Video: Sundown Sessions - Rampage 2019

Oct 23, 2019
by Sarah Moore  


Sundown during Red Bull Rampage is a special time of day. The wind calms, the shovels are set aside, and one by one riders begin to test their features. It's serene, tense, and f***ing awesome when all the hard work comes together and the riders bring their lines to life.

Watch Red Bull Rampage 2019 LIVE on October 25th from 6pm CEST / 9am PST here.

 Same here. This is f*cking insane! But these pictures are NOTHING compared to standing at the lip of the drop! (I've been there in 2015)

 Stoked as well. Just hoping Redbull has all the good camera angles and zoom dialed in for all the runs. My productivity for Friday after 9am is going to be zero for a few hrs

 I hope they will show more footage like this on the actual contest day, as it looks much better than the whole gopro POV thing...

 praying for no POV on Friday. it's always fun to get that perspective after the contest, but I prefer seeing the terrain from a 3rd person pov like every other sporting event.

 @gemma8788: I like both. The gopro views give the best feel for how gnarly a run is. But yeah you need both for perspective. The weakest view is from the bottom. It compresses the scenery and you can't tell how big some stuff is. I know they run a helicopter, which is great for side shots. A couple drones, closer in (but not too close) would be pretty cool. Riders would probably hate that though.

The worst though is when they cut away for whatever reason and you miss parts of the run. Come on!

 @blastido: there have been some tragic cuts for sure, rider'll get the front tire off the lip and we cut away.

 The front flip is definitely the sketchiest trick. Such an un-natural rotation going against all the natural momentum of the rider and jump.

 So is the TLD D4 already here? Or what is Semenuk wearing?

 Thought the same!

 Yeah that’s definitely the D4, and T-Mac’s Bell looks different as well, maybe more ventilation and better impact absorption (those orange bits?)

 There should be a Rampage alumni ride before the comp, with current riders judging.

 How about a judges competition? A competition to become a Rampage judge with the riders judging the judges!
