We have confirmation that Utah-based Reed Boggs will compete at Red Bull Rampage on October 15th.
Moments after teeing up his biggest flip yet, Reed Boggs got a call from Red Bull Rampage's Todd Barber letting him know that there was a position available for him to compete. Finals are taking place in just over two weeks, with building starting well before then. Reed Boggs was a rookie at Red Bull Rampage in 2019 and finished in 11th spot
, just missing the pre-qualification.
It looks like Boggs is up to speed already as he stomped this 51 foot step down backflip this morning filming for a film project by Craig Grant called ‘Riding off Cliffs’. Sterling Lorence captured this beauty shot on site and Boggs shared a POV clip on Instagram

But Jaxson’s was 50ft from take-off to flat where he landed. If he’d landed where he was supposed to the drop would’ve been ~25ft vertically. Reed’s is 50ft (assuming tip to tip) so his drop is probably ~35-40ft vertically depending on geometry. That’s why they look different.
And it's not even just about how to handle yourself on a big bike. Lot of it is like.. determining/digging what's going to feel big/cool/insane on a mountain bike. Brandon's had quite a bit of time spent building jumping and just doing ridiculous shit growing up and I think he has a lot to bring to the table when it comes to showcasing interesting/creative/batshit insane ways to get down a mountain.
