 Rampage needs to take some cues from this rider list
  • 1 0
 Rampage needs to take cues from fest type scheduling. But that's not what Red Bull is about. They want their live show with Selema to feel like the X Games. Even though they are already starting to acknowledge they can get more views spread out over more time by doing more or less Fest style marketing. But they still want their live show on a time table that will always screw over the last riders second runs.

 Considering he seems to be heli biking with Brett Rheeder at the moment he’s probably not crying to the police…
  • 7 0
 I wouldn't be surprised if he gets called for most/all these events and turns them down since he is off doing his own thing at the time. He doesn't center his riding around these events and seems to show up if they are interesting or if they fit with what he is doing.
