Results - Red Bull Rampage 2015
I agree water is the best, but we need the evil that is Red Bull for more of these events and their absolute backing of sports that deserve to have more limelight.

Results - Red Bull Rampage 2015
Re-watching Zink and Semenuk and Sorge's runs, I believe now that Sorge's run was better than I originally thought. Maybe not as good as Semenuk's tricks, but he took some of those steep sections with full speed and his whole line was smooth and he tricked nearly everything. Now I am seeing why Zink did not score as high: he had to go slow through the chute and he did not trick the last section. Still, Zink had some powerful big moments: perhaps the biggest moments of a run that finished, but I think Sorge's all-around was impressive. I have a little more respect for the judging now. I'm sure a lot has to do with how exposed a section is past a landing, etc., as those big tricks are impressive but probably have safer landing regions. Rampage judging seems to change every year, but it seems this year the tricks were rewarded less than in other years, where then they were being complained about and not being "true" rampage. It seems the judging was trying to go more back to the roots this year.

Pinkbike Interview: Jordie Lunn
Just saw the movie ROAM where they shot a sequence in his backyard, Man, Jordie's dad is loaded...did you see how nice that house was and the big back yard? Definitely a fortunate upbringing, although I've quickly come to realize that most action sports athletes that rely on expensive gear like bikes or snowboards and parkas usually come from affluent families. It seems the only down to earth people anymore are skateboarders, and even then many are spoiled brats. Sigh, I love mountain biking just wish I would have grown up in a better situation and I'd be a much better rider than I am since I'm starting late.
