Anyone who has watched Red Bull Rampage in recent years will be familiar with the name Carson Storch. 2023 will be his ninth (!) participation in this special event. After a sixth place in 2022, Carson is hungry to improve his result even more and wants to climb the podium again like in 2016. Back then, he finished in third place.

Clemens Kaudela might be known to most people from events like Dark Fest or The Nines. Through his incredible video The Minister he was able to qualify for Rampage for the first time this year. In addition to extreme stunts, the Austrian-born rider also knows a lot about trail building. He has already built the biggest freeride courses in the world in a team with other freeriders. This time at Rampage he must do it without his beloved excavator. But we could not miss the opportunity to design his bike according to this preference. We are already very excited about the creative lines that Clemens will shovel into the mountain together with his dig crew.

Both Carson and Clemens will be competing on our freerider the Spindrift. Carson has chosen the Spindrift CF and Clemens sets on the aluminum version of the Spindrift. Both have of course opted for a double crown fork, how it should be at big mountain freeride. In addition, both rely on a full 27.5“-inch setup for more maneuverability in the extraordinary tricks and lines they will build and ride.
