Interview: Claudio Caluori on Concussions, Closing His Race Team, & the Josh Bryceland Controversy
@watchmen: Agreed. Healthcare in America is expensive. As a typical US citizen, I don't have an option or alternative to that fact. My point was and still is that debating the privatization of health insurance and healthcare and their impact on the cost of getting hurt or sick is completely different than if Red Bull should be obligated to pay those costs.

Interview: Claudio Caluori on Concussions, Closing His Race Team, & the Josh Bryceland Controversy
@The-Taurean: We don't do it by choice. It's the world we (Americans) live in. Insurance is expensive because healthcare is expensive. The money to cover surgery, prescriptions, hospital stays, rehab, short term or permanent disability losses it all has to come from somewhere. Whether or not, or to what extent the government should be involved in healthcare is a completely separate debate from whether or not a private company needs to be responsible for any expenses willing participants incur in a country that does not have universal healthcare.

@bizutch: Agreed. As someone who also works in Insurance, there is no underwriting or actuarial formula that could write a policy for Rampage participants as special even coverage. It just doesn't work. Would would work is if each rider was considered an employee of at least one of their sponsors, rather than an independent contractor. A large brand like Specialized or Red Bull or Fox, etc. could absorb the risk cost into their entire employment pool that is filled with 9-5ers doing primarily office jobs. You could laser specific individuals at higher deductibles to avoid huge premium hikes for the rest of the company, and include the deductible coverage as a part of their compensation. Who knows, maybe some sponsors do. I hate the thought process that it is Red Bull's sole responsibility as the event promoter to cover participants, when these guys are pushing themselves all the time (not just at Rampage) and their is no push-back on the companies they ride FOR to cover any injury liability. What Claudio is discussing here is not necessarily injury liability from a insurance perspective, but more or less from a public perspective where they allowed/encouraged/asked someone with a known brain injury to keep performing the task that caused said brain injury for their benefit. Could Red Bull be doing more to support riders in their time of need? Yes. Does Red Bull benefit from riders willing to what these riders are willing to subject themselves to for the pleasure of a viewing audience? Yes. Is Red Bull one of the largest supporters of these riders and promoters of the sport in which they choose to participate? Yes.

https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/16982051/ The pic of Bas from dual slalom appears to say "RPC" on the chinbar, like a lot of their current Rampage Pro Carbon helmets do.

Video: Friday Fails #52
No brakes on the face of the jump. Using brakes will pitch your weight forward, unweighting the rear wheel and springing the rear up as it leaves the ground.
