2018 RED BULL RAMPAGE RETURNS WITH A BRAND NEW VENUE

Virgin, Utah (October 12, 2018) – Today, Red Bull Rampage has announced a brand new venue for mountain biking’s legendary freeride competition. Returning to the Utah desert on October 26th, the new venue will give 21 of the world’s greatest freeriders the chance to write the next chapter of the sport.Different from any previous Red Bull Rampage venue, the new grounds pair steeper and more technical sections with 150 feet of additional vertical. Riders will venture even farther into the desert’s unknowns to explore and decipher the challenging and unforgiving new terrain. In advance of the competition, riders, along with their two-person build crews, will spend four days creating their own unique lines down the unmarked face. They will then have four days to practice and prepare for the competition.

 

The best seat in the house will be on Red Bull TV, tune in to the live broadcast of Red Bull Rampage 2018 on October 26th. Broadcast will be available in English, Russian, German, Polish, Spanish and French.
