to take on the event he helped define over the years, and last but not least, how could we not be pumped on seeing OG freerider Wil White once again on the invite list. When you only ride one event per year, might as well make it the Rampage!
