 What's Aggy doing? He's not getting any coverage.
  • 1 0
 I thought to myself "doesnt this guy know he's not in this year". what the hell happened, how is Aggy so under the radar these days

 EVIL getting no love?!?

 I feel like he’s really gotten low key since his hip injury a couple years back. Love the guy but expecting him to put down a relatively low-risk run

 It's not like PB HQ and Evil bikes are within minutes of one another in Bellinghemp.

 @lbsteinm: Pretty sure the Pinkbike HQ is in Squamish. Close, but definitely not within minutes of each other.

 Aggy has been sick. Hopefully we'll be able to catch up with him asap. It's INSANE that he's riding Rampage on an enduro bike.

 I think aggy line is the least crazy if it’s the same as last year

 My question is where can I get a Tippee Maxxis Sun hat?
  • 22 1
 looks like it has paper sidewalls, would prefer better casing
  • 7 0
 @kyytaM: waiting for exo+++ sunhat

 @dglass: is there an ebike appropriate lining or retention system. Worried a brisk walk will destabilize and deform the thing. Asking for a friend.

 From what i saw Brendog gap it's the scariest jump, i know there are bigger drops and stuff but not tricky has that gap..
  • 3 0
 I think the same, the lip and the landing are not that forgiving. since they are super steep both.

 And I think he will 360 it
  • 6 0
 @torbenrider: they built up the lip this year, so guessing he's flipping the canyon.
  • 3 0
 @xy9ine: Yeah, probably that is the idea, mostly because flipping is the trick that Brendog looks more comfortable with.. But man, even just landing that is impressive.
  • 1 0
 @HopeFbn: brendog went to matt jones’s to practice a trick they said.. so maybe it will be a backflip variation or yeah a 360, but to me the flip is most likely here
  • 2 0
 @Jeroc454: he was learning flat spins

 Funniest line from one of the builders "Tmax....it's just not safe." I think none of it is safe!

I can't even begin to judge a line - there skill is just so beyond my comprehension.

Exciting to watch - but even standing on those cliffs building a line is rowdy enough for me! crazy

 I hope Brendog gets up the pointy end this year

 The problem is that all the lines are gnarly, but in different ways. It makes it difficult to judge one "winner". I think they should judge riders to win categories like "best trick", "rawest line", "style king" instead of ranking all the runs on the same criteria.

 compared to 99% of what people who endlessly comment about it being too smooth, too slope etc, ride, all of it is rowdy as f*ck.

 Man this is going to be a great year for Rampage! So many different picks from everyone.
  • 8 0
 So pretty much everyone...

 Brandon Bearclaw.

 Honestly, none of this stuff even comes close to the below for me. The accuracy required and possibility to totally f*ck yourself is unmatched IMO. I still can’t watch it without cringing.

 Kinda interesting Fabio is not in it honestly. Doesnt seem like hes ever tried

 Ya Fabio should totally do rampage next year

 i remember walking up those stairs in paris - steep, tight and the spiked fence - absolutely mental street line to ride.. completely different playgrounds but if you highlight required accuracy and possibility to f*uck yourself up i'd say they're pretty much on par. would love to see fabio ride at rampage sometime!

 @paulpimml: You come off your bike on that and you’re hitting concrete or iron.

A massive brain or spinal injury would be highly likely. Look at the crashes people walk away from at Rampage.

 Not a single mention of Johny´s line...

 The first year dudes at a real disadvantage sadly.

 They haven't seen that in action, everyone is basically talking about lines that last year were ridden, but I do agree, his line is crazy.

 So the Storch/Strait Price is Right launch...it's gonna get a divet/hole in the lander after the 1st one goes off it. Are they allowed to pack the landers between each other's runs?
  • 1 0
 Storch hitting it as well...I think Szymon is the one who guinea pigged it...Carson is right next to it I thought?
  • 1 1
 @MikeyMT: Also I think reed boggs is hitting it, just lower.
  • 1 0
 @HopeFbn: I think you're right...same landing different lips.

Kyle/Szymon only guys sending the super big boy I think
  • 1 0
 @MikeyMT: different take off i think. carson is coming in below and right (looking down)
  • 1 0
 @MikeyMT: Isn't Zink also sending the big one?, or that is other drop shared with Kyle?.
  • 2 2
 So...does anyone know the answer to the divet/hole question?

 @bizutch: We don't do that here

 Much love for the builders! All seem like great guys from the UK lads to the Mexican crew - nice to have some spotlight on them in the coverage!

 Rampage is a slopestyle contest now, they need to start judging more on rawness and less big hits.
  • 3 3
 Some rowdy lines and some slopestyle courses as usual. Will be interesting to see how they judge it.
