Follow my trip to Rampage through this video. Lots of good times riding and training with my friends the week before the event. On the final day, everything went well, I had a lot of pleasure during my runs and I hope to be back next year to show you more!

 All BOS suspension squeaks for some reason. I love the suspension, but the squeaking is a little odd.

 @vesania: Sounds like a whistle when its rebounding.

 @danspring: It's mostly their shocks that chirp.. I had a Bos Stoy I while and chirped quite a bit but you get used to and I ended up kinda liking it after a while Smile

 One of my favourite riders to watch shred at Rampage this year!! He was so casual and fearless guinea pigging the top gnarl. We should call it Vinny Pigging!! Respect.

 Sh*t that drop in might even be more sketchy than the Zink/Strait drop.
Somehow I gotta believe that none of these guys are truly ready and comfortable to hit their finals run.
So many things to link up perfect. My nerves would be shot on day one

 Yeah its hard to compare because sketchy entrance vs. less sketchy entrance but gnarlier line although both are f*cked up beyond reason.... I don't know. Overall that was the most enjoyable Rampage edit I've watched. All those different lines they got to ride before the event and Andreau's being particularly scary/sketchy.... wtf. That's quite the warm up for the event.

 Seriously, someone please explain why his suspension sounds like the bouncy cousin to Avid brakes. I the scenes where he's riding with someone else, you can tell which one is him from the squeak!

 Wow terrifying to say the least. Especially the guy at 4:11 who just about casually kills Vinny T...

 Rebound set very slow? Sounds like it is, scary if You realize how much work susspension have on that kind of terrain. Priority not to die after landing 60feet drop, not to handle in terrain.

 Based from this, Redbull does not do justice with their coverage! I held my breath a few times in this video, and shouted a few times to,

 Sounds like he replaced his rear shock with a rubber ducky!

 That's the sound suspension makes when it's scared.
