Interview: Vaea Verbeeck on Women Competing at Red Bull Rampage
absolutely. why do women need a "safe space" event at virgin utah sponsored by redbull? just gather your friends and go ride your bikes. redbull never needed to be a part of formation. The fact that they even agreed to lend their support to a closed door, no media, no spectators event is all the proof people need that they do support women's freeriding. women freeriders to redbull: you can fund an event in the desert for women, but without any media coverage, spectators or marketing potential that you'd typically see from all your other events? redbull: lets do this.

Interview: Vaea Verbeeck on Women Competing at Red Bull Rampage
THIS! absolutely THIS. They could make something that could steal the spotlight from Rampage if they tried hard enough. Thinking it's either Rampage or Bust is just self-defeating. It seems like the options are: SQUEEZE rampage and dramatically cut down on all the pomp and fanfare (which, btw, helps to hype up the riders and educate the general public about the riders), or start your own event that isn't absolutely crunched for time, where you can take the time to hype up the riders, discuss the history of women's freeriding and get future riders stoked on their new heroes. 1) a quick conveyor belt of riders, partially filmed live or 2) a glorious event solely dedicated to women freeriders

Interview: Vaea Verbeeck on Women Competing at Red Bull Rampage
People on social media need to chill the hell out with the whole #letthemride spiel. Everyone jumped on the bandwagon without knowing any context and made Redbull out to be the enemy. Redbull seems like they're not convinced that the logistics of adding a women's field to rampage makes sense. Seems like they were open to the idea of it, there was back-and-forth, and they were suggesting the women restart formation and turn it into a competitive event. I do think the way formation was designed to be non-competitive, not a media event, no spectators was a horrible idea from the beginning and extremely self-defeating. You took what could've been great proof of concept for women in rampage, and you removed all the variables that a giant marketing company like Redbull use to measure the viability and success of the event. Why do you need a redbull sponsored event to get women into riding freeride lines in utah? Proving grounds invites women. Use that as a qualifier. If the goal is simply to get a bunch of women together in virgin utah, then why does redbull need to be involved at all? there's no marketing ROI in that. It's not really a spectacle. I personally think formation could become the female version of rampage, and the idea that anything less than rampage would be a failure is total bs. Redbull literally wanted to go this route, but it was rejected because women want the platform of rampage or no platform at all, apparently. Trying to squeeze another field of riders into rampage seems extremely difficult. You absolutely need to film the first runs live because often riders will crash, the wind will change, or they stomped their first run and simply deemed the risk too high to take a second run. Getting rid of all the broadcast fluff could help for sure, but this isn't realistically feasible without reducing the size of the men's field--which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. I think the lesson is that all the social justice keyboard warriors were way too quick to jump to conclusions and need to seriously chill with the cancel culture bs. Redbull absolutely supports women freeriders.

Throwback Thursday: 15 of the Best Women's Freeride Edits
pinkbike: put up or shut up. you guys have the money to organize and throw your absolutely cringe-worthy PB Academy that literally no one likes. You could very easily throw your own rampage style event w/ the help of your corporate overlords. Anything less is just empty pandering and trying to align your brand on the good side of this debate, as others have pointed out.
