Bienvenido Aguado had an amazing start to his run at Proving Grounds with a massive front flip off the meat cannon.


Bienvenido Aguado Alba has received the invite that Gee Atherton has relegated after a shoulder injury, and will be making his first trip to Virgin. Alba’s performance at the inaugural Marzocchi Proving Grounds was good enough for fourth place, making him the first alternate for Red Bull Rampage.

Bienve won best trick for his massive frontflip off the meat cannon. Unfortunately for the media Bienve prefers not to tell people when he s dropping so there is less pressure on him.

 They should drop Cam Zink. He's old and broken...

 @applesauce42: His common attitude. Merely camouflage. Smile
  • 11 1
 Agreed, the guy is a legend and typically the first rider to hit a fresh jump... the world, and rampage needs more Jordie.

 @applesauce42: Zink is always Rampage podium contender
  • 7 2
 Still don't know why he didn't get invited to finish his line. He was on a podium run and got off line cuz he was sick and rushed on the build. So lame he didn't get a 2nd chance. Jordie is rampage.

 I was at proving grounds, and he was one of the only riders, almost constantly riding when they could . He was hands-down killing it,and definitely, definitely deserves his spot.

 Exactly...that dude deserves it for sure. He was doing work out there and that front flip was no joke.

 Hoping Doerfling will be back one of these years.

 Doerfling is a wicked rider and I would like to see more of him, but I also appreciate that he does his own thing that is very different from the RB marketing blitz horseshit that being part of Rampage involves.

 @plyawn: True. I don't think Redbull was very happy when he skipped Rampage to fight forest fires in his home town, even though it was completely justified and very noble.

 It's a bummer gee got injured because he could of truely sent it down in a freeridy way as we know him. However I'm also excited to Bienve alba. Would of loved seeing them both at rampage tho

 Bummed for Gee but pumped for Beinvenedo. After he threw the front-flip off that meat cannon it was hard to accept him not making it to Rampage.......best of luck!

 His surname is Aguado, Alba is his second surname as we have two surnames in Spanish (recognizing both father and mother). So, nobody knows him as "Alba", you either call him Bienvenido (name) or Aguado (surname), or even Aguado-Alba if you want to include his full surname (but nobody would recognize him like this)
