Red Bull Rampage - Day 3 - The Apocalypse

Oct 3, 2010
by Margus Riga  
Day three at the Red Bull Rampage is a training day for all riders in the finals to dial their lines. They got in a few hours until the wind picked up and sand storms blinded the venue.

Sorry Bourdo, had to grab one for the hair of the dog. I promise to help clear your psychotic finals line.

Only at the Red Bull Rampage will you see four dudes successfully send it across a sixty foot gap in a matter of ten minutes.

Bourdo, preparing his super gnarl line. Somehow I don't think he was worried about someone else poaching it.

Alex Pro, opting for the super sender off the first starting gate drop. Keep in mind almost all the other dudes were either rolling off this, or pussy dropping it.

Darren Berrecloth's finals line is a true work of art. Opting to build all his stunts, rather than hitting the pre-built senders. It starts with a fifteen footer, to steep as shit chute, then snaking down the canyon through a thirty footer, to step-down, to wallride, to hopefully first place.

 Ha yeah i know but to see 3d you need a monitor and a graphic card that can play 3d. My laptop can't :/

Sometimes i wish, the Pro's would publish even more in the community like Gee (Atherton project) does.

 I have read lots of bad comments about andreu lacondeguy in last few days, including his crankworx "jumps are to little" attitude. I have no comments about that, but, he's been saying that jumps have to be bigger, mtb isn't bmx, ect. all season.

So, did he hit the canyon gap and the oakley sender? What do you think about that?
  • 1 0
 Well, I don't know if he did. Do you?
  • 1 0
 He was at the sender when the storm started, so he didn't, @redbullusa/rampage

Hope to see him trick that canyon gap at the finals. If he doesn't than he's been talking 5h1t all year about going huge and stuff and backing off comps for no reason.
