With unfinished lines on everyones mind this year, it's time to see who can shape, polish and secure the win for the 14th edition of the world's wildest freeride MTB event. Red Bull

 It's about progression. Rampage started off riding natural features. Now it's all massive built up features with carved in lines. More like what you see in a Bike Park.
I like progression , change can be good. Gaps and drops are getting bigger and the sculpted lips and landings make the moves as " safe" as possible.
Rampage is still the ultimate beast of a Free Ride completion .
I still get super hyped .
Bring it on!

 @Sshredder:

I'd be more concerned with your election today. You have a vote in that.

PB dudes don't have a vote in Rampage course feature style.

 Carson is a walking doppelgänger for my best buddy growing up. We used to paintball, skateboard, then got into riding together. In 2013 he developed schizophrenia and gradually pulled away until finally going missing in 2014. Awkward story to share but I get the sense Carson is a heck of a great dude. Good luck this year brother, crush it!

 Is Carson Storch related to Larry Storch from the TV show F-Troop? Its a very rare name...

 He's part Hakawi, I believe.

Little-known F-Troop fact:


7. The Hakawi tribe was originally called the Fugawi.

The name of the local tribe is a silly pun, The Hakawi, based on the punchline to a joke, "Where the heck are we?" Originally, the writers used a moniker a little more blue, and tried to push "Fugawi" past the censors. The censors got the joke. Today, the History Channel runs a series entitled "We're the Fugawis." How the times change.

Insatiable thirst for more little-know F-Troop tidbitz:

 None of these guys need to risk life and limb for me (the viewer). And when tragedy happens, so unbelievably sad.
