Press Release: Rasoulution


Juan Diego “Johny” Salido truly embodies the freeride vibe. He’s equally at home shredding steep terrain, riding downhill or chasing flips on his dirt jump bike. Now the young Mexican has decided to take the next steps in his career with Rasoulution at his side.

Johny Salido has become a fixture to the freeride scene over the past years. His performance at last year´s Marzocchi Proving Grounds, amongst a stacked field of competitors, showing complex tricks like a Flat Spin Nac Nac, ended with second place. This also meant a longtime dream come true, as he was awarded a wild card for Red Bull Rampage 2019. The dream however would not be fulfilled as a crash in the final training right before the competition started, ended it abruptly. His motivation though seems to be unbroken: Johny can´t wait to return to the deserts of Utah and prove himself worthy at the world´s most prestigious freeride competition.

The much-anticipated documentary “Keep on Keeping on – Dreaming of Rampage” which is soon to be released follows Johny´s journey to Red Bull Rampage 2019, giving personal insights with emotional story-telling. Follow this link for a first teaser of the documentary: https://vimeo.com/416102908

By partnering with Rasoulution, Johny aims to strengthen his presence in Europe and plans on competing in European events like the “Loosefest” in Belgium, which is known for its immense jumps.

The preparations for Johny´s very own Freeride competition are in full swing as well. Located in Guadalajara - Mexico, most of the course for “Freeride Fiesta” is already built and the event is planned to be held in spring 2021.
Don´t miss out on any updates of the event and some first test runs by following the “Freeride Fiesta” on Instagram!

bigquotes“Freeride Fiesta is super important to me. I want to give local riders the chance to step into the limelight and become pro riders. With Rasoulution by my side, I am able to think on a bigger scale when it comes to project planning!” Johny Salido


Rasoulution now supports Johny Salido in the areas of management and communication. Managing Director Tarek Rasouli is stoked on the team roster´s new addition:

bigquotes“The first time Johny drew my attention was back at the Marzocchi Proving Grounds event in Oregon. He was really sending it and qualifying for Rampage was the logical result. The first time I met him in person was at Rampage after his unfortunate crash during the last training prevented him from competing. We had various video calls and I realized, how positive and dedicated his attitude is on everything he does. He is a cool guy with great charisma and has extraordinary riding skills, no matter if he is on his big bike or dirt jump bike. We are happy to welcome Johny to our team and to help him elevate his career to the next level!” Tarek Rasouli

 Holy Toledo, it’s Johnny Salido! Met Johnny and his sister at CWX Innsbruck after Rogatkin introduced them to me and was immediately impressed by their friendliness and good energy. It was only later I saw Johnny send it on the bike with style. Total bummer he couldn’t compete it Rampage Finals cause he was killing it in practise. Good luck and keep ripping!!

 Tarek is one of the first names I knew in this sport. I remember him starting rasoulution after his accident. Great to see him adding some of the best athletes to his company and generally still being involved.
