Red Bull Rampage - Cam Zink wins it!

Oct 3, 2010
by Tyler Maine  
The 2010 Red Bull Rampage - The Evolution has just wrapped up and it is Cam Zink standing at the top of this year's podium. Gee Atherton and Darren Berrecloth round out the top 3. Thanks to everyone that tuned in to the Live Feed and the 1000's that voted online on the riders' runs!

Check out all the results!World’s Best Freeride Mountain Bikers Ride the Storm in the Utah Desert

With wild skies above him and 1,500 feet of vertical drop below, Cameron Zink persevered over the obstacles to become the 2010 Red Bull Rampage champion. Twenty-one of mountain biking’s best riders threw down all they had while battling wild weather, but when the skies cleared it was Zink who took home the trifecta – the contest win, Utah Sports Commission Best Trick Award and the Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour season overall title.

Stars (and clouds) align for Zink

Zink 3's The Oakley Icon Sender

After a season of highs and lows with big contest wins and tough injuries, Zink went through another roller coaster ride throughout the day. During his first run, Zink attempted a 360 off the Oakley Icon Sender custom feature, but took a hard hit that cracked his helmet and was unsure if he could do another run. Once the medics cleared him, he was energized to go again, only to be delayed a couple hours by gusty wind, rain and threatening clouds. But as the sun came out, Zink dug deep and threw down a perfect run that included a flawless 360 off the intimidating Oakley Icon Sender that sent him nearly 40 feet below. That massive move, which also won him Best Trick honors, was the only thing that could top the UK’s Gee Atherton, who was seeking redemption after making the 2008 event finals and then suffering an injury in practice that prevented him from riding. Atherton’s racing background was a definite advantage that resulted in a fast, controlled line that wowed the judges, along with his huge transfer to wallride. Third place went to Darren “the Claw” Berrecloth who hands down had the most technical line from top to bottom.

Over 2,000 fans hiked into the remote desert venue to witness a contest that showcased a mix of rugged, natural downhill terrain and manmade obstacles. A team of builders led by Paddy Kay spent a month digging, building and grooming the course that would become the riders’ playground. Course builder and former Red Bull Rampage competitor Josh Bender liked what he saw, “I was really excited on the utilization of all the features we built on the course – it was great to see the progression of the sport stepped up a couple levels.” With jaw dropping tricks like Greg Watt’s backflip stepdown and Atherton’s gap to wallride, the fans were given a show that could only be produced in unparalleled terrain of the Zion desert mountains.

A perfect storm
The finals on Sunday almost came to a halt after wild weather caused a couple hour delay. Saturday’s practice was also cut short after an intense wind storm that was described as no less than “the apocalypse.” The riders charged on however, heading up to the gate as soon as the last rain drop cleared and pushed through an intense second run. Zink summarized the challenges faced by all, “It’s so hard to get into the mode. Your run has to be dialed from the top, you can’t just work your way into it and then be stylish towards the bottom. You have to pin it right from the top. I guess I picked up some contest skills and determination along the way because I did pretty well today!” Atherton agrees, “Second today at Rampage was nuts. It was fun, it was a crazy contest and I couldn’t have been second place to a better guy than Zink.”

After 18 stops on the FMB tour, Zink’s overall championship left him on cloud nine, “Being Rampage champion is a dream. It’s one of the first real mountain bike contests ever and if I were to tell anyone – this is what mountain biking is, this contest would be it. So to win this is the most amazing thing in the world. In all honesty I’d rather win Red Bull Rampage than any other event.”

Perhaps the day was best summarized by fourth place finisher Andreu Lacondeguy of Spain, who is known around the world for his jaw-dropping tricks. When talking about what Zink did, he had one thing to say, “That was the wildest thing I’ve ever seen!”

  • + 17
 Well Gee is sponsered by redbull and he hit the gnarly hip. its debatable.
  • + 9
 my jaw just dropped when zinc landed that 360 off the icon drop, good stuff, and claw had a great line, atleast he got the podium.
  • + 18
 Zink nailed it! Come on, give the Claw second place! Gees run was ok but not that good to be second. And he just pussed out.

flag bisk (Oct 3, 2010 at 16:43) (Below Threshold)
 Andreau bent his 888's, Hopkins snapped his 888's and BDoerfling snapped his 888's... bad day for Marzocchi. Sick event, but fuck off should gee have been 2nd... should have been berrecloth 1st. Zinc 2nd. Andreau 3rd... Zinc's 3 was sick, but there wasn't much else going on in his run.
  • + 10
 i think claw probably shoulda took second even though he was a little sketchy at the start and didnt finish right away and it was too bad Aggy went really nose heavy off the sender i was really excited to see what he was gonna do but all in all i gotta give huge props to cam Zink because of that 360, i woulda been satisfied if he just walked away from the first one and went to the hospital with the concussion but no he headed back to the top and nailed it i cant say enough about that. Well done Cam well done.
  • + 6
 absolutely amazing competition... i was yelling at my computer on berrecloth's last run at the very top when he almost fell... darren shoulda got 2nd but it was a close call with him and gee. zink's 360 blew my mind.

  • + 22
 Cam McCaul rocked the mic! ("That damn harry bush! This ain't the 1970's anymore.")Smile
  • + 15
 zink should get best trick and 2nd, the claw had by far the best run, with gee in 3rd for style, flow and speed
  • + 3
 I completely agree with transitionrob.
  • + 15
 Yeeeaahh Zink!!..so awesome earned the win bigtime!...whats up Gee?..why not a second run?
  • + 4
 i knwo that would have stepped it up tho if had tried but i suppose he didnt wanna risk injury
  • + 9
 Pretty sure Commencal pays him big money to win World Cups, not Rampage. Has to be in top form to keep winning
  • + 5
 I guess he was pretty happy with his run, if he didn't think he could do much to improve on it theres no point taking any unnecassary risks.
  • + 2
 true...
  • + 4
 His bread is buttered elsewhere and we need at least two Athertons up and running for a while. Hopefully three in no time!!
  • + 1
 yea hows Dan doin anybody heard?..hopefully alote better!
  • + 17
 360 was godly!!!
  • + 3
 Props to Zink, pretty much got perfect rotation both times too.
  • - 1
 In the first run he landed 360 perfectly, and after landing the rear wheel slipped... I do not know the rest because after Zink's 1st run I turned off the PC, but knowing Zink's rideing I guess that in the second run he made the 360 without any problems. Cause I didn't saw the rest, can someone tell me what happend with Mike Hopkins?
  • + 1
 Mike Hopkins came up short on the canyon gap. He dropped his bike and landed on his feet-straight to shoulder.
  • + 10
 i'm speehless... this Event just went to the moon... i was watching the thing live on my Iphone 4 while at the grocery store.. and when Zink went for his first 3.. i was like "holy shit!" so loud.. everyone was looking at me weird...
seriously i'm blown away at the live coverage.. the Riders Ability, strength, courage, and the how this style of riding is and always will be the main trunk of the mountain biking tree.
i'm stoked, thank you Riders.. and thank you redbull and oakley
  • + 4
 at some points during the show.. my body released adrenaline ... i felt like i was actually there.. and riding through the riders motions.. unbelievable ... just fucken unreal.
  • + 1
 While your points may well be valid, nobody cares that you have an iphone 4
  • + 1
 and thats exactly the main point of my story.. bravo

 the redbull player was flash how did your iphone play it?

 +1 iphones dont play flash. at all.
  • + 1
 Redbull tv App.. Awesome! it was cool being mobile and still watching the event.
i realized i should have said "iphone" instead of iphone 4... it sounds like i'm bragging.. but i couldnt give a flying f*ck if used too much or not enough detail in my sentence for you, so Facetime me on my Iphone4 so i can flip you the bird el-nombre

 If I had an iphone, I totally would

 Berrecloth owned!!

 that shit was as real as it comes. never seen anything like it! zinks 360 was simply amazing i agree, and gee/gracia were as smooth as silk, but the bears line and skill was unparralelled
  • + 9
 What a sick comp. I was soooo happy Claw got podium. Although Gee landed the quarter trans. Claws run was waaaaay better. Next time for the live feed Red bull needs more Bandwidth. The feed absolutely sucked, I have a new computer with the highest speed internet. Apart from that, I enjoyed the viewing...
  • + 9
 Absolutely pissed with the Live Feed! I sat at my computer for 2 hours trying to watch the event! It would never load through all the way and it would play for about 5 seconds and then freeze and when I went to refresh the page it would do the same thing! Veryy frustrated!
  • + 6
 did u try redbull live or freecaster? Im guessing pinkbikes servers were just soo overloaded. i got near perfect coverage the whole time except for the beginning and some parts
  • + 2
 mine was jacked too..sat there from 12:00 to 4:00 stop and go..pissed me off bigtime..im sure the dvd will be the shit tho!..cant wait for that
  • + 2
 Mine was the same. I did Freecaster, here etc. They all screwed up for me
  • + 8
 The transmission had problems right at the beginning which caused tons of our user and those on partner sites to reload their pages intensively to try to get a working video stream. This chain reaction caused pinkbike to get pulled down temporarily. I brought it back up and after that there were no troubles at pinkbike. I did pull the vote feed off other sites as I though that was the initial issue, but it was not. The vote system was up up and running on pinkbike and logged 1000s of votes. We'll have full results shortly. The chat was solid with some rooms with 100s of users in them chatting at once. It was the same feed on all sites. Fantastic event and Zinc, you're the man!
  • + 1
 way to go radek you that man

 I had good luck on my computer after the initial dump.
  • + 1
 Pretty good all the way through on Freecaster in the UK apart from the initial problems.
  • + 12
 holy crap props to dclaw for holding on
  • + 11
 The Claw should have won!!!!
  • + 14
 Zinks 360 was revolutionary on something that big Darren deserved 2nd but definatly not 1st
  • + 2
 Zink one uped him. Claw can 360 big shit too, but didn't!
  • + 1
 i think claw should have come 2nd, Gee's run was highly over-rated
  • + 5
 Fuck no Gee was the only guy to stomp that hip line
  • + 17
 All that Gee did was jump off more than anyone else, he clearly too the hardest line (as nobody else managed it or would try it), he was simply the most fluid rider by a country mile, he made the final hip look simple, but remember he dropped the start that others rolled, he did no backflips or 360's (Slope style tricks), but did do an insane hip, drop, wallride (probably the biggest ever hit in competition) and in doing that took on some good air, as they said in commentary he was jumping and hopping off everything like a bunny, sure there was a comment about his wheels hardly being on the ground.
Guess he killed in on 3 or the 4 criteria. Not like he rolled into a single trick did a 360 then a hip jump that everyone was hitting!!!!!
  • + 5
 Yeah Zink did a big 3 but that was pretty much it, nothing huge and burly. The Claw on the other hand had the most technical run there and it was huge! Plus he even popped a 3 in there. The rampage is a big mountain comp not a slopestyle comp so in hines-sight the Claw should have taken it with his run.
  • + 11
 I wish every sunday could be RAMPAGE SUNDAY!
  • + 7
 Thanks to everyone for sending it so hard for our entertainment and the progression of the sport. Zink's 3? Good god man! Epic!

 Decent scores - great runs and overall pretty good feed despite the initial glitches. The only thing that sucked was Brad Ewen - everything he said was painful - I think he belongs with the other airhead announcers on WWF. Next time, shut up and let Cam do all the talking!
  • + 1
 Yeah, he was trying way to hard and without his cue cards he would have had no clue who anyone was. Riding events should be announced by RIDERS.
  • + 3
 I like the guy...
  • + 4
 haha no doubt! he would say somethin then cam would laugh and wait for him to finish talkin then correct him. like the canyon hes like "OH MY HE CAME UP SHORT AGAIN IT LOOKS LIKE" cam laughs waits for the replay and hes like "see he actually lands it perfect" countless times this happened.
  • + 2
 Cut the guy some slack, the job sure as hell isn't easy and he did a damn fine job of keeping me entertained.
  • + 1
 yeah he was straight up brutal. Captain obvious. I felt bad for him. He tried hard but Cam could have definitely held down the whole show himself. Awesome job by him.
  • + 1
 To be fair, when they were reading out the scoring rules Brad went 1st and said the first rule, then Cam went but skipped to the 3rd rule lol
  • + 1
 Brad Ewen's whispering voice every now and then creeped me out!
  • + 9
 Scores were all well deserved. Great contest.
  • + 4
 Amazing Day good top 3 but bearclaw got chinsed out hard! like common who bucks on the start but hangs on to it like that then rips up the whole course being one of the only ppl to wall ride today and throw alittle bit of everything in one run finishing it with a nasty 3 drop. hands down to zink for nailin that 3 off the icon step down.
  • - 1
 darren rode the same shit he's rode forever and that wallride was not really very awesome plus he's a temper tantrum throwing nancy braaaap
  • + 4
 Major props to Zink & Claw, I would say their runs were' almost equal, Zink for the HUGE 360 off the Oakley sender, & Claw for his gnarly line & that pretty huge 360. The judges were crap though, Gee's run was good but it had nothing on Berrecloth.
  • + 0
 Amen! I'll second that.
  • + 4
 I was happy with those results just because there was 3 different styles on the podium. I hate it when it comes down to a best trick for an event like this. Thanks for having this live Pinkbike!! Made for a great afternoon! Big Grin
  • + 8
 most knarly contest ever. props to all riders especially the "claw"
  • + 8
 that was such a huge 360 omg
  • + 3
 Best trick won this contest. Not sure it should work that way. Berrecloth 1st for insane line, skills, a big 3 and just holding on. Gee's line was the cleanest and he nailed the quarter drop for style. And maybe Lacondeguy shouldn't run his gob off about hits being too small.
  • + 6
 No Sunday will ever top this one. Zink and Claw both had sick 3's. But Claw managing to stay on his bike was incredible!!!
  • + 7
 The whole stuff was insane! Congrats to Zink and all the riders!
  • + 9
 amazing! a part of gee line was soooo steep and for a long time! perfect top 3 i guess
  • + 3
 yeh gee went mental, bearclaw went tech & sketch and zinc went big & ballsy on an otherwise so-so run, but made history!... the got the results they deserved!
  • + 8
 epic!
  • + 2
 All it takes is one weekend in october to push freeride to another huge level!
  • + 3
 zinc was good but i think claw deserved the win... his run was smooth and unbelieveable to watch... although props to zinc on the 360... i think the backflip attempts on the double after the oakley sender were awesome... slow so close... better luck next time... Sunday well spent...
  • + 4
 The Claaawww is back and Zink is the new King! Once Brendan comes back it will be awesome to see McCaul, Zink and Semenuk battle for wins. Very happy to see Zink get his few days in the sun.
  • + 5
 What's the deal with the announcer ... Brad Ewen ... couldn't they find anyone less annoying? Nevertheless, good job boys!!!!
  • + 3
 without the 3 drop, Zinc's run was no big whoop... Rampage is not a big trick contest its much more than that. Barrecloth's run was waaaaaay sicker. Don't get me wrong, the 3.6 was awesome but in my opinion, Zinc needed to back flip the jump after to get such a high score. Gee was tight, no doubt, but missing the big hits the top guns were doing.

 Gee did a line that no one else did successfully. While Barrecloth had no originality as he has been trying that line for the last 3 Rampages. And Zink summed it up with a bang'r drop and trick as per the usually rules of Rampage go big and win.
  • + 4
 Zink one-uped Berrecloth. They can both spin big drops, but only one of them did.
  • + 2
 andreu L. first run should have been around an 84 I think. Second place. It was smooth, fast, stylish, he hit the sender drop, backflipped the step up and the step down... was a sick run, but came too early, judges left scores in there back pocket waiting for more. Gee's run was sick too actually, not sure anyone else hit the line successfully, especially the hip at the end... very tech, plus he was fast as fuck down there and stylish. Cam - 1st, Andreu - 2md. Gee - 3rd, Claw - 4th in my books !
  • + 1
 gully done almost the same run as lacondeguy and hit it far smoother, both his flips after the sender were sketch and he didn't clear the little double right after it which gully did

 Looking forward to seeing the footage again, because just as #buhgina stated, the streaming was horrible! I got so fed up refreshing my screen (I also have a high end computer and high speed), I went for a ride. Great work to all the riders! Can't believe Zink pulled it out Smile

 Oh well, pictures of the failed 360 will do. They look the same until he reaches the landing anyway.Wink

 I think everyones giving the judging way too hard of a time. Rampage is based on so many different factors that it is without a doubt the most difficult competition to judge
  • + 2
 WOW! This was so awesome. I had a great time watching. Props to Zink for pulling the insane 360 drop and winning Rampage & KWW! Atherton was the only one to pull the large transition so he deserved 2nd even though I thougt Andreu was shorted a few points at first. Great time!
  • + 2
 I just witnessed history!! all you guys that threw down out here are amazing, Zink....i still cant believe you 3'd that sender...and i saw it with my own eyes... thanks Redbull... and thanks athletes, that was the best rampage to date!!!
  • + 2
 I love how there are only a few companoes represented twice. There are so many bike companies represented here its crazy. I also love how many riders were ripping it on 888's. So what if one broke - it was a massive huck that went wrong, any fork would have - shows that Marz have the big mountain backing.
  • + 1
 I noticed that, too - and two that did represent twice didn't rank well (K & SC)
  • + 2
 I think the other Cam did great job calling the action all day. It was great to hear it from his rider perspective. Props to him. Thank you riders! That was hands down the most impressive thing I've ever seen on two wheels. Unbelievable what all those guys threw down.

 Awesome 360! Awesome feed as well just wish crankworx was as good a feed as the Rampage Well done all the rider's you guys got big balls! and maybe a few of you have some sore one's as well, Who's forks snapped in half ? halfway through the event? and what forks where they? good job Gee

 James Doerfling also snapped his forks.

 It was Doerfling who broke his 888's first on the gap to wall-ride/QP transfer, then Hopkins broke his 888's second off the 60ft gap.

 It was a dark day for Marzocchi...

 Yeah, I thought this feed came through and looked much better than crankworx. I had to drop to low quality on crankworx and it still chopped. I got a few chops on this one but nothing bad.

  • + 1
 Here's a few things people are forgetting:
Gee stomped the Q/P gap that NO one else landed and it looked soooooooo sick!
Zink made History- That's why he's the MAN- and the winner.
This is a true Big Mountain Event- Can you say - No 360 tail whips!!!!
Any fork can break if you crash hard enough.

I'm still amazed at the level of compition and crazy s##t I saw on Sunday. I kept saying OMG! he stuck it! Claw's holding on at the top was so dramatic and to see him pull the reins and stomp the run was awesome. I think Gee's place was justified after 2 other riders attemted the hip gap, both crashed and one broke his fork.
  • + 1
 Great comp. Loved it. Thanks PB for streaming. I am with the crowd that cannot see how G got 2nd. The Claw was way better despite the raggedness. Thought this was a balls out freeride comp not a regular downhill race. IMO they should remove the timing altogether so riders have more time to nail more stuff clean and downhillers are encouraged to try some style. Anyway, congrats to Zink and Berrecloth. Lacondeguy was good for 3rd IMO. Maybe they gave Gee extra hoping it would push everyone to try harder. Dunno. Also do not understand why he didn't take his 2nd run. Other guys took a 2nd run after snapping forks!

 Congrats to Gee, he should have won!!!!
  • + 1
 No matter how it looked on live feed you can not tell the level of how tech everyones lines where at Rampage! I was lucky enough to be down there digging lines with the boys for the past few days before the comp started and everyone had things that where flat out gnarly. Super stoked to see big bikes back in action and everyone killed it.
  • + 2
 well done gee you did amazing for a dh racer from england everyone bitching about him, just shut up and except the fact a british racer beat some american freeriders in a freeride comp. GEE RULES!!!!!
  • + 1
 i was very disappointed about the results of the first attempt they gave too many points for Gee , yes his way of rocking here was incredibly wild but not as wild as other slopestyle guys did. all in all it was superb show with big gaps and tricks all props to RED BULL.
  • - 1
 Point is he is a racer, and not a slopestyle guy, meaning he has less training doing areal stuff than the slopestyle guys who focus primarily on that year round. Gee man'd up and rocked it. That says quite a bit for a racer. You didn't see sam hill up there, or steve peat, or gwin. No, you saw gee up there rockin it. He deserved every bit he got! Especially since he's also a young buck like the rest.
  • + 1
 Yeah, and also rampage is not a slopestyle competition. He will have scored low on trick points obviously but killed it on the other criteria.
  • + 1
 You don't see Sam Hill up there because it's in his Specialized contract to only do DH races, in an intervoew he said he'd love to but he's not alowed. And Steve Peat did compete in 2 of the earlier Rampages as well, but again it's in his contract to only do races. And if anybody remembers Gee podiumed at Rampage before and almost won it, in my mind racers have better and smoother style than slopestyle riders ever will.
  • + 1
 Sorry the level of riding is hard to describe there it looks like you on mars from the soil to the crazy weather everything is alien about southern Utah. If you headed down there you would see why everyone is using the word "gnarly"

and with zink on the top step everything is fine for meSmile claw also really deserved it!he had an Gnarly run!

 Sick event, and the fact that we pinkbikers could watch it live is even sicker! Thanks for the happiness you've been giving me pinkbike!
  • + 1
 So I read that the total prize money was only $25 000. Does anyone know if that figure is correct? If so, doesn't that seem ridiculously low considering how much talent and risk was involved? The prize money for third place alone should have been at least $25 000.
  • + 1
 Do you really think this event pulls in that much money? WC dh races pull more money and look at their cash purses. Heck, look at crankworx with their crap 3k prizes. Rampage is probably the smallest of the bunch and has the biggest purse. I think crankworx should be seeing the 25,000 purses... especially since all the hotels and town it's self profits fierce off of it. (think attendance). Imagine if redbull and not kokanee sponsored crankworx. Probably would be a similar purse.
  • + 1
 Robbie Big Air probably wishes he was 24, but I'm pretty sure he's a few years older since I saw him compete in the Aussie Red Bull Ride in 2002 and he was 19 then! Back then only two guys (one being Wade) cleared the 6 meter final drop...just goes to show how far freeriding has come!!!
  • + 1
 it is called "the evolution" so I'm sure it will. the riders, the riding, the lines. It's a judged event so it'll always be subjective. these guys seem like big wave surfers to me. They're there for the ride and challenge first and the comp second.
  • + 1
 It wasn't a slope-style contest, and tricks were not a judged category. Sure Zink showed a maniacal desire to win, but it was still just one big trick. Claw rode an incredibly technical line, but was sloppy and slow. If the judges applied their own criteria objectively, Gee's fast, flowing, technical, ballsy run would have won. Awesome entertainment, but the commentators sucked - I'd like some technical background and analysis mixed in with my hype.

 Awesome way to spend my entire sunday... I wish this sunday could repeat forever. One question... Did I miss something or did the Gee man only do one run? My computer died on me and I hope I didnt miss a second run.

- Cameron Zink 360 the icon sender
- Aggy huge tabletop on the hip
- Vanderham line...
- Berrecloth line makes me dream !!!
- Gulevich who deserved the third place with his perfect backflip and run !!!

And the podium should have be:

- Cameron Zink: first place
- Darren Berrecloth: second place
- Geoff Gulevich: third place

 The flow and speed of gee's run earned him exactly the spot he got. Zink broke the boundaries of the sport. Berrecloth did well but had a lot of dabbing and broke his flow. Judging was pretty fair.

 i 100% agree with suraj. i think they got the podium positions right for the same reasons. im dissappointed that so many people are taking credit away from gee because he had an amazing run. his run was super fast and steep. a very solid run from top to bottom
  • + 9
 Hey T-u-R-b-O - You dont know what your talking about!!!! Firstly- Ride more OK. I'll tell you why. The sheer speed of his run was amazing ( Thats one criteria of a MOUNTAIN biker) The way he floated those air on that ridge line into a high-speed steep section, then he punctuated his run with one of the best moves of the comp, the transfer to wall!! He finished his stacked run before claw had even got to his first feature.

 Look at the type of riding it is. My god do people have no common sense these days? Also did you see the types of crashes involved in those breakages. Sure, huck anything off 50 feet cliffs, smash down sideways... shit gonna break regardless of brand. Stop fussing about stupid shit.

 i do think its just a coincidence that some 888s got broken in this event, of course it's the RAMPAGE. do you guys even remember the first batch of 2010 boxxers that got broken at the arch? they were just being used by normal people riding normally not unlike the insane big burly riding that these forks and bikes get abused at the Red Bull Rampage. there are alot of riders using the new 888 but not all got broken aint it. don't even neg prop me coz i only have a cheap bike but i say this because its just common sense don' you think?
  • - 1
 wtf is negative prop?...never used boxxers so i dont remember..sounds like rockshox has some issues too if "normal ppl" are just riding on them "normally"?...i saw 2 forks snap of the same model and brand..just sayin its weird and a first ( for me to witness at one event)...i think its common sense to be aware of these mishaps as a consumer..if im spending money in the future im going to want to be aware of these " coincidences"!..i think you'd be a f*cking moron if you didnt..?
  • + 2
 Because your POV is absolutely retarded boulder. Stop being a know-it-all and just take into note the riding they are doing is bigger than anything else going on in today's world. No shit they broke. If the forks didn't break on those impact's I'd be a tad worried.

It's nothing about a consumer mishap, stop slandering marzocchi for something you have 0 idea about. THAT IS WHY YOUR NEG PROPPED!


Haha and nice calling me "nor cal". Seems your creative in your posting. It's plain and common sense. If this is the only sport you follow, you aren't following it very well at all... because dozens of other forks have broken under NORMAL riding conditions from all brands. If you think it's my "norcal" ness making me harp at you it's not. You just sound like a typical slanderous democrat having a pissy fest about something he won't ever be a part of. Nuf said. Go ride.

 Wow, i cant believe Zink won with a run that was generic except for the 360. The Rampage just turned into a big trick competition.

 a big trick competition huh? then how did gee get second without throwing any tricks (unless a whip is a trick for you)? its a big mountain event where tricks are only a part of the scoring. the line choice and style and linking it all together all play a HUGE role in the scoring. your comment is just trying to discredit cam, which is dick move because he deserved it (read: he has bigger balls than you can even fathom). everyone out there put on a hell of a show.

 A whip? Haven't you seen his transfer to the wallride section at the end? That was some awesome sauce.

 i guess i didn't make myself clear (i forgot sarcasm doesn't show well on the web lol). gees run was amazing - meaning he didn't need to throw tricks to place well because the rest of his run was perfect (fast, smooth, lots of air, with super steep chutes thrown in). i thought the judges did a great job of scoring. it makes me angry when people try to discredit certain riders because they aren't their favorite. a few of my favorite riders finished near the end, but i am not bitching about it because those who did place higher had amazing runs.
