 Does anyone know if its an open venue? Or do they sell tickets in advance?

 You need a ticket to get on the hill. I've heard its all sold out already. Check anyway though.

 Someone on Salt Lake City classifieds sites has 4 tickets for sale. He is listing them for $130 each. That's reasonable, right?

 Apparently they're clamping down on spectators so it's strictly ticket-only this year. First wave sold out, but potentially more to go on sale.

 It has always been ticket only admission... since they brought it back in 08 anyways. The first wave was for "insiders" and the second wave of tickets will go on sale soon with more publicity... the first wave was only by ear but still sold out insanely quick. I have no idea what their plan is with these wave of tickets but regardless, I've never missed one and will not start now. It was like fate they brought it back the year I moved out here Wink haha

 I had no idea Kyle Strait was 14 when he first rode in Rampage. That is insane. 14!!!

 Yeah amazing they've been doing this event minus the 3 years off since 01! Sad thing is most of the kids riding weren't out of diapers or old enough to remember that era and the heros from then!

 Does Strait do a lot if riding outside of Rampage? It seems like he doesn't get a lot if coverage for such a good rider. Most of these other guys either ride the slopestyle contests or race or make a shit ton if videos etc. Just seems like Strait is somewhat out if the spotlight.

 Dude, Sir Lyle is the man. Throws down at Sea Otter, races a bit.. super well rounded rider. And an all around awesome guy too.

 I know he is an awesome rider, which is why it seems odd that he doesn't get the exposure that a lot of other guys do.

 From what I have read, it seems that Strait kind of burned out for a while a few years back. After a bit of soul searching and support from positive people, he got back into it. It has been great to see him back charging and being competitive. He is a solid all around rider

 The new place looks awesome.. I agree with strait they should get rid of some wood features, R.I.P canyon gap and Oakley drop you will be missed..
  • 12 0
 I read some where they will have much longer to build this time so should be no need for wooden stuff if they crews team up they could do a dirt feature drop/gap of the same scale.

 Did Andreu just quote Ricky Bobby??

 Andreu's attitude toward the sport and competing is pretty awesome.

 Andreu looking lean and mean. Not as pudgy looking as years past. Thats the sign of an athlete who has been doing some training. Hasn't been riding in the slopestyle comps this year but has moved to the mountains and been at all the events on the Fest series. Looks like he has been prepping for Rampage for a while. My money is on him.

 When you want cattle, you take the cattle. When you want food, you take food. If Lyle says "leave the wood out", you leave out the wood.

 Everyone in the top 4 had better runs than Strait last year, dunno why he won...
  • 3 2
 Bc it's a big mountain contest not slopestyle. His line up top was by far the most challenging and he rode it smoother top to bottom than anyone. He also hit all the biggest features that he possibly could work into his line. I'm not even a kyle straight fan and I knew his run was the best as soon as I saw it.

 I hope they give Andreu 1st place this year, because I'm still pissed off from last years results Frown
