Video: A Week of Rampage with Kyle Norbraten

Jan 21, 2014
by Scott Secco  


The Red Bull Rampage is synonymous with danger and excitement, and can anoint mountain biking royalty with a single jaw-dropping descent. Push aside the state-of-art bikes and protective gear, and before the media circus comes to town—you're left with the rider—the individual responsible for crafting and executing their route down the sport's most treacherous mountainside. In this unique behind-the-scenes video, Kyle Norbraten walks us through his poignant journey of what it takes to make history on mountain biking's hallowed Virgin, Utah, hillside.

 Very well done edit. Love the complete lack of "bro-talk" third person commentary. One of the more emotive/cathartic Rampage edits... thanks!

 I really enjoy watching the camaraderie and positivity amongst the riders. I also really enjoy how these Rampage videos keep trickling out. I also really enjoy a good breakfast sandwich with coffee.

 hey, why doesn't someone get a huge wall of speakers and just blast : www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU1VfYYKMDk the entire run, they wouldn't even need to plan a run because their adrenaline would be so f*cking high!

 I just listened to your link. I think your right. But we will need to at least quadruple the air ambulances and emergency medics if this is going to happen.

 This video highlights the fact that 3 days is not enough to build and test your lines. I wish they would go to a one week building schedule next year. And give all the builders lunch and dinner.
