Virgin, Utah (August 24, 2022) – Eighteen athletes have been invited to the 2022 Red Bull Rampage, the premier big-mountain freeride competition, where they’ll compete to determine the best in the sport. The world’s top mountain bike athletes will descend on Southwestern Utah, marking the 16th edition in the event’s history. Red Bull Rampage is scheduled for October 21st and tickets will go on-sale to the public on Tuesday, August 30th at 9:00 AM PT/12:00 PM ET via the event website.
“Red Bull Rampage is the pinnacle of the freeride mountain biking scene, so it’s exciting to see who I will be competing alongside,” said local Utah competitor and the 2021 Style Award recipient Jaxson Riddle. “After a groundbreaking event last year, myself and the other riders are ready to get back out there and push the sport further than ever."
The top ten riders from the 2021 competition were automatically pre-qualified for this year’s event, while the other 8 wildcards and 5 alternates were selected by a committee of former Rampage competitors, pro athletes, judges, and industry experts based on competition results and video submissions. Six former winners and three event rookies are among those set to compete, highlighting a blend of seasoned veterans and hungry newcomers ready to leave their mark at the event.
“Competing in Red Bull Rampage has always been a career goal of mine, so I’m stoked to receive this invitation to be on the biggest stage of freeride,” said Dylan Stark, a first-time competitor. “To compete in the pinnacle of the sport alongside all the riders who push me to be better and further my craft is a huge honor. I’m ready to put together all my skills and years of training in the desert this year.”
