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.
