Relive the Red Bull Rampage

For years now, Red Bull Rampage has been one of, if not the most iconic, celebrated competitions in the world of mountain biking. For good reason, too. The invite-only contest merges different subsets of biking culture (slopestyle, downhill and freeride), pitting riders with varied backgrounds into one titanic showdown. Finally, the full TV episode is available to watch in its entirety.

Contenders battle for top honors at breakneck speeds, kicking up blood red dirt as they spin down the sheer sandstone rims of Virgin, Utah. Colossal gaps, unfathomable lines and rattling falls make this Red Bull special well-worth watching. Catch every moment and relive the Rampage.

Best Trick

2014 Best Trick: Cam Zink – 360 drop

While Cam Zink placed second overall, this 360 earned him the coveted “Best Trick” award for the second year in a row.

Best Trick 2013: Cam Zink – 78-ft Backflip

The 360 drop was phenomenal, but Zink’s 78-ft backflip from the year before is one of the craziest tricks we’ve ever seen pulled on a mountain bike. Though the 2015 Rampage is a ways away, we can’t wait to see what step down master Zink has in store.

100 ft Record Breaking Backflip:

Note that though the title of the previous Red Bull clip is “Biggest mountain bike backflip in history,” Cam Zink saw to destroy his own record a year later at Mammoth with a 100-ft (and 3 inches) backflip, landing a place in the Guinness Book of World Records and mountain bike folklore.
