Sneak Peak of RockShox's 2005 BoXXer WC Sneak Peak of RockShox's 2005 BoXXer WC
There is no denying it – For a long time the RockShox BoXXer has been the weapon of choice for many top level downhill racers. Since 1996, when the first prototype BoXXer was introduced, many small refinements have been made to this world class fork. Thanks in part to the feedback gathered from their team riders – over the years RockShox has been able to satisfy the needs of not only their top World Cup racers, but also the privateer racer who’s looking for a light, affordable and serviceable race fork.

Ray's Indoor MTB Park - Cleveland, Ohio Ray's Indoor MTB Park - Cleveland, Ohio
We came, we rode, we smiled.
It somehow seems appropriate that it was while making the 350-kilometre trek from my home in Niagara Falls, Ontario to an indoor mountain biking park in Cleveland, Ohio that I drove through my first snowfall of the season. It is, after all, the nasty winter climate that made Ray Petro decide to open [L=http://www.raysmtb.com]Ray’s Indoor MTB Park[/L], a 66,000 square foot North Shore-style playground in an old warehouse in West Cleveland.

Red Bull Rampage 2004 - The Day Two Finals Red Bull Rampage 2004 - The Day Two Finals
Day Two the final leg of the event took place in the same section as the first this year, it was the same section used for last year’s Finals. This year’s Finals section was to be a completely new area further to the south, but due to heavy rainfall in days prior it was determined that the earth was too soggy to be safely ridden on.

SRAM X-Generation drivetrain sweeps at Red Bull Rampage SRAM X-Generation drivetrain sweeps at Red Bull Rampage
The Red Bull Rampage is the premiere Freeride classic that brings together the world’s top gravity talent for a two-day huck-fest in the mountains of Virgin, Utah. Tricks and treats were on order as riders launched off a variety of cliffs and extreme slopes in an attempt to complete extreme jumps safely. Athletes are judged on control, style, amplitude, fluidity and jump difficulty by a panel of Downhill and Freeride experts.

Rampage 2004 photos

Virgin, UT – October 31, 2004 – Undaunted by days of downpours, thirty of the best freeride mountain bikers from around the world (including riders from the Czech Republic, Germany, Australia, England, Ireland, France, Canada, and the US) gathered to bid a fond farewell to Red Bull Rampage in Virgin, Utah. The sun came out just in time to dry out the dirt on the qualifying ridge, the same intimidating ridge used for finals at Red Bull Rampage 2001-2003. Unfortunately, the plan of breaking in a brand new ridge for finals had to be scrapped due to soggy soil, but that did not stop the bar from being raised.
