THAT'S IT, THAT'S ALL
Those who were able to stick around for the delayed Red Bull Rampage finals here in Virgin, Utah were greatly rewarded today; the riders threw down on quality dirt and in perfect weather. The Red Bull flags at the top of the course flapped in the wind as riders dropped in continuously to the shock and amazement of everyone, producing big tricks and big crashes. The camaraderie that had grown between organizers, athletes, media and fans, in thwarting Mother Nature and ending this season with a bang despite the difficulties of flash floods and lightening could be felt in the air. Spirits were high as Andreu stoked the crowd on his victory lap and Zink high fived the audience after his 3'ing his drop. Kids navigated the finish corral asking for autographs of their heroes and not wanting the event to be over yet. We felt the same way as we drove away one last time on the dusty and windy road. Exhausted from the last few days and looking forward to being home at the end of a long season, our team was still sad to have it behind us. We find ourselves already talking about what next year may bring. Check out all of our images from the Red Bull Rampage 2014 here.
