This was Vincent Tupin's first appearance at Red Bull Rampage, but as a Fest Series regular there was no doubt that he had the skills to mix it up with the event's seasoned veterans. Vinny T is his own mechanic, and at the end of each day in the desert it was up to him to ensure that his Scott Gambler was ready for another round of charging. When the dust had settled he ended up in 14th place, a very respectable finish for a newcomer.
Rider: Vincent Tupin
• Scott Gambler - large

• 210mm travel
• Handlebar width: 780mm
• Tire pressure: 36 psi with tubes (approximately)

The BOS Idylle fork and Stoy shock were both custom tuned, but the only real change from his typical settings was to stiffen up both the fork and shock to handle the bigger drops that are standard fare at Rampage.
