Such a modest guy. Congrats on life, dude!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 2:50)
A man who rides for the love of the sport, not the competition, makes the best rider.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 0:25)
gee, that bike got a really good cleaning
(Oct 29, 2012 at 4:44)
Win Rampage > Indo Surf Trip > BC Sled/Board Season > Cali Biking...Pretty much as good as it gets

Living the dream
(Oct 29, 2012 at 0:33)
Between Rampage and Where the Trail Ends, Sorge is King right now. That dude shreds.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 17:20)
the 9th Knight .... rad!

Giant for LIFE and always stay stoked on sledding!!! Good to see you tear it up in such a windy run down that demon of a mountain!!! May the POW be thick and plenty this winter!!!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 7:23)
Giant for life? How naive, why can you for marketing bs like that? They are a fine company (albeit one with a silly name), but committing to any corporation to that extent is ridiculous. Hell, Sorge will probably change frame sponsers in the next year or two.
I remember when I worked at a shop that sold Giant, customers would sometimes pronounce it Gee-ant.
I think a big factor in his win was line selection. He pulled off some huge moves, but superior lines were what set him apart from some of the big names that were expected to do better.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 8:13)
shut up... just shut up...
and I wouldn't mind committing to Giant for the rest of my life
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:54)
god i hate how PB makes me log on to read all the super stupid comments (ones with lotta neg props).. then i feel almost kinda dumb for logging in just to read them..
(Oct 29, 2012 at 10:38)
I made a valid point that you couldn't make a valid counterpoint to, so there is no reason for me to shut up.
Would you put a Giant tattoo on your body? No, most people would agree that is stupid. Especially if the company goes out of business or sells their bikes in Wal-Mart someday.
Giant does make some good bikes and sponsors great athletes, but they aren't perfect. They stole the DW link design without paying royalties, and have sponsored roadie teams implicated in doping.
Attack the message, not the messenger. Peace out.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 10:40)
Fuck off Protour
(Oct 29, 2012 at 11:55)
lol, protour, giant is not about to go out of business anytime soon..
(Oct 29, 2012 at 12:24)
Protour needs to leave pinkbike
(Oct 29, 2012 at 12:29)
nahh dude i think he can stay he makes me laugh every time i read something he writes.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 12:44)
Protour, please be quiet. Giant has put him in really great place, and he has ridden their bikes to great succceses. Their bikes are really good, and he likes them. He really likes and appreciates what the company has done for him, and getting a tattoo is just one of the ways he shows his support. Lots of people get tattoos, and the only difference with his is that it is the giant brand. He loves the bikes that he rides, and wants to show how committed he is. So maybe you should just shut up and think about stuff before you say it. On the other hand... Keep making me laugh.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 14:14)
Protour, here's the thing that you don't seem to get. Everyone on pinkbike (except you) understands that mofyman is just expressing the fact that he like Giant bikes. We read his comment, we get that, we respect that. Then you come along and take the comment far too literally, and expand it to the level of ridiculousness - this is why the argument that you are looking for becomes meaningless. The basic intent of a comment is obvious to everyone except you, and you come on and make a comment looking for an argument, which is why the discussion becomes about how annoying you are.
I usually wouldn't comment, but it annoys me how you come in and hijack a comment section and make it all about you, how about you try adding something of value instead of just using hyperbole to start an argument.
Back to the subject - Giant bikes are awesome, Kurt Sorge rips, and Rampage is such a great competition.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 14:26)
PROTOUR, GO FOR A RINSE BUDDIE.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 17:29)
Protour, can i ask what bike brand do you ride. Why don't you tattoo that brand to your chest because you are so so wise and full of wisdom about technical gear, frames, riders etc and obviously because you know so much that is the BEST brand - oh wait huffy is not that good! i suggest you grow taste buds in your ass h@le.
oh and Giant bikes are awesome, Kurt Sorge rips, and Rampage is such a great competition as nz stormer wrote!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 18:50)
Oh, Protour, always good for a laugh you dumb bastard.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 22:22)
hahaha good to see Protour is back!
(Nov 5, 2012 at 19:21)
I dont always read stupid comments, but when I do, Protour made them
(Oct 29, 2012 at 4:56)
One of the most down to earth guys I have had the chance to talk too. Last night "Where the trail ends" in Toronto was fantastic. Red Bull afterwards for a private gather and chat with himself and the film crew! Very awesome! Thanks Kurt for being number one!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 7:15)
I am happy he won. But I still didn't get what the f*** the "judges" had in mind to put C. McCaul out of the podium. Weird!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 10:05)
that will soon be set right
(Oct 30, 2012 at 4:24)
I Hope. Norbraten was affected too.
(Dec 27, 2012 at 4:41)
I tried to understand what he said about his crank but I didn't get that. Would anyone explain to me what is he using in his crank to prevent it from spinning too much?
Thanks in advance!!!!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 5:39)
Sorgl-hoff is the man!!!!!!! Congrates buddy, you deserve it all!!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 8:31)
wurd! Well done Sorge... Hope to see ya this winter for some sled laps.. Or some surf!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:12)
I'll put my props here too budday! Still haven't had the chance to congratulate you in person...but we'll be sledding right soon here...kitty sounds real nice like!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 0:42)
Pretty awesome he talked about his snowmachining and other activities in the off season... Nice bike too...
(Oct 29, 2012 at 7:44)
didn't realize that was what he meant by sledding...
(Oct 29, 2012 at 8:00)
HAHAHA ya me too until the end.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:54)
yeah I was thinking Calvin & Hobbes style tobogganing was kinda tame for this guy.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 14:53)
Sorge is such an honest guy and deserved to win redbull rampage
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:04)
nice to see humble people win
(Oct 29, 2012 at 1:29)
awesome no-foot-can at the end. looks way too easy!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 1:00)
Master of whips and scrubs!
(Oct 29, 2012 at 15:45)
Anyone know what stem he is riding? Not in the video clip but rather the first picture.
(Nov 1, 2012 at 11:58)
Weird, that looks like a $5 department store seat on his bike.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 20:10)
When will Under Armour start selling merch for the MTB market???
(Oct 29, 2012 at 17:01)
THE HOFF IS CHAMP
(Oct 29, 2012 at 3:36)
nice guy and awsome ride at RedBull Rampage....
(Oct 29, 2012 at 0:17)
Interviews lack biking.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:55)
... thats why its called an 'interview'.

Anybody knows if UFC can be watched anywhere?
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:13)
(Nov 2, 2012 at 12:54)
Where? And just in case, I mean the FR one, not the fighting.
(Nov 2, 2012 at 13:12)
No idea mate , I genuinely thought you ment the fighting , I did not make the link to the Freeride comp xD
Below threshold threads are hidden

I hardly think Virgin Utah warrants the need for Muddy Mary's
(Oct 29, 2012 at 0:32)
It's dusty man, "spikier" tires hook in well
(Oct 29, 2012 at 8:32)
They seem to have worked just fine for him..
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:06)
those muddy mary 2.5s are FAT! seemed like a good selection for Rampage.
(Oct 29, 2012 at 9:14)
Don't be fooled by the name , those tires kick ass in every condition I have ridden in so far.
