21-year-old Johny Salido from Mexico has just received his Red Bull wings. Salido was the silver medalist at Marzocchi Proving Grounds in 2019, back when the event was a qualifying event for Red Bull Rampage. Salido crashed and punctured his spleen on the Thursday evening before finals in his first Rampage appearance, but we have no doubt that the freerider whose personal hashtag is #holytoledoitsjohnysalido
will make it back to Utah again one day soon.
Salido has made a name for himself as a talented freerider and also for organizing the Freeride Fiesta in Guadalajara, Mexico and we've no doubt that he is well deserving of the Red Bull sponsorship that he's just received. We look forward to seeing what Salido and Red Bull can accomplish together.
