 What a great little film. I never been to such an event, but you can feel how stressful it must be for the riders. It pretty much all consists of waiting, preparation, some more waiting, be nice to the fans and other people, and then it's time to ride. They have to deliver in a very small amount of time. So off you go, and suddenly: BOOM, it's all over when you crash. Just one mistake. Takes nerves of steel to be one of those guys - I wouldn't want to be one of them. Good luck Cam Zink and others, hope everyone makes it without any mayor injuries.

 Crazy perspective, very unique video. Definitely showed more of the stress/pressure that goes along with these big contests. And Zink IS a legend!

 The shot of Zink covered in dirt, Soderstrom limping and the guys going nuts in the background sums up how think the line is between near death and glory. My heart was beating as he dropped in despite knowing exactly what was coming.

 At times I think this guy is indestructible. This + his huge bail at Rampage, and still pretty much OK.

 This video has so much emotions inside... I knew about the crash but when he started his run i've been so excited that i forgot about it and almost started to cry when video became black & white...

 I wachted that crash live, really too bad because his run was looking way better than genoms, would have loved to see it completed.

 His words after he landed on his arse.... I always wondered what went through his head.. I was stood ten feet away right next to the landing and the sound was horrific when he hit the dirt. My heart sank I thought his back was done for. Couldn't believe it when he got up. Guys a boss. Good luck this year Cam buddy

 When He crashed last year, that scared the crap out of me. I broke my back landing that same way during qualifiers in 07. Not a good feeling at all. Glad He was able to get up from that one.

 Its all modern gladiatorism of our time everybody benefits, just that we dont feel their pain, except saying ouch. Zink is the man, sends it BIIIIIIIIGGGG, somtimes crashes the hardest, greatfully survives all. LEGEND, doesnt matter if not on podium.

 At the end, you can almost feel the frustration and all the other emotions when he's looking at Genon. Such a competitor. I liked that video a ton. Another reason Cam will always be one of my favorites.
