In the heat of Utah's of Virgin Badlands, the best of the world's big mountain free riders have gathered again to compete in the world's most dangerous event to take place on two wheels... The infamous Redbull Rampage.

Solo's productions made the long trip down from BC to dig for and document James Doerfling as he set out to build a line worthy of gold. The buzz around Virgin is that James and his crew have built some of the biggest features Rampage has ever seen.

Doerfling s build crew cutting one of the gnarliest drops in Virgin

With inclement weather bumping the competition to Friday, the crew put in 12 hour days to make it happen. The end result? One of the gnarliest lines on the planet. Go get 'em James!

Looking into the abyss... Another dizzying feature on James line

 I see no line. That's a cliff. Does a parachute come standard on his Knolly?

 what line, no line, cliff diving..... what a confidence, sorry but according to my range looks suicidal and big......!!

 That was my first thought. That's not a line, that's a freefall.

 Apparently he went to the library and asked for a book on suicide and the librarian told him to f**k off because he wouldn't bring it back

 If it looks big in photo/vid, is must be massive in real life!

 This is why all the athletes should get a chunk of the prize money a 100k still ain't enough!! The advertising from this is going to be huge $$$$$.

 nuckin futs. but at least his helmet is dope as fuck. so he has no reason to be scared hahaha. but he's a gnarly ridder. he'll kill it tomorrow

 Rampage is going to be wicked, but f*cking hell, how hard would it be to rig a couple of anchors and put your builders on a rope? That one handed sledge shit was unnecessarily dangerous and stupid.

 Websters dictionary. "Mountain Biking" : The sport of definitely never doing anything unnecessarily dangerous or stupid.

 I was thinking the exact same thing.

 Seriously. With that kind of 'safety' in place I worry more about the builders than the riders. Out on these chossfest dust cliffs for hours with no protection and other things to focus on. Recipe for disaster.

 It's crazy how it looks so huge before he does it, then he does it and makes it look so easy. The video just doesn't do it justice.

 James doefling is a legend in the big mountain scene and now he's got this sweet line which dose tick all the rampage boxes so im thinking and hoping that it's gonna be his year

 Really bummed he did not qualify...

 I praise God , that Rampage remains without severe injured riders. They are playing with Gravity, that's not good...
  • 14 1
 It's good that they are playing with Gravity for without it they would never come down!

 +1, I totally agree with you
The Problem with the gravity it calls you back harder than it let you take off

 yea its not the fall,its the sudden stop.!!

 Praising God probably won't help...

 Aaron Gwin disagrees

 And Jebus probably told Gwin not to ever ride rampage cause he wasn't going to cover his ass on that s**t!

 I've never got this praise god thing when it comes to sports...I mean, there's so much nasty, evil shit that goes on in the world every. single. day, if there was a sky god looking over humanity, surely s/he/it would sort that shit out first?

Each to their own, believe what you want, but I'd rather praise the mechanical engineers and designers for keeping the riders safe.
  • 1 0
 Sure, praising god to keep these guyz safe and not badly injured just in the name of entertainment

 I'm pretty sure if you're on this site you play with gravity one way or another. kinda comes with the sport.

 I thought that was a speed check run and saw him still rolling. I thought I was about to see someone get very hurt. Slay it out there!

 I thought that too, I Was sure he was stopping, but no, straight in like a beast!

 Wouldn't ride rampage.....wouldn't even dig at rampage. Freaking scary!

 I'm not even sure I would hike at rampage...

 I don't even know if I can look at rampage..

 Besides building a super gnarly line, what Doerfling has done here is prove that the Rampage site has not been completely picked clean as far as new, massive runs. Maybe you've just got to take a second look at the zone and see the things others have missed. We're in for a hell of a contest. I cant wait for this.
  • 10 0
 The same goes for Vink, he found the gnarliest thing there about 20 feet from the start gate. I think the trouble is coming from linking a full run together without having to use a section of someone else's work. It seems like this year people are looking at stuff that last year they thought "It's not rideable" and making it rideable.
  • 2 0
 Well, I don't know. If you look at the very last frame of this video everything you are going to see is a dirt track. I think that the old wild Rampage has gone.

 Sorry, reflexively negative propped that. I didn't mean to shoot the messenger!

 That's scary. Strong reminder that this is super dangerous stuff man.
  • 3 1
 It's still amazing to me that none of these guys wears much protection... Andreu and Vink are the only ones that wears a chest protector. Most all wear knee pads, but no knee braces and only a couple of neck braces, it's crazy.

 Damn, his facebook page has a video of him casing the landing on the canyon ramp. Sounds like a gun went off

 Horrifying. Just... horrifying. So glad he's going to be OK though. I can't imagine...
  • 9 1
 When the camera pointed down, no line to be seen for me, until he dropped it. awesome craziness...

 I'll be 49 next month, this stuff still gives me goosebumps, and puts a huge smile on my face. It's all come such a long way since I first saw a BMX bike on a episode of C.H.i.P.s back in the late 70's. Just AWESOME!!

 Truly epic, the dude is clearly batshit crazy but luckily with the skills to match. Hope he scores well.

 So very insane. The man kills it. His home terrain is every bit as gnarly as this. If you've been you know.

 Bad ass line and James is the rider to do it. I've always enjoyed his riding style. Competition looks pretty tough this year but I think Doerfling is a contender. Good luck man!

 There should be a warning in the video that he's actually going to do the drop in the video. Thought they'd just do like Vink's and not show it. When he rolled it, my stomach fell out and bowels got all doo doo on me. Big Grin

 I can't even imagine standing on the edge of that cliff, looking at a postage stamp way down below, and thinking, "yeah, I'll land right there, this is just fine."

Skills. He has them.

 Doesn't look carbon to me. remember, he rode a camo-wrapped podium before. Looks like a current gen podium and that wrap doesn't look like a carbon layup I've seen.
