9:46 am PDT Rampage rookie William Robert was one of the first riders along with Szymon Godziek to put a full run together after deciding to build his line from top to bottom. William is sitting at the top of the course and is just waiting to kick things off today.

9:48 am PDT William Robert is dropping in on the riders right from the start gate with some fresh features in his run.

9:49 am PDT William Robert manages to get a full run down despite a heavy landing almost throwing him off.

9:51 am PDT Carson Storch is next up and will be looking for redemption after his crash last year.

9:55 am PDT Carson Storch has a great start to the day with some big tricks and a clean run. What will the judges think?

10:04 am PDT Andreu Lacondeguy's score comes in just behind Carson Storch with a 73.

10:06 am PDT Dylan Stark is next and has had a tough week with a big case earlier in the week injuring his ankle. Dylan was back sending his line in the final practice sessions including hitting the canyon gap for the first time.

10:09 am PDT Dylan Stark is off and this run will hopefully be the first time we see the huge canyon gap today.

10:12 am PDT A loose run for Dylan Stark coming up short on the massive 75ft canyon gap but he manages to hold on to the bottom.

10:14 am PDT Dylan Stark sits in fourth so far with a 53.

10:15 am PDT The fifth rider to drop in is Tom Van Steenbergen who initially wasn't sure about returning to Rampage after his horrific crash last year.

10:27 am PDT Tom Van Steenbergen gets a 63.66 for his first run.

10:28 am PDT DJ Brandt has built his run around some classic features from past Rampages so we could be in for something great.

10:34 am PDT A 62.33 for DJ Brandt puts him in fourth behind Tom Van Steenbergen.

10:39 am PDT The time away from Rampage hasn't affected Brett Rheeder as he stomps a massive run.

10:44 am PDT It's a huge score as the judges give Brett Rheeder a 90.66.

10:45 am PDT What can Szymon Godziek do to combat that run from Brett Rheeder, will we see him flip the canyon gap?

10:48 am PDT What a run from Szymon! This is surely going to get a big score from the judges.

10:51 am PDT Szymon Godziek takes second place after eight riders with an 86.33.

10:52 am PDT Jaxson Riddle will be dropping in next for a run that he has said will be packed with jumps.

11:26 am PDT The judges score Cam Zink a 66.

11:31 am PDT Reed Boggs puts together some huge hits and tricks including a massive flip off a 64ft drop.

11:37 am PDT Kurt Sorge is next up with just Brandon Semenuk left for the first runs.

11:40 am PDT A solid run from Kurt Sorge with plenty of huge hits and a massive chute right at the start of his run.

11:42 am PDT A 74 from the judges for Kurt Sorge.

11:43 am PDT Last up for the first runs is Brandon Semenuk who will be doing a huge 15ft acid drop off the start gate. Apparently, two other riders were looking at this line before deciding against it.

11:48 am PDT A big run for Brandon Semenuk but will it be enough to beat Brett Rheeder's 90.66.

Second Runs:

12:30 pm PDT We are waiting for riders to drop in for their second runs but the wind has definitely started to pick up.

12:46 pm PDT The start list for the second runs has been updated and only Tyler McCaul, William Robert, DJ Brandt, Tom Van Steenbergen, Jaxson Riddle, Andreu Lacondeguy and Thomas Genon will be looking to drop in.

 I just can’t watch it anymore. Judges need a glass stomach installed so they can see with their heads lodged up their asses. Commentators are terrible too. Seems like a dog and pony show now. Mucho props to the diggers and riders for sure though.

 @JB151: definitely that. and maybe judge and release scores at the end of each session. keep the judges in the dark, or off-site (would be easier to have more of them then), and show them the runs in random order with no commentary.

 I mean the only thing that could explain his low score is if for some stupid reason they docked him 15-20 points for the end of his run. Hopefully he can get some confirmation of whether this was the case from the judging to decide whether he tries a second run.

 This Rampage edition was underwhelming. Runs seemed shorter at this site, too. Maybe it should be a 2 day event with a morning (wind-free) session each day.

 The guy didn't miss any trick and rode seemingly the most difficult freeride line out there. How you can send him home with 73 points? Was it because he ran into the trash left on the course?
  • 4 0
 @V7V: totally agree with that!
  • 17 2
 At least give him the best line award.

He turned 90 degrees intro some loose freeride stuff, half of the others would not even dare to put a wheel on. Transitioned through how many lines to get to his own stuff. Tricks we can debate on, but maybe because he's on the moto-side of things max you can score is sub 75?

Still half pissed about how Andreu and how many others absolutely got scores that were not even worth dropping in for or even building these lines. I'll be quiet about the rest otherwise it turns into Rant Bull Rampage here.

 The judging/scoring system needs to change. I say bring in public voting, or half judges half public
  • 10 1
 @sionr644: How about telling the judges exactly what you're planning in advance and getting a difficulty rating, like in diving. Then you've got time to discuss and compare runs, and the public knows that Lacondeguy is going to smash it if he doesn't bail. The riders and judges can keep the detail secret so the public get the surprises.

After that the judges just have to score how well you rode the line.

Much more robust system and easier to judge too.

 @HankHank: what i was thinking was for the judges to keep judging it as they do now, then at the very end after everyone’s runs have a 30 minute window where the public can vote then add the votes together, kinda like Eurovision

 Agreed. According to Bearclaw's IG account Andreu scored low because he didn't do any drops over 20'. IDK...I'm sure judging is hard but he should have scored higher.

 I don’t know man.. I was kind of underwhelmed by the whole show this year. Not at all because of the riding, tons of respect for the guys. I just think the broadcast does not do it any justice. Plus the judging is so intransparent.. if they have a cam on the judges anyway, why not have the head of judges give a short statement on why they decided the way they did. Just a few sentences on line choice, tricks, etc

 @hypa: rampage takes place in America.

 PB members honoring past Rampage events by giving their uninformed opinion on the judging criteria. If runs were based on a single trick, yeah I agree.
  • 156 5
 Godziek got robbed
  • 31 2
 how did that not get 90+? so smooth
  • 29 12
 Aside from the canyon gap and the run into it, Godziek's line is all ridgeline and basic as far as Rampage goes. Rheeder's line was friggen nuts and he had insane tricks on massive and consequential features. Its almost like people ignore all the other judging criteria. Yeah Godziek's line was absurd and insane but at the end of the day, its a judged event with specific criteria.
  • 8 0
 He got second place, that's pretty good. Yeah I prefer his run over Rheeder's too but I'm no judge. I like wild runs a la Lacondeguy (which seems to be popular over here) yet I like the super precise style of Kurt Sorge too (who surprisingly doesn't get that much love over here). Both scored relatively poorly so I'd say if you get over 70 points you're pretty amazing in my book. And McCaul of course, bummer he didn't get to show what he's got.

But yeah, the varying wind conditions make it hard to compare and especially what gets 90+ points. I've seen no-wind events where lots of them were doing double flips, front flips and all that. This year the conditions were tough which make it harder to look pretty on the telly.
  • 19 2
 I had it: Godziek, Semenuck, Rheeder
Lacondeguy was definitely underscored.
So was Stark. Sure he cased the canyon a bit, but he had a complete run and you give it a 50???
  • 6 3
 @snomaster: I was so amped to see Dylan but his run was pretty crap. It felt like it took him 5 more minutes to get to the bottom than everyone else. Still stoked he made it down and think he’s a welcome change in the world of MTB.
  • 2 0
 @NR8productions: my take away is that experience at these events matters more than advertised.
And we need 2nd runs. The wind was forecasted. There’s way too much hype on the live feed. Save the filler content until there is a reason to use it, like a course hold.

 Storch does 2 360s and gets a 77. Lacondeguy takes an absolutely insane line that’s difficult to get to. Flat spin, flat spin 360, back flips the step down, huge superman and gets a 73. 2 riders in and already we have a broken competition.

  • 6 3
 @madmon: He had the same problem as Kelly though, top half wasn't the best. Not much he could do was a trade off to make it to the canyon gap. Thought this was one of the weaker events of the last 5 rampages line wise.
  • 3 1
 @calebscott: watch it again. Godziek had the MOST aggressive style on the top ridge compared to any other rider, complete with a long manual after sending debris every which way. He had to go out that far to get to the canyon gap zone. The ONLY thing I would say is that he could have had a more unique trick than the backflip suicide on his “trick jump”. His bag is deeper than that!
  • 4 0
 @snomaster: I think he said that he wanted to do something special there but once he went for 360 before canyon gap he opted for a safer trick at the end to avoid potential risk on a "safest" jump

 Judges should hold off on releasing scores until after everyone has done their first run. That way they can kinda adjust them to fit after they see everyone. Then second run can be scored normally. Still wouldn't be perfect but I think it would help a lot to avoid the early riders getting robbed.

 @adrennan: The only thing they know for sure, is they weren't going to find out by asking and then get on people's radar. Years of BMX street riding bound to give you authority/trust issues.

Though it did suck that nobody knew it and apparently people didn't see it very well with Cam calling it a 'trials hop' on the broadcast. Maybe my oversized computer monitor at home is a bit advantageous but it was a clear as day crank slide on a rail to drop. Just bummed he didn't get to flair the quarter at the end.

 Or just leave out (or cut short) the 2 hours of documentaries between each rider. This event could be so much better with better planning. 2 day event could be a solution too and they would even make more from it I spose.

To make this event more enjoyable in the future they‘d need to
- remove/shorten all the blaaa between riders to enable 2nd runs
- know riders‘ lines AND know how to film them (half just disappeared)
- have a mix of judging and viewers rating after all riders went down

 Yeah.... I really felt like they were keeping scores down in anticipation of the guys at the end and then run 2.

I really feel like a couple of those dudes got heavily robbed. When presented with a second run you kind of go... well I don't know how much I can stuff in there... is it gonna get me a 91? If not then why?

I'm gutted for T-Mac and gutted for the fans. I really wanted to see him take a shot at that hip. I kind of hope he goes up there and films it after the event.

Just really bummed for those dudes that got hosed. Bummed that Zink couldn't link the run he wanted but stoked he got down in one piece. Really hoping Kyle is o.k. And stoked for Rheeder. Welcome back.

 Is it just me or was that the most disappointing Rampage for a while?

1. Bad judging. Brandt and especially Lacondeguy deserved much higher scores.
2. Camera work was poor this year, I know it's the first time back to this venue for years but still poor.
3. Obviously nobody's fault but the wind in the 2nd half was a real flat ending.
4. Crowd in the paddock were shite. Just seemed really awkward every time a rider came through apart from Boggs.
List goes on!

 Its funny how all the disappointed viewers focus on everything but the riding. Ya'll are watching for the wrong reasons it seems.
  • 7 0
 @scott-townes: well if we were even able to see the riders that would be a good start. Half of the lines got missed bc of the bad camera work. First they show their exact line in an animation and then they lose half of them behind a ridge.

A second run would have helped to also show more riding, but it seems like they rather waste time on rider profiles instead of ensuring a quick run of the event before the wind picks up (every year!)

Plus most of the comments here are about the riding and how some deserved better scores. So #1-3 are very valid reasons of why this event was not as enjoyable.

 I disagree. It’s good that people are recognizing that a scored free ride event like this is a stupid premise and are using the event to try to show new things in the mountain bike world. Huge chutes at the top of the mountain alone also aren’t the best use of the elevation when people can jam more drops in with more tricks. You saw that play out with semenuk’s line (and he seemed a little pissed that his diggers chose that line in his absence). But still, people are going for big insane run outs off of drops, even when they don’t score highest. If everyone were unilaterally focused on scoring high, the event would be now, and would always have been, more boring to watch.

 You guys are f*cking idiots. If you haven’t see the event in person, you have no idea how gnarly the lines are. Rheeder’s line is insane in person, very high consequence and high speed, well deserved first. Their crew also built every feature except the first drop solo, meaning they didn’t have any help to build most of the line. Canyon gap was pre built, and Dylan shared a lot of the same line. The event is the opposite of a joke, these guys risk their lives, put blood sweat and tears into it and then there is people like you guys who shit all over it and don’t appreciate it at all. Re think the content and amusement you get to watch and enjoy for free, the builders and event organizers slave away and barely get payed any. Stop being such dicks and think that because you don’t agree with judging the event is a joke. Be grateful that there is an event in mountain biking that the whole world knows about, and gets kids stoked to go pick up a bike and head outside

 I still love rampage and beleive that it is still really important to the sports progression but not like this. I understand there is nothing that can be done about the wind but just stopping the event doesn't seem the appropriate response to all their hard work. Left me asking myself would have been the impact if they rode the next day?

Redbull, if you're going to hype it up please live up to the hype. The camera work felt sloppy this year with riders being lost on their run. The presenting was awkward with no chemistry between the two. Selema I'm afraid has to go, either hasn't done his homework or doesn't know enough about the sport (I'll let you decide) but was just poor. Even the commercialisation was sloppy, Dont slap a Kia in front of me when I'm hearing about the athletes road to event. It felt cheap and did the athletes and injustice

If you know the riders have up to 10 minutes between runs and wind is expected to pick up, help the presenters and give them some material. The 'guests' worked well but again felt rushed and poorly done.

I thought the riders brought there A-game (thank you for so much entertainment and pushing the sport) as always but can be summed up by Andreu Lacondeguy 'crashing' due to what looked like a cable drum in the middle of his run. I would be fumming if I was him. Amazing event let down by the production.

Interested to know the communities thoughts
  • 5 0
 Feel the same
- poor presenting/commentary
- poor coverage with cameras losing riders but knowing exactly where their line is
- knowing that the wind would pick up in the pm but still showing a whole rider documentary before each rider
- had no expectation on the judging which has always been bs

This event is not living up to the hype and to what the riders and their crews deserved.

 @molokel: agreed on this but with some caveats...

Clearly the judging isn't easy. They've cut Vink since he lost all cred with the whole darkfest defriend letter, which means Sorge gets scored true at least (maybe even underscored this year! Can't believe I'm saying that Smile You'd think adding Bearclaw - one of the freeride gods - would be a great move, but it turns out it's still tough.

I think they need to wait until all first runs are done and then release the scores. They are all over the place early on. It would give them time to place riders more accurately and would also speed up the whole event.

Re. the commentary, C-Mac could be great if he would relax a little and stop trying to be so 'professional' and slick. Take a leaf out of Warner's laid back style and bring some personality to the table. Sal, yeah, no. And Rogatkin is just repetitive noise and endless superlatives. I have to mute him.

 It's the zooming in on the riders in the air that drives me nuts. Keep the features in the shot, show the size and length. To make it worse when they zoom in and cut off body parts....

 911. I'd like to report a robbery. Yes Godzieck was just robbed in Utah.

 Maybe I'm jaded. But seems like the commentators are super unexcited. Maybe they are calling remotely? And with the endless buffering I'm finding it hard to get stoked.

 Andreu got robbed by the Judges today but is winning with his PEROOTs edit, go check that out as he single-handedly pushes the sport 10 years forward with this new edit. Horrible judging all around.

 I have decided to upvote EVERYONE who wrote or agreed that Godziek was robbed. No disrespect to Brett but come on! Same goes with Andreu low 70s? Please...
  • 1 1
 You watched and observed carefully remembering the runs and not getting caught up in the Corral's hyped up drama for the other riders, that quickly draw the attention away from the less dramatized rider with a better run. This is a scene that always happens like mob rule even if a person is innocent. The coliseum crowd gets what they want and the judges cave to their desire. Mutiny is the end result.
  • 4 0
 No second run is a massive bummer. Judges expect a second run and score appropriately, planning to adjust scores on the second run. I know the venue is iconic but is there another place or time of year to do this where there isn't ALWAYS a wind issue?
  • 5 0
 we want Andrea Lacondeguy on the podium, he deserves better. and put those cables away next time, very bad organization, they don't even know the forecast to guess, wow, the wind is blowing
  • 4 0
 Wow.... Lecondeguy got f*cked. They need new judges! the man did a flawless run but someone left wire on the course so he gets penalized?! That and having to pay to watch live in the USA...

P.s. Hey Redbull you kinda f*cked up your biggest event. Good job.

 Guys, rampage 2023 gonna be slopestyle event. Confirmed after Rheeder's run ;D

 Yep Godziek will fit a single crown fork and show everyone what's going on! He send the gnarliest run and he can tailwhip that back flip over the canyon if he want!
  • 2 3
 The Godziek should have one, i think there is prejudiced to him being Polish honestly!

 GODZIEK ROBBED BADDLY.... that really sucks, that was SOOO much risk for a score like that, I wonder what motivation will he have next year to go back. TERRIBLE JUDGING.
  • 11 8
 Lol at all the stabs thinking Semenuk got robbed. His run wasn't clean and didn't have enough in it. Rheeder deserved the lead after rub 1 but if anyone gave him a run it was Godziek. His run. Could have beat him and I wouldn't have been mad.

 By "bs commentary filled in with sh1te", do you mean reasonably entertaining commentary to fill in otherwise awkward pauses and talking about how wind is bad?

 Every year this is an issue. Wouldn't a system like letting everyone take a run, take a little time to review and discuss, release scores before 2nd runs.
  • 3 1
 I said Rheeder Godziek Lacondeguy were up for the win. Seeing the runs it should be one of them. They risked it, rode it aggresively but controlled and put down a very good amount of tricks. The way Andreu got robbed was just nasty. Riddle is not my thing, but he rode it out stylish. Too bad to not see the second run, because some of them seemed to be test riding their lines today.
  • 4 1
 Am I the only one feeling bored? I don't know why and what, but this event doesn't have something that it had few years back. I love to watch Hardline, and I'm yawning during RBR.
