 This event should be covered like a presidential election. Bourdon, Aggy or Andreu shouldn't be able to take a dump without us knowing it. What i saying is, stream qualis next years, pretty please?
  • 106 0
 Streaming qualis would get as many viewers as the finals, easy!
  • 52 0
 Streaming the qualifier would be sick, but damn if they haven't done a better job this year than ever before.

 It sure feels like the best year yet! tomorrow will be SICK
  • 15 1
 I know this is repetitive, but stream the damn qualies!
  • 6 1
 But to be fair there seems to be more coverage of rampage than previous years, so many articles, I just want to see more vids of the diff trails, but coverage of quali would be great and more coverage of pratice
  • 45 0
 A covarage of every rider and his line, like a mini-documentary, would be really sweet. Atleast the top ten qualifiers. Ten minutes of digging, testing, plenty of "Duuuuuuude", "gnarly bro", "Sick", all to some killer tunes by Le Betré.

See RedBull, i should work for you guys and make shit happen.

 I feel cheated right now, not being able to see all of these riders.
  • 7 1
 I'd easily pay to watch qualifiers if it means I get to act like I'm working for two days in a row

 **DICLAIMER** IT IS NOT A LINK TO THE STREAMING
I will just leave this herehttps://instagram.com/p/83wYwfBR8M/ that means somewhere, someone saw a streaming of the event

 I wouldn't honestly watch the Qualis, I am actually thinking not to watch the thing tomorrow. Last year Lacondaguy was taking forever to decide if he was going to run or not, the year before Strait and Zink took also forever for the wind to settle up, they didn't run either if I remember correctly. I am actually starting to accept that Rampage is kind of a flat show. IMO. The commentators were terrible but it was a terrible fun though.
  • 10 1
 www.univision.com/deportes/deportes-extremos/red-bull-rampage a bit rough and ready, but better than nothing...
  • 14 1
 @Narro2 well f*ck off then. Its a risky event and if the rider wants to take a few minutes for the wind to die down before sending a 25ft. drop or 70ft. canyon gap, then all for it. The rider's safety is above your expectations of entertainment... but yeah I agree with you about the commentators, that was death to the ears, haha.
  • 6 1
 @Narro2 Please tell me you are using some kind of bizarre sarcasm type humour in your comment.

 @jamescmy I have to say it was genius finding a live qualifying stream, such a f***ing pity I didn't get to it until it was all over !!
  • 2 0
 Same here... Found it and saw the quali results posted...
  • 31 1
 @Narro2 Totally agree dude.Guys competing at the highest level in the sport, doing the gnarliest lines around with commentators that can't help but be emotional during such an event is dumb. Waiting on riders because jumps and step downs are so big that wind factors into landing is only for people that are bored. In fact I wish they would stream the Qualies just so you and me could boycott them, I say we go watch some Golf.
  • 7 2
 Now thats sarcasm ^^^^^^^^ !!!!!
  • 6 9
 Just sharing what I have seen these 2 last years that i gave Rampage a chance, the app wouldnt stop promoting it.
Do you guys think it will change this year?
Ps:I mean no disrespect to any riders and I wish everyone to come out just fine.
  • 10 1
 No, it won't change. It'll still be horrible. Don't watch.

 Rémy Métailler's POV: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5riyzTeWuro He looks disturbingly comfortable already. What a beast.

 Stream the qualies, stream the digging, stream the banter, stream the riders sleeping!!!!! During Rampage just stream the whole site 24/7!!!!

 This ain't no artical I need to know what's going on

 Pat Parnell seems like a total douche compared to Cam. Oh well.... Go fill your cooler with Iced Lattes let Cam do the talking tomorrow please.

 My favorite quote
Cam: Nice style there, each rider is adding his own secret sauce.
Pat (In cocky undertone): I think you mean je ne sais quoi...
Cam: Uh ...yea sure

 Yall gotta watch nicholi's fall at 42:45 at this sketch replay link www.univision.com/deportes/deportes-extremos/red-bull-rampage

literally fell off a mountain face first

 This stream is absolutely mental. How is this even being broadcast anywhere?!
  • 2 0
 the announcer singing "sad french music" after Remi's run was priceless.. except Remi's score help up!
  • 2 0
 @wayfarersall, it happens quite a lot with less high-budget/more challenging broadcasts e.g. with the skiing FWT there are always mess-ups and you just see random camera angles/hear random people talking...funny that they’re doing it for Rampage qualies in the first place, though.
  • 2 0
 It's just weird. Like they're putting together a highlight reel from qualifying but the whole thing is being broadcast. I suppose they're ironing out all the things that could go wrong so the finals day is silky smooth.
  • 5 0
 ahh I can't get it to work!
  • 2 0
 It was working and now its not... someone must of tipped off RedBull about it Frown
  • 33 1
 I can literally not be more excited for this ..... GO CONOR MACFARLANE!!
  • 6 0
 Gutted he just missed out with 12th....so close!!!
  • 4 0
 I thought they let 12 through! Arrrgghh gutted for him indeed! Maybe if someone gets food poisoning... not that I wish sickness on any of the sick riders in the finals!
  • 1 0
 Yea, I saw that they allowed 12 before as well. Why the change?
  • 29 0
 No Doerfling and no Vink? NOOOOOO !!!
  • 8 0
 #WhereIsNico?!?!
  • 7 0
 Oh nooo! Doerfling's line was looking sweet; I wonder what happened?
  • 5 0
 Deorfling crashed doing a superman seat grab on the YT jump. Vink had a super bad crash on his insane roll in/drop up top.
  • 4 0
 So.. Is vink still alive?
  • 1 0
 Wow very big bad crash! Poor body...
  • 1 0
 Doerfling... not again...
  • 20 0
 TLDR
  • 18 0
 Lance Armstrong just took the top spot with Gary Fisher in 2nd and Stu Thomsen in 3rd
  • 18 1
 How many times did Aggy qualify in first? He won more qualies than Kyle won Finals Smile
  • 4 2
 Doesn't matter if you win practice. Hopefully he can hang in tough
  • 19 2
 Aggy is to Rampage what Bruni is to DHWC
  • 6 1
 Yeah, kind of... Everybody knows he is a threat... Just a matter of time for he to get the 1st place!!!

Hope it is this year!!! Remember his 360 from 2013? What was that?!?!
  • 15 1
 Holy shit Nicholi, so much respect for you for getting up that hill again after that gnarly crash! Mad props! That's worth more than sending some ridiculous trick... your time will come! Glad you're ok!!
  • 17 3
 Is it me or are the judges continuing to favor the Aggy/Andreu line? Things that keep me up at night
  • 10 7
 Must by why both of them went all "get off my lawn" on the other riders. Pretty childish if you ask me...
  • 2 1
 But without doubt it is the gnarliest line and last year nobody could match the flow and steeze of Andreu. He made it look effortless
  • 6 1
 did you watch Bizet's line? Way more gnar sauce on that burger my friend. Aggy had more bigger air but Antoine's was way more big mountain.
  • 3 0
 Agreed it did look big, I find it hard to tell from the on boards. I'm gutted Vink didn't qualify!
  • 12 0
 Well Bizet’s run was pretty darn good.

I still don’t understand why they don’t let him ride the FEST series. I mean, suicide drop, flat 3 and a sloooow backie on the canyon gap? Come on.
  • 7 1
 Because fest is a strange invite only club, is why.
  • 12 0
 Biggest respect goes to Nicholi ! He is truly an inspiration after his crash ! He used to be a BMX rider and now he rides rampage on a DH bike and even THAT crash cant stop him,unbelievable. RESPECT !!!
  • 13 0
 Bizet's second run had a sui drop, bflip the canyon and flat 3 on booter. for second place. What will it take to beat aggy?
  • 9 1
 A classic Bizet double backie? It’s crazy that I’m even suggesting that; you make a good point.
  • 7 0
 And Reynolds superman ober the canyon gap....ffs
  • 4 0
 Where is Doerfling?
  • 1 0
 @torero he didn’t qualify. First run around 65 points; on the second, he crashed near the bottom. Bummer.
  • 2 0
 Looks too flat to double but I've seen him do some very flat doubles on the Jump bike so maybe.
  • 2 0
 Exactly. A line is just a line. Hopefully they start to reward the tricks, and don't just play favourites with the one or two steeper lines again. Tough for all the riders that aren't "allowed" to ride the preferred line(s).
  • 4 0
 Insane tricks and actually looked less groomed than Aggy's too. Definitely robbed.
  • 11 0
 Holy moly - rogatkin over the bars and off a cliff. He looks like sh*t but I think he's going to ride his second run!
  • 1 0
 Huge respect for the guy
  • 9 0
 Congrats. You have officially found a worse format for presenting results than Scribd. (kidding...am excited to see those results though!)
  • 8 0
 Not only did they give out email addresses and cell #'s of athletes but the 'results' looked like a 13 year old trying to put a spreadsheet together. Yikes
  • 11 1
 I'm so happy to see Bearclaw right up there.
  • 7 0
 Anyone know why it is only the top 11 qualifiers when the graphic below states the top 12 qualifiers ride in the final? Also anyone know what happened to Doerfling? His line looked pretty gnarly, wondering if he crashed out.
  • 1 1
 The graphic is the exempt riders - the guys who don't need to qualify because they're invited in.
  • 4 0
 Exactly. What happened to the 12th man?
  • 3 0
 Doerfling was scored around 65 for his first run, and then on the second he bailed on one of the manmade kickers whilst trying some no foot can or similar (I couldn’t really tell because of the resolution)...so annoying.
  • 2 0
 Where's Vink?
  • 9 1
 I don't want to be the cynic but with all the coverage on Agassiz doesn't it seem the media was influencing the whole result? Just a thought
  • 2 0
 I don't think it's crazy to think that. The judges are human too so if they are seeing the media coverage it could play a roll. I though the same thing last year with Andreu. Seemed like there was a similar hype and you got the feeling that if he was winning if he landed his Run clean. Could also be because he has a sick run and everyone knew it.
  • 1 0
 I think between that and the line bias, you are spot on. Tough for everyone else.
  • 12 3
 If creativity is valued, aggy not win.
  • 7 0
 Stoked that Tyler made it in.

Good to see Darren claw his way into the finals.

Who's going to ride Vink's line now?
  • 7 0
 Vink crashed one of his runs
  • 13 0
 and crash hardly on the big first drop apparently. I hope he is Ok p.vitalmtb.com/photos/captions/1239/max_vink.jpg?1444934992

 Let's hope he is ok
  • 4 4
 Don't hope he's not!

 Can't believe Tom isn't able to ride again, first Rampage last year, then Joyride and now this, Tom needs some better luck!
  • 1 0
 It's proof he's one of the hardest working and gnarliest guys these days. He's always pushing it, hope he feels better soon,
  • 7 0
 holy shit that Canyon flip was smoother than a gravy sandwich
  • 7 1
 Brendog and Sam Reynolds in the Finals, this just keeps getting better !!!!
  • 6 0
 Thomas Genon really deserves a bit most publicity, he is consistently at the top!
  • 6 1
 I can't believe 2 out of the top three diamond series leaders have to qualify. What gets you prequalified?
  • 2 2
 Paul Bas eh?
  • 3 2
 getting top 12ish on the previous rampage, being one of the last 3 champions or so
  • 1 0
 They seem to make up the qualifying rules every year: "top 5 from last year, plus 2,3 and 8 from 2013, the top 3 from the last 2.5 years of fmb, two fest best trick winners, and 7 wildcard spots." I guess they are running the competition though, and have to keep their sponsors happy and all...
  • 7 0
 Where's Vink?!
  • 2 0
 crashed his first run
  • 5 0
 No Peat, No DoerfLing in finals. Did they crash. Man I hate having a job sometimes.
  • 3 0
 Doerfling was scored around 65 on his first run, and then for the second he ejected on one of the manmade boosters whilst trying no foot can I think..really frustrating.
  • 6 0
 ..any news from Conor MacFarlane?
  • 4 0
 Is there any word on if there will be a video put together later of all the qualification runs? Would love to see some of the rookie rampage riders and how they did.
  • 4 0
 Anyone found any footage of Rogatkin's crash? I watched it on Univision, but its unavailable now. Gnarliest thing I've ever seen...
  • 2 0
 It would be really nice if someone who was there could give us a quick, two or three sentence write up of what happened in each rider's run. What happened to Doerfling for instance? If he made it down his run there is no way he wouldn't have qualified.
  • 5 0
 Still 2 inches of travel left in that fork, thats a firm rig right there.
  • 7 2
 Remy for the win. Someone toss him a beer can mid canyon gap.....please
  • 3 0
 He was so. Damn. Fast.
  • 4 0
 Where is the qualification live stream? I feel the coverage has been great until the event started...
  • 2 0
 Don't see the point in qualifying for the event. More people are pre-qualified than those who have made the finals. Why can't they just use today to sort the start order for tomorrow?

 T MAC only gets a 82 after doing the one of the 2 biggest drops. Sounds like hes gonna get robbed again.
  • 3 0
 key word, again. But I don't think so man. He had more in him when he placed 5th but didn't get his second run because of weather. I think he's got more in the tank.

  • 2 0
 Atleast he went out swinging.
  • 1 0
 Well for the contest to win the SRAM drivetrain I picked Semenuk, Doerfling,and Vink. Looks like 2 of those are not even in the finals. Darts at a dartboard I guess haha.

 What happened to Nico's death drop? I thought that was going to get him in the running? Did he crash??

 I'd like to know as well.
  • 2 0
 If everyone has run then it looks like he didn't qualify for the finals. Which means he must have crashed out.

Be nice if they just gave us the entire run down and say that the top 11 move to tomorrow... even though I thought it was top 12?
  • 1 0
 Sadly he was scored around 65 for his first run; on the second he pressed eject on one of the manmade senders at the bottom whilst trying a no foot can or something like that (I couldn’t really tell because of the resolution)...really annoying.
  • 1 0
 Bummer. That dude had a huge run set up. He would have been fun to watch in the finals. But I'm glad he didn't bump R-Dogg out of the finals. Happy to see both of the Aptos locals up there and happy to see some Bell riders in the finals too. Woot!

  • 1 0
 semenuk, rheeder, and mcgarry are all pre-qualified
  • 2 0
 Yup. Nicholi Rogatkin was at 22. He must have crashed. I'm bummed to see that. He's an exciting dude and he's one of the top 4 guys when it comes to tricks. Would have loved to see a cash roll on a big step down. He's got some sick spins and front flips. Etc. Was really hoping to see him make it through. Would have been the other end of the spectrum to the guys that are in there going fast and huge.
