One two three go.
Rider sign in - how many big line shredders can you cram into one photo?

Course inspection scene one, take one.
Bourdo - first dude to try out his run from the top start gate.

Brenden Fairclough's line is straight up psychotic. Here he is testing the run in to his own version of the canyon gap. Stay tuned...

you gotta love brendogsstunt
(Oct 4, 2012 at 10:49)
so stoked for brendawg!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 12:00)
They had a safety meeting, where they actually talked about safety. That's novel!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 13:58)
Some better photos in here of it as well:

Gravity got nothing on Brendog
(Oct 4, 2012 at 18:02)
If I were Buehler or Bourdo, and a racer like Brendogg, or a slopestyler won, I'd be a little bit dark aye. It'd be like a field hockey player showing up and dominating the NHL... In saying that, I do hope Brendogg takes it!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:27)
I am literally frothing at the bung hole. World Champs had me excited, this is another level. Love to see Brendawg bring it home...
(Oct 4, 2012 at 2:32)
post those rampage bikes pics pls.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 2:38)
Are you actually frothing at the bung hole? Eww...
(Oct 4, 2012 at 3:17)
on instagram lluis lacondeguy uploaded a pic of brendogs canyon gap... lets just say we are in for a treat
(Oct 4, 2012 at 3:36)
Brendogs put a coupla shots up aswell that gap is uncomprehendably mental!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 4:17)
brendog's canyon gap can be seen here-
(Oct 4, 2012 at 5:32)
So, once a rider/team have built a line, is it fair game for anyone to hit it? Or is it off-limits? Because surely that could cause all kinds of 'I saw it first' bullshit?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 5:40)
(Oct 4, 2012 at 5:50)
Funny how pinkbike is hiding the fact that bourdo's line is possibly the craziest, most exposed line ever done in mtbing...
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:41)
Robbie is a beast
(Oct 4, 2012 at 8:39)
@sionr644 Thanks for the link. I never look anywhere besides Pinkbike, but that was worth the detour. Can't wait for it all to go down!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 9:14)
there are alot of amazing pics of riders and locations on this site but pics of rampage actually scare me from my computer screen. i think brendog might've found his true calling. all i can say about his gap line is F allofthat! insane!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:16)
Wil White is an Animal! Hitting the Oakley sender like it's no big deal! Watch out for him, he's a shredder! So stoked on this contest. Brendan's line looks mental! Building his own massive Canyon Gap! and apparently Zink and Cmac have big plans for the pre-made Canyon gap! Cant wait to see it go down!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 2:33)
Am I looking in the wrong place or does the 2nd new wooden feature that fires you at that huge kicker land you on a really flat landing ?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 1:02)
That is so not how you conduct a safety meeting...
(Oct 4, 2012 at 7:46)
I love safety meetings
(Oct 4, 2012 at 9:45)
as far as I can tell, no one in that meeting is getting safe. Maybe should ask some of the riders how to do it.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 19:12)
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:43)
My shift is over, I get home and instead of going straight to bed, I turn on the computer and holy crap, Margus Riga delivers... again ! How in the hell am I going to sleep now with TC Nadine howling outside my window, and "dirty" pictures in my head ?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 1:04)
These are the best set of MTB photos I have ever seen in my life! Simply brilliant! The darkness, the dust, the compositions....other worldly and not too obvious. I am inspired.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:43)
Go Brendawg !!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:25)
I am so looking forward to this. Lets hope that lagging servers dont spoil this one. Got mighty sick of being bounced back to some "extreme" redbull advert and having to reconnect
(Oct 4, 2012 at 8:00)
Ill be at that comp on Sunday these guys show all of us that no matter your discipline, with hard work, commitment and the heart to achieve something great things can happen. I'm so stoked to be able to see this first hand!!! SEND IT WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:33)
Wow Margus! Lots of hiking for you eh?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 9:20)
im surprised that protour guy hasnt said anything about this yet... whats wrong with u? why r u taking so long?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 9:50)
We know its truly badass when protour is speechless....
(Oct 4, 2012 at 13:34)
Heres the build of the trophies + a video
The video turned out rad!!
Monkey Likes Shiny hammering out the build
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:26)
Brendan posted a photo of his gap on twitter and it looks like its come straight out of a video game. no for real life. psychotic is 100% the right word for that line.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 2:30)
Can you post a link up of this picture please?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 3:26)
there are two more. just go on his twitter profile
(Oct 4, 2012 at 4:04)
That gap is sick!
I'm so stoked to see Brendog showing his skills and style in this year's Rampage. Definitely one of my favourites riders
(Oct 4, 2012 at 4:09)
Thanks for the links dude. So excited for brendog , I think hes got the speed , style and tricks to be a true contender.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 9:16)
Lol at the toeasy hash tag
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:59)
O crap! I've just made a mess of my computer screen! All those wicked shredders in one place just blew my mind!!!! I can't wait for this, come on the rampage!!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 2:07)
Can't quite see in the photo of the Oakley sender, but did the 3rd line off it get built?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 11:18)
Use and abuse of Instagram is fucking boring. I hate it more and more everyday.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 7:34)
Sign in chick has booty!!!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 9:15)
Even the digging looks dangerous xD
(Oct 4, 2012 at 21:45)
Kinda hoping Fairclough will take it.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 13:57)
The nickname "Brendog" is an aweful nickname to have I wonder if he likes it? Either way that guy shreads and I am chearing for him. But I want Zink to win it again, seen that guy at Northstar and a super chill cat.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 14:56)
Maybe we should call him Brencat then.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 10:26)
That's a joke right.....safety meeting?????? Yup, it's safe guys, chuck yourselves off of this!!!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:08)
If brendan wins i really hope he doesnt quit racing and start doing freeride events. Don't want to loose another one of the most stylish riders out there like Nico Vinc.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 5:39)
Awesome shots dude!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 7:07)
Agree. Amazing shots. But please Margus! Put the pics a little bigger so we insignificant mortals can use them as screen-savers for our laptops. No one is gonna us them for profit as they are copyrighted material. Please?!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 5:00)
best birthday weekend ever
(Oct 4, 2012 at 3:11)
So will Brendog's line be for qualification and not in the right zone for finals, or the other way around? It confuses me.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 2:40)
Every photo is a story. Looks like we are set for the best event of the year
(Oct 4, 2012 at 1:57)
best riders best bikes best crowd best landscape and in 5 words BEST EVENT IN THE WORLD
(Oct 4, 2012 at 5:08)
brendog has got this
(Oct 4, 2012 at 3:56)
I want to go to these events, it is even possible?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:35)
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:33)
I hope , that zink orfairclough or anthony wins
(Oct 4, 2012 at 2:31)
zink will undoubtedly flip the canyon gap!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 15:57)
So excited!!! think i just peed a little!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:31)
Why is Bourdo riding in 90s ravers jeans? Are JNCO the new slim?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 0:40)
because he is a man, not some fixie hipster. maybe thats why.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 1:33)
Ok Im getting my raver jeans for biking, so I can be a man too! They are super good for getting stuck in the chain & sprocket I hear....
(Oct 4, 2012 at 11:00)
And skinny jeans are super good for becoming impotent.
So... jeans stuck in chains (that don't happen btw when using a guide and bash guard), are worse than becoming impotent? There has been many many proofs that overly tight jeans causes blanks. The 60's, 70's and 80's were enough proof that wearing tight jeans produces retarded seedlings, so why is the trend coming back?
Tight/skinny jeans are good on one sex... and that's females.
If I wanted to see guys in "skinny" jeans I'd go to the gay rodeo in texas. Straight guys don't need to "show" or "worry" about their "figure". But, function over looks... then why don't cord's or mesh pants come back then?
Also reno, the only people I know that like white walls on their bikes are hispanic and ride "lowrider" bikes around. La coucha rach ah la coucha rach ah la la la la laaa.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 11:31)
rffr, your life is sad. and white walls are awesome
(Oct 4, 2012 at 11:45)
How is my life sad?
And white walls are awsome? Talk about being a poser adult that grew up in the 70's.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 11:48)
And eeek nhp890, I thought my shorts were short being right above the knees... but riding in a swimming drag suit.... that's scary.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 12:11)
you're just proving my point. your posts are dripping with frustration
(Oct 4, 2012 at 14:28)
So, if I wear skinny jeans that means I won't have to worry about girls getting knocked up anymore? hmmm...?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 15:25)
Protour move over, there's a new troll in town.
(Oct 5, 2012 at 22:36)
Hmm, not too many straight guys I know saying "dripping" as an adjective these days. Sounds sort of... well...
(Oct 7, 2012 at 20:51)
And btw Slaythenight, might want to check "dates" a bit more. For someone who has been here less than a bit, you sure are trying to act "cool".
(Oct 4, 2012 at 5:08)
On the VitalMTB slideshow... anyone else see Gee's MASSIVE drop?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 10:46)
Does anyone know if Gee is there?
(Oct 4, 2012 at 8:55)
Holy fuck!!!! I cannot wait for this shit to go down!!!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:53)
tilt shift or instagram? i can't tell
(Oct 4, 2012 at 15:57)
very nice job guys
(Oct 4, 2012 at 18:43)
so cool bra!
(Oct 4, 2012 at 8:49)
Get it will!!! Huckin the fuck out of the aoakley drop!! Reppin socal
(Oct 4, 2012 at 7:08)
Hope Claw do the best.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 12:49)
Im so excited for this
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:53)
lets just hope the weather is good , no wind or rain please
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:12)
Bourdons jeans ist definitely too long
(Oct 4, 2012 at 6:48)
And he's actually wearing jean shorts....
(Oct 4, 2012 at 13:02)
1st to send it...that's our Bourdo. Amazing the way he reminds me of Bender
