Andreu Lacondeguy Out of Red Bull Rampage 2021 After Practice Crash
@sino428: Yeah that’s fair. I think what I’m getting at is more comments like “someone’s gonna die” doesn’t just apply to this event. MTB athletes are pushing the limits and those consequences at more than just Rampage, and is events which are perceived as safer, or with less risk involved. The risks are what intrigues us, it’s the underlying appeal of these sports.

Andreu Lacondeguy Out of Red Bull Rampage 2021 After Practice Crash
I haven’t been keeping statistics, only my perception, but the injury rate and nature of the injuries on the Downhill World Cup circuit feels like it’s equally or even more dangerous than Rampage. Obviously for Rampage the sample size is smaller and the exposure time is quite short, but look at the injury list for DH this last year and some of the injuries (Thibault!) - and it’s a UCI sport, with a stack of events - the exposure time is huge! Seems like you could apply the “but someone’s gonna die” to DH too. Those legends that are pushing the limits eventually find them. Heal up Andreu! I hope someone else can deliver on the looseness you bring.
