Extreme Mountain Biking

There is mountain biking as you and I know it, and then there is big mountain freeride mountain biking, like on display at Red Bull Rampage. While both involve two tires with knobby tread, the similarities pretty much stop there. The 13th running of Red Bull Rampage showed the world what is truly possibly on a mountain bike.

Twenty-one of the world’s top freeride mountain bikers were selected to compete in this invite-only Red Bull Signature Series event. Riders not only had to ride down insanely steep, loose and rocky terrain, but they had to hand shape their own trail down the mountain.

2018 Rampage Venue

Set on private land on the side of a mountain in the desert, near the west entrance to Zion National Park, the new 2018 Red Bull Rampage event site is like nothing seen before. The new site is insanely steep from top to bottom. The course this year gained 150 feet of vertical over last year’s site, bringing it to about 750 feet of total vertical descent from top to bottom. No matter what path the competitors chose to create down this new venue, it was sure to be steep, technical and full of big drops. The course was so steep it was a serious challenge just to climb and walk up and down it, no less ride a bike down it.
