Rampage - A Blank Canvas
When you see the site, you'll know it wasn't a bad choice and its not overkill by any means. The top of the course is super steep and that's where a lot of the gnar will go down (really only two big spines to ride on from off the top, the rest will go down the face) and where it seems a lot of riders will spend most of their time building. The wooden features (3 of them) are in places where it makes sense including another 72ft. canyon gap with a trickable lip, a big trickable step down that riders are stoked on and a big moto-style hip towards the finish. That's all and I already saw multiple people building their lines around some of the features. I can't really attest if an all natural line can win but some of the lines up top are going to be so insane that they can easily match someone tricking one of the pre-made features. Wood or no wood, who cares as long as its adding something and not restricting line choices. Oh yeah, did I mention its really steep? It felt like it took half the time to hike to the top than the old course... its nuts oh and if you're going to watch, its much more spectator friendly this year. You can see most of the action from certain spots.

The only downside is the bar drag comment.. its easy to drag bars when you're in a knee-high deep trench. But really though, this is the best picture I've seen in a very long time. incredible.

WAKI- think for a minute before you post. I was referring to 95% of PB hating on this event on every update calling it easy, just riding down a grassy hill, etc. when it turned out the riders thought it was gnarly and really fun. Why would I be insecure about being stoked on a new mtb event? gabriel- I completely agree with you after seeing some dude's gopro preview of it and it sucks it was cancelled but I'm happy at least this idea came to fruition in one way or another. Remember, this is a smallish EC resort with no previous focus on MTBing and cannot be compared to Livingno, and you could kinda say this was WV's first attempt at a mtb race. I'm sure they'll make it a crap ton better if the want is there because it takes a shitton of money to make a course (Red Bull Wide Open was around 400k I believe). They weren't going to go all out with an experimental race format especially when they're not solid in the MTB market.

Yeah for advertisements/edits and for shows where the bike is most on display but not for events where the rider's comfort level determines if they do well or suffer a really bad injury. That makes zero sense. If they completely stopped production of 26" wheeled frames then possibly but that's a different story.

robwhynot- Aw man, this must be the first time in mtbing history where promoters have exaggerated the scope of an event!

oops, you're right. Jackson Strong did it a bit ago and Cook tried a double frontie and ended up seriously hurt (SCI I believe). The vid musta meant the first one on that ramp.

shuwukong- its better than nothing, buddy. You may have joined MTBing a bit late but for the rest of us, we're stoked on having another chance for mtbing to have exposure and for the riders to have a chance to earn money doing what they love. Its their first year hosting an event that has never been done before and they're not exactly known as the most mtb-orientated... it won't be the most absurd track. Just support it and if it does well enough, it will grow. Negativity does nothing but to shit on the growth of the sport you claim to be a part of.
