Giant rider, Kurt Sorge, used steep, technical, natural lines mixed with flips, supermans and suicides to take the victory at the coveted 2012 Red Bull Rampage. First-time Rampage competitor, Antoine Bizet surprised everyone with extremely technical lines that had backflips thrown into the middle of them. Local boy, Logan Binggeli took his KHS bike with 650b wheels into 3rd place with fast, flowing lines and huge flips. Brandon Semenuk, despite crashing in both runs earns the 2012 FMB World Tour victory, just narrowly edging out Martin Soderstrom, who also went down 360'ing a drop at the end of his runs.

    Semenuk's upper line was so bonkers... definitely one of the highlights for me. Respect to Sorge for slaying everything and Cam McCaul for repping the canyon gap!

    The "judges" should be bludgeoned with a hot salami though.

    I second the motion. The "Judging" was extremely uneven. Bludgeoned may be a bit strong. But I can see a hot salami being appropriate.
