 THAT DOUBLE BACK FLIP!!!!!!! ANTOINE!! YOU CRAZY BASTARD!!
  • + 18
 Hope he is ok!!
  • + 20
 Almost spat my coffee onto the screen... hope he heals up quick, that was epic.
  • + 17
 I really wish there was a live chat option on Redbull TV so we could all talk about this stuff while watching.
  • + 8
 Live chat would be epic!
  • + 11
 It seems that single backflip and 360 are the lowest standard for Rampage riders, so our French boy throw down a double backflip. It's a shame he was so close to make it. Hope you are ok and heal up quick Antoine!
  • + 12
 It looked like he snapped his forearm... looked way out of shape when he was crouched on the ground...
  • + 3
 I'm gonna let him get the RZR
  • + 7
 @ajayflex - confirmed broken arm
  • + 17
 He deserves viewers choice for sure
  • + 97
 Cam McCaul is doing a fantastic job in the booth, nice to finally have some great commentary at Rampage.
  • + 24
 This. It's so sick to have someone who actually knows their shit, and seems like a cool guy to boot!
  • + 8
 Cam was exceptional....He REALY made the show shine with his commentary. What a difference having him there!!!
  • + 87
 Aggy's run was great, but not even close to Semenuk's.
  • + 82
 Norbs got ...... Engaged!
  • + 1
 Amazing! Didn't see that coming...
  • + 6
 his future wife didn't either Big Grin she was like "Whaaat" ! I was so afraid she left or say like 'I don't know' .. but norbs nailed it!!
  • + 68
 No way aggy's run beat semenuks...
  • + 63
 Holy shit, Bizet's run. That could have been the winner
  • + 14
 Gutted he missed that double Frown
  • + 3
 I'm assuming this post was prior to Paul Bas' run. Potential best line of the day for me.
  • + 54
 What the flick is going on? Sorge at 96.5 ?? i'm not sure what to think about this judging anymore.
  • + 30
 The judging is a nonsense this year.

 Hum. I disagree with Zink and Aggy scoring (too high imo) and now I'm completly lost!
  • + 3
 @Marc2211 Judging is nonsens almost every year.
Only judge chould be Peoples Choice!
  • + 47
 Semenuk's run was so so much better than Aggy's. I got the feeling beforehand that the judging would be like this...
  • + 47
 Fairclough - the only guy hitting the GoPro step down is using a Sony Action Cam.
  • + 33
 I don't care who wins anymore. Almost impossible to fairly judge a contest like this with the slope guys doing their crazy tricks and the big jumps of the fest series guys or the guys riding fast tech lines. Definitely don't think Aggys first run was better than semenuks but what can ya do. Better to just sit back and watch the amazing riding.
  • + 2
 This... I was getting frustrated with the judging but really this is just so fun to watch who cares who wins. It's impossible to judge this properly and appease everybody
  • + 5
 Unfortunetly riders have got to play to the judging, if they want to score high, this isnt joyride, its not all about the tricks, as smooth and dialed as Semenuks run was it lacked the huge balls out style of the podium runners, its clear what the judges are looking for, its up to the riders to deliver that.
Dont get me wrong that run from Semenuk was freaking awesome but i'm not a judge.
I think Sorge's run was a good balance and deserving of the podium, however i think the scoring was way too high too quick, in some cases riders have decided its not even worth the risk of trying a 2nd run... massively dissapointing for us watching...Frown
  • + 1
 Maybe they should have artistic and technical scores, like gymnastics; technical score for being fast, artistic score for tricks.

Btw, so much for broadband; I'm on a 130Mb connection and broadcast is stuttering all the time regardless of resolution..
  • + 2
 Is there actually a weighted criteria though? Like diving or gymnastics. I know they talk about amplitude, style, speed but is it broken down with weightings etc? It seems pretty haphazard...
  • + 33
 Fuck it, this judging is balls......
  • + 31
 Oh my word. Semenuk! The whole run was amazing and even the little nose tap/drift there mid way just shows the incredible bike control he has. He's just on another level.
  • + 32
 Semenuk deserves a 100 with this bs scoring
  • - 3
 Seminuks was great and all but it was mostly a slopestyle run, the top guys went huge and did tricks.
  • + 2
 Brandon still had some pretty techy shit to ride down (like that first drop which was also huge...)

The top guys did, but they all lacked the line difficulty in a sense if you ask me. Well, Sorge did do a better job there than Andreu or Aggy, but yes, everything was overscored in general.
  • + 27
 Did anyone else hear the 3 mins of live audio leading up to the broadcast? Pat and some other guys taking bets and Pat talking about taking a dump. Haha. Not exactly professional Red Bull but funny at least. You'd think they'd know if they broadcasting or not...
  • + 8
 I want in on the $50 buy in!!
  • + 14
 Ahh yes, Red Bull as we know and love them! HUGE and professional setup - operated by drunken chimpanzees...
  • + 30
 BIZET, nooooooo
  • + 3
 So close!
  • + 4
 Superb run until the double flip landing, which was still close to pulling it. Holding his broken hand looked a bit gore.
  • + 21
 Zink was under pointed, his run deserved to be a legend run. Zink, don't stop, it was just a mistake of judges. I'm old rider too, now 15 years of schredding, and I trully uderstand the decision, You got wonderful beautiful wife and gorgeus doughter. Keep save,You don't need to do anything to be a legend. You are right now.
  • + 19
 I can't understand how Sorge's and others runs could be better than Semenuk's.. Than run was absolutely perfect! Speed, flat drop, oppo 360, flip can, 540 + so much style. Judges must be blind. I hope he will add 720cork and end this mess.
  • - 1
 remember they not only judging you by style
  • + 18
 Norbs proposing after his rampage run. What a boss.
  • + 17
 Chubey snapped his bike too? Morpheus is gonna go out of business
  • + 2
 I'm pretty sure they were there too? No team support? No back up bikes? I think he was riding a borrowed spesh demo for his second run and he didn't look happy! Rampage is the big show. They def shoulda had a few extra rigs ready to go.
  • + 13
 Not really live, if you go to dvr mode on the player you can watch first two runs at 30min mark, and please red bull remove the standings tab because it's already showing the score of the first 7 riders!!! spoiler alert!!
  • + 1
 Are they only playing it live? Anyone know?
  • + 2
 They're running at least 7 riders behind LIVE (and underlining the fact by having the results/standings listed before the rider finishes).
  • + 14
 How did the scores get that high so fast? It's just round 1. WTF.
  • + 4
 Gravity bongs. lol
  • + 14
 Low scoring for both r-dog and brendog
  • + 12
 I guess they don't like riders with a canine nickname
  • + 2
 Too be honest R-dog, my favorite freerider, looked reserved, and kept a lot in the can. Wind maybe, hard when you're first run, so maybe he took a cruiser to see how things pan out and will beast his 2nd run. Brendo's run was kind of a meh too.
  • + 14
 +.25 for adding a one foot can? what the hell is that?!
  • + 10
 He should have done 400 one footed cans for the perfect 100
  • + 11
 HS Paul Bas !!!!!!!!
  • + 4
 Was going massive...
  • + 5
 I wish they could get a measurement of how deep he went
  • + 1
 Looked like he saved it, then hit a roller and went airborne, then OTB.
  • + 2
 Flight for lifed him, said he was conscious, but had a broken leg maybe. Best line of the day IMHO.
  • + 8
 Gonna watch at work. If Semenuk pulls off a flawless run a la Crankworx I'm going ape shit (while everyone else in the office wonders WTF is up with that guy......)
  • + 6
 Actually I just went ape shit watching Bizet....WTF!!!
  • + 1
 According to the standings tab, it's worth watching
  • + 9
 Loving how HUGE tommy G went.
  • + 7
 Jesus Red Bull, wtf is happening on that stream... Fast forwarded clips, static camera that no one knows is on, and hot mic audio about nothing.
  • + 2
 it really is unbelievably low rent broadcasting
  • + 7
 Wtf first score? Way too low for that run from Howard
  • + 7
 rheeder is being R.O.B.B.E.D
  • + 7
 Zink got ROBBED...... Fest inspired judging?
  • + 1
 This...Zinks run was narly
  • + 5
 Redbull media player, is like showing up to the trail and realizing you forgot your helmet, gloves, beer, and that your bike has two flat tires...
  • + 6
 That sucked for the Claw, but that is the best way to DNF a run.
  • + 6
 Congratulations Norbs????
  • + 10
 I'm voting for Polaris Razor wedding present!
  • + 6
 Norbs... robbed again....
  • + 4
 OK, she said yes, not robbed!
  • + 3
 beats them all with a proposal at the bottom
  • + 6
 Damn, Antoine Bizet! So sick.
  • + 3
 So stoked for norbys run and congrats on the proposal to the missus, the wedding ceromony will be at the next rampage at the trophy ceromony ????
And fffffffffaaaaaaahhhhhhhccccccckkkkkkk yeah SEMENUK KILLED IT
  • + 3
 Anyone else who was watching DVR while the event was still on get booted? Paused for a pee break and now not only do I know the finals result, it wont let me watch the event. WTF redbull.
  • + 4
 I am literally shaking my head the whole time I watch this. sooo scary just to watch super pumped zink got that run though!!!
  • + 9
 I almost get a panic attack every time I watch Zink live lol
  • + 9
 If anyone was robbed by the scoring today it was Zink. Not enough credit given to the narlyness of it.
  • + 2
 Zinks run had it all imo, he should have gotten 1st, Lecondeguy 2nd and Semenuk 3rd, but what do I know....
  • + 5
 Cam McCaul is the only relevant judge with a clue. The rest of them are who exactly?
  • + 1
 Best live thing to watch on tv ever! Last year wining line is nearly the same for top 3 this year. Aggy and andreu did well, just protect line and add few tricks. Bizet coming for the first year on this spot, qualifying and trowing in final like he did, is the thing of this year. Only rider to flip the canyon, 3 times, first front flip landed, then first attempt on double back. The aggy mania is over, cant wait for next year.
  • + 1
 My feed on my phone keeps freezing and then going to a 5 week old superbike race, then on the laptop is slow and jumpy, hopefully the iPad casting to the TV will work! I've essentially missed everybodies first run, let's hope the seconds are all good!!
  • + 5
 ZIIIINKKKK!!!!! HOLY FUC*!!!
  • + 5
 Damn the coverage this year is awesome. Great commentating.
  • + 2
 Is there any chance redbull could implement some kind of 30 second rewind button on their media player? with a 5 hour video its really awkward to make the system rewind a tiny bit back without it snapping to the Live feed.
  • + 3
 Hey red bull your tv app is a POS! WHERE DID THE REPLAY GO?! I wait all day and now it's gone WTF! (YES IM PISSED!)
  • + 5
 NORBS GOT HITCHED!
  • + 2
 fuck the red bull player! cant watch more than 4 minutes without it buffering or the sound shutting off and not turning back on without refreshing the page.
  • + 2
 I said basically the same thing and got neg-propped for it. I love the event, hate the "streaming".
  • + 4
 Time to be super side-tracked at work today...
  • + 3
 Somebody needs to tell her she is love and we can hear everything she is saying.
  • + 2
 she truly is love.
  • + 4
 and.... NORBS is a gentleman..
  • + 4
 YEAH NORBS!!! awesome run!
  • + 3
 Norbs proposed to his gf on air lol
  • + 5
 reeder got robbed
  • + 4
 "The young Brett Rheeder looking very very... quality"
  • + 4
 What happened to Godziek?? he was pre-qualified
Out with injury???
  • + 2
 The judging inflated pretty quick but one for sure - it doesn't matter if you're defending champ like Andreu or a newbie like Reynolds, Fest is the best training for Rampage!
  • + 2
 Someone could actually reach a 98 score but then it will feel like the contest is a joke. The runs this year were almost the same as last year and nobody scored that high.
  • + 3
 Sooooooooooooo bummed for TMac, I thought this was his year with the 3rd place qualifying run and that huge ass drop!
  • + 2
 After run 1, in my opinion, Zink, Semenuk, Aggy and Andreu should all be in the top 4.
  • + 2
 Anyone know if there will be a re run posted of this stupid work got in the way. Still avoiding results till I watch it
  • + 2
 Andreu and Aggy should forget about the wind and the competition and make a run following each other...It would be sick!!!
  • + 2
 If Red-Bull rampage competitors where animals.

 Redbull player is crashing!
  • + 4
 Norbz got enganged.
  • + 3
 anyone else having feed issues ?
  • + 1
 who isn't!
  • + 2
 TMac in practice: 50ft to face, knocked himself out cold and out of the comp
  • + 3
 How did Remy beat Brendan with that dead sailor run? Great "Judging".
  • + 1
 Shoot I forgot PB is the bastion of 'freeride flick' fans.
  • + 2
 Brendog got stalled out after the back flip, gotta keep it smooth.
  • + 7
 34 ft gap to 18 ft lead up to 24ft gap backflipped. Stalled a bit, sure, but nobody is linking up danger gaps like that. Maybe if he suicide no handed it tho....... Razz
  • + 2
 There we go! respectable score considering his line is simply insane with zero room for set up.
  • + 3
 f*ck ME, the standings are ahead of the live feed WTF!!??
  • + 2
 I'm really digging R-Dog's Yamaha inspired paint job on his bike/helmet.
  • + 2
 No joy on live feed down here in darkest Africa...
  • + 0
 I has so happy to see that Sal Masekela guy finally wasnt there commentating...and now he is, smh. That guy doesn't know anything about any sport he broadcasts...
  • - 2
 The scores are way too high, however, I agree with how they are judging this...this isn't a slopestyle contest and jump heavy lines like Brandon's shouldn't win. The tech lines with huge drops which also incorporate the big booters is what Rampage is about and judged on.
  • + 8
 Brandon's line is pretty tech and steep at the start. He carried wicked speed along the ridge and was able to style everything out while stomping his tricks. I thought his line was way heavier than Aggy's but Aggy did boost some other features a little bigger. super hard to judge but I was definitely feeling Semenuk's more.
  • + 1
 Somebody gets first place, but every rider going down that face is a winner .
  • + 3
 Norbs got... Engaged?
  • + 2
 Norbz & semenuk yesssssssss!!!!
  • + 1
 What happened to Mcgarry? He went a safety run twice. Big Grin Anybody knows how is Paul Bas exactly?
  • + 2
 Paul Basigoitia needs our support. Zink posted about it 4 hours ago on his instagram. He had surgery on his t12 vertebrae during 9 hours. He still doesn't have feeling in his legs. He has to be strong. Send him healing vibes with me please !
  • + 2
 What happened to Doerfling? Can anyone tell me?
  • + 1
 Crashed on yt step up doing super seater in qualies.
  • + 1
 thanks man
  • + 1
 How about Bernard Kerr doing canyon gap to nose manual? I'd fall off my seat if the lad does that!
  • + 1
 here we go Semenuk!! not usually one to go for top dogs but god I love watching him ride
  • + 1
 Was it just me or was the U.S. flag wrong on Howard's run? Lol love the Claudio practice run.
  • - 2
 What is the point of a 2nd run? There shouldn't be one at this kind of event anyway. And now with first run scores in the 96? So whack. But props to the boys. This is the most progressive rampage by far. Everyone is throwing down.
  • + 1
 Paul Bas broken arm they say .
  • + 4
 Super bummed for him. He was on course to get a top 3 spot before the fall. His step down was MASSIVE!
  • + 1
 Bummer about Paul - he had an awesome run going!
  • + 6
 Someone go measure that please, he went unbelievably deep!
  • + 2
 I thought they said it was Bizet with a broken arm and they were waiting to hear about Paul. Or is it that they both broke arms?
  • + 1
 Bizet broken arm. They are looking at Paul's Leg.

  • + 1
 I want to know what Sorge pulled, I can't wait to watch this tonight
  • + 10
 @Darkstar63 i watched it and i didn't saw anything worth a 90+. But thats just my $ .2
  • + 5
 Yea all these 90's have me wondering big time about the scoring.
  • + 6
 I really have no clue anymore. I mean probs to sorge, but the biggest hit was a tuck backflip over the rzr which also Thomas G did but i feel like Thomas' run was better overall. I am also not quiet sure about Aggy. Semenuk and TG should be ontop right now imho. (After the first set of runs) But i am no Rampage judge, right? So what do i know.
  • + 3
 Yes scoring is strange this year......
