2013 Red Bull Rampage: Impressions
I have to say I think redbull need to have a long hard look in the mirror in regards to what is expected of this competition. Redbull invests in so many different sports which is such a cool thing to do, but when it comes to the one sport I love above all else I think it's pretty clear the riders are being let down, and we all know it. No crew support, no lunch breaks for the crews, a very small time scale coupled with the expectation for riders to risk their lives for what is essentially a pitifully small prize purse ( x-fighters is $1,000,000 +) I would look at formatting the event over a longer perdiod, with more dig time and definately crew support from redbull, make it a team event where the crew gets props/small prize purse too. More focus on what lines are being dug, altered or sniped. And most definately a two run format, over multiple days if needs be, heck even a three run format with another riders' line pulled out of a hat a few days before, see who can step it up on someone else line yeah!? That would separate the men from the slightly lesser men. A the moment I feel like this event is becoming more of a media circus than an actual 'tip of the cap'to the best riders in the world. The injuries are shrugged off and forgotten and anything other than the most insane trick and winning run are all too quickly left in the Virgin dust. Long story short, I think the support and prizes don't reflect the gravitas of what the riders are willing to do, let alone actually achieve, and for that reason I think redbull fall pitifully short of the all encompassing global 'extreme' sports supporter it claims to be.
