With Nick's second Rampage appearance around the corner, the crew headed out to southern France to adventure into the legendary Black Hills. This spot is as close as it gets to the feeling of Rampage runs without having to fly overseas. We camped out there in the middle of nowhere for 4 days, avoiding storms and hiking lines all day long. Local rider Antoni Villoni was our guide, showing us the darkest sides of these hills and we can't thank him enough!

 Pretty tame compared to what's at rampage but I loved watching that! those lines look so much fun, (in comparison to rampage where lines look like death sentences)
  • 60 3
 "Lines" in Rampage nowadays are big, groomed hits. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't even dream of riding any of it but this vid here shows the real spirit of Ramapge- off camber, narrow exposed ridges and nasty run outs from big natural drops. Wouldn't appeal so much to the casual observer but flippin' cool riding!

 I dunno, that last line looked pretty nuts. Some crazy exposure on the left side. Would hate to fall there.
  • 12 3
 That last line was the only crazy line though... The rest looked relatively achievable by a lot of riders
  • 14 2
 achievable doesn't mean its not crazy or not dangerous. rampage is also achievable by many, but one mistake can make achievable turn into a possible fatality :\

 When were there completely natural drops in Rampage? Since the earliest years, every drop was groomed in one way or another. As for just being groomed, please try riding from the start gate or hitting some of the runs that aren't based on slopestyle setups and let us know how groomed or non sketchy that is for ya Smile

Its impossible to compare the two but damn, this looks very close depending on how the dirt acts. That last line kinda looks like part of the one Jaws ripped up. Awesome.

 Was hoping to see some Bizet flips...still, I’ve always wanted to go to the Black Hills and that drone shot at the end is doing nothing to help.

Roll on Rampage.

 That place looks like a giant version of the local quarry we used to ride as kids. And I mean GIANT VERSION!

How awesome was that last line?
  • 4 1
 our shale quarry's elevation drop was only 300 feet...think deep holes. Similar lines though, especially in the large overburden piles of clay nearby. Water would erode deep gullies with rocks poppin out everywhere. But mountain bikes sucked in the 1990's, so the fear factor was probably similar.

 quarries are really nice place to ride, i wished i had one close to my home; possible road gaps
step ups etc; wished there was a guide for finding them, cause looking over the net can b e quite difficult, the dutch name for them is not
so for it self speaking to be finding it on the net

 I'm wearing my ignorance openly here but, isn't rasta a type of christianity? The lord Bob Marley spoke of wasn't pagan as far as I could tell.
  • 1 1
 Well yeah my problem is not with the religious message per se my problem is when they think just because your song has a religious message you can forget about evrything else. You still need good lyrics and good music go listen to bob marley rastaman chant and youll get it. Is an openly religious song but the song is still pretty damn good.

 Hello Nic (Nick?)!
My Answer is:
With no words (such a marketing and selfmading story telling shit) and better style (because it's Polish Style of course Wink )
I'll never stop looking for Jaws in RBR - he deserve for it!
But it's not the straight hate just my point of view (neva' been The Real Hater - too old for this shit Wink ) - my cohones are smaller than Yours and my bike is smaller, too Smile
Cheers and good luck in competition!
