Have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch Red Bull Rampage in person? Jill Kintner was on site for her first time this year and described the experience phenomenally: "This is the first time I've seen Rampage in person; watching on TV you don't really get the whole vibe, you don't get the process, you don't get the fear, or the textures, or the smells, or the heat, or how these guys all work together and bond together. It's such a completely different experience in person. I had to see if for myself. Just looking at the size of everything, I know they have progressed into this, but I can't fathom doing something like that. Even someone who can ride bikes, they're just so brave and they have to brave their own lines.
'You empathize with everyone and you can feel what they are feeling and you're so scared, but you can't say anything because you want to be supportive. But they are so comfortable and it's a process from start to finish, you can't just come in for the final and really understand what this place is about. You need to be here a few days to watch them build, to watch their team work together, to watch the guy on the next ridge cheer them on when they hit it for the first time. And you have to see the sunset and feel the dirt and how light it is and how well it packs and it's just a different place and a different vibe than you get on TV. And plus, they've been out here for like eight days, I've been out here for two-and-a-half and I feel so roached and burned and tired from hiking around. But eight days in a row? And then to have to do this at the end of it? Impressive stuff."
