bigquotesCarson Storch, Darren Berrecloth and host Sal Masekela rewatch the 2019 Red Bull Rampage event. Other surprise athletes will show up to share untold Rampage stories and new behind-the-scenes content.

Rampage returned to Virgin, Utah in 2019 for its 14th edition with the biggest show in freeride mountain biking. The world’s greatest freeriders returned to what in 2018 was a new venue. A roster of 21 riders took to the mountain with their dig crews carving out innovative lines, features and drops worked on last year in the pursuit of the perfect run and being crowned Red Bull Rampage champion.

Riders, along with their two-person build crews, spent eight days building their lines in the desert of Virgin, Utah. Watch live with us to see who will take home the crown!

 I think Sal kills it in whatever he announces. His professionalism, overall knowledge of action sports coupled with mic and speaking skills form a solid foundation for more specific sport color commentators to add to, providing entertainment for all ranges of people with varying experience and knowledge of any sport. I was stoked he watched my ‘Inside the Tape’ line analysis of the riders on Pinkbike at last years Rampage practise when he arrived in Virgin, Utah late at night to familiarize himself with the specific details of the lines, features and head space of the riders before announcing the Finals. Go Sal!

 I was hoping for Rampage riders discussing their wristwatch collections. We might have learned that Fairclough was wearing an MB&F while backflipping that canyon gap. Aww yisss.

 Sal sounds as ignorant about the sport as when he did the announcing the first time.

 Sal is possibly the most legit person in action sports broadcasting. Your ignorance of the details surrounding broadcasting of action sports doesn't take away from his knowledge and history of multiple disciplines as well as his innate ability to translate a varying amount of action sports to the general public. Oh and action sports.

 @scott-townes: He might know a lot about MX and skate and snowboard but he seems to know jack shit about MTB. Contrast him with Cam who knows WTF he is saying and can translate it to the public. We need another rider who can talk in front of a camera not Sal. Or he could go out and ride and learn and then know what the F is up.

 @freestyIAM: Again, you're displaying your ignorance. "He only knows a lot about skate, snowboard, MX, surfing, but he's not an expert on MTB!!!" No shit, that's why he's always paired up with an experienced person in the sport. Guess why? Its because he's not hired to be the announcer representing the technical aspects of freeriding. As a side note, I find it odd you refer to Rampage as "MTB", maybe a further indication of how ignorant you are. Sal is there for his experience in broadcasting and for having a good, general understanding of action sports and the mindset of those who participate.

Its sad you're ripping on someone who has more knowledge in various action sports and apparently in freeriding itself than you do. You're just a clown trying to gain interwebz cred by ripping on someone who you perceive as an easy target. Welp, good job. Pat yourself on the back, buddy.

So... I’m picking up that sals a bit of a general hero to you.
But it also sounds like you could be open to the idea that he sucks pretty bad at the mountain biking side of his job.

 @jflb: Nope, just shutting down an ignorant gaper, that's all.

 @scott-townes: pull Sal's BBC out your neck for a minute and let some oxygen back into feeble brain of yours

 @freestyIAM: you lost buddy just pick up and leave

 Some mtb’ers seem to be under the impression that broadcasts need to be specifically geared towards them or it’s reason to bitch. Yeah, we get it, sal doesn’t have technical mtb knowledge chops but most of us don’t care because we understand a lot of folks who don’t even mtb are tuning in. Is it really that big of a deal? I know exactly what goes down when I watch, and hearing sal talk doesn’t bother me one bit.

Same a*sholes ridicule gatto when she found some opportunity behind a microphone. It’s seriously not a huge deal at all.
