I wanna see a "Bikes of Rampage" :-) PLEASE!!!
(Oct 9, 2013 at 10:56)
I'm really looking forward to watching Wil White and Kirill Benderoni. These two guys are so motivated to perform for themselves, not even for their sponsors (and lack thereof). I know they aren't going to be the favorite riders, but I'm excited to watch them!

With all these awesome photos, why do you have to be a huge a-hole by being disrespectful and insulting to my wife, who was excited to have her photo on PB for the first time. FU mysticar. Be sure to think of her this Friday when you are sitting at home and we are hanging out with Zink and Semenuk again this year!

So have fun. Of course Im sitting tomorrow on my fat ass which you can check on my photos because it's normal workday. But during the weekend I'm going to have lot of fun riding my bike. Dont be so serious.

I wonder how SX riders would react if they were told they had to build their own course.
(Oct 9, 2013 at 5:26)
Some of those photos are crazy!!! Those are some of the greatest pictures I have seen from Rampage.
