Watch all the action live from Virgin, Utah.

NB: This year, the event will be streamed live exclusively on ESPN+ in the U.S., and on Red Bull TV in all other countries. The complete event will then be available on-demand on both ESPN+ and Red Bull TV following the competition.

 Asking MTBers to sign up for ESPN+ is like asking a teenager to sign up for a Life Alert necklace or something jesus

 @learningcycles: ESPN+ is not free with Verizon. You have to pay for ESPN (TV service). I have verizon as an ISP and don't have ESPN in any form whatsoever.

 @learningcycles: Right, that's the point. You don't get ESPN+ for free with Verizon. You have to pay for a package that includes ESPN+. The reason you have ESPN+ is because you pay for it, not just because you are on Verizon. There are many Verizon packages without ESPN+.

 If you ever use public Wi-Fi or don't like the idea of your ISP selling your browsing history, then a VPN is a pretty good thing to have.

 It would be a shame if someone broadcasted this on YouTube for people in the US that don't have ESPN+. Even more shameful and disgusting if they left a name of what YouTube channel it was on in the PB comments. There's a lot of sick lawbreakers that would do such a thing.

 I happen to have ESPN+ cause in my house we have the Hulu & Disney+ package. ESPN is NOT promoting it whatsoever and it was nowhere to be found on the site... even search didn't return results until apparently they indexed it a few minutes ago. Putting aside fair criticisms of ESPN, RBTV, and monetization for a moment, this is just really sad. That's not good for the growth of the sport, riders, fans, etc. And its absolutely pathetic on ESPNs part.

 Last year was the first time I'd watched live. I found it super-stressful and don't plan to do it again. TVS crash, ugh. And the looooong wait while that one rider was seeing if he could do caveman drop-in with the wind (was that TVS too?). I'll happily wish all the riders a safe run and wait for the highlights!

 I never watch Rampage live because one day someone will die in direct and I don't want to see that.

 really not digging red bull's new approach with their event streaming. straight rhythm was espn+ in the US and now rampage is espn+. what happened to just streaming it free on red bull tv so everyone could enjoy it live? cheap f*cks.
  • 49 17
 What a crazy thing for red bull to do, trying to earn money from an event they put on, absolute cheap a$$ ba$tard$….

 @onawalk: pretty sure they earned money for the past decade without espn+
  • 10 3
 @onawalk: i'm pretty sure they sell enough of their poison world wide to cover all events. red bull used to put these events on to stoke the community, now they've just monetized it. it's complete ass. also, you're in canada so you're still enjoying this event for free. i'd like to see how you truly feel when you have to pay to watch what was free last year and every year up until now.
  • 16 1
 So everyone else in the world gets to watch it live for free? But for Americans where this event is held we have to pay to sign up for a subscription based service? That doesn't really give me the warm fuzzies feeling.

It sounds like you’re just salty that you can’t watch it live for free?

 @onawalk: doesn't matter to me, i've already got a login. it sucks for the rest of the people who don't. the next generation of riders who look up to the guys in these events who now can't watch this live and share the stoke. that's what pisses me off. but go ahead and keep your narrow minded thinking up.

 @onawalk: I've been working for them for 22 years as an independent contractor. It's not about making money off the event. It's an advertising expense. Each year they bring on my co-sponsors which is something Red Bull rarely does for their other events.

 @onawalk: let’s see what you say when u have to pay for the best event of the year.
  • 4 7
 @novajustin: @novajustin: It’s so good that you were here to be vicariously offended for the children! Since you have a login, I can only assume you’re sharing that with others, especially the children, so they can have their stoke increased.

If only there was some format to share pics and videos, done both professionally and by amateurs, curated by title, and interest, that was ad supported, so the money didn’t come out of the pockets of the children. Maybe there could also be enthusiast websites, where people could go daily to get ad supported content, again, so the money didn’t come out of the pockets of the children…

In fairness my man, I’m just poking at you, no harm meant. I might think it’s silly to be upset by it, but hell, I got upset on my commute for some ding-a-ling not using their indicator. The price we pay for all the abundance and opportunity we have.

Keep fit, and have fun
  • 5 2
 @vandall: cool man,
Ultimately bringing on other sponsors lessens the financial burden directly on RedBull. It’s always about making money, RedBull does not put on events without some sort of financial benefit to them selves.

I’m not sure why people have issue with that, but I’m open to hearing arguments on both sides

 @onawalk:
I'd bet money you'd be b*tching if you didn't get to watch it for free up there in cannuck-a-stan. For those of us who got screwed buying tickets (sold out in 2 second), didn't want to pay $150 for a GA ticket (used to be $15), and don't care to support ESPN (cuz wtf else am I going to watch, sportsball?), this is a crying shame.

RedBull, H5 Events and ESPN - y'all aren't welcome in Utah if you're just gonna come destroy our landscape, monetize athletes without providing insurance or fair compensation, and leave shit-pile of trash in the desert. If, however, I got to watch this event I may look past your egregious oversight in screwing the local community out of viewing the event.

 @Bubbaace: honestly,
It’s a cool event, but, and feel free to lambaste me here, I might lean towards the opinion of Henry Quinney when I say, I’m not really into slopestyle events. This feels like a slopestyle event again.
Nothing against anyone, they are unreal, phenomenal athletes, and I have the utmost respect..
I’ll happily watch highlights, and be in wonder and amazement of what I’m watching.

I think Lacondeguy, Sorge and Brage bring an element that I enjoy more than the clinical stylings of Rheeder and Semenuk, but I certainly don’t shit on anyone who enjoys that.
It’s all beyond my abilities, and can’t wait to one day go to the area to better grasp the scale of it.

Keep fit, and have fun

 @michael-polei: sounds tough out there man,
I’ll be watching out for the event you host, that’ll obviously be free to watch and attend.

The more advanced notice you can give me the better, however I am due for another visit to Utah. Love me some RedRock Brewery

 If they HAVE to monetize it, they should have done it PPV for $10 (similar to UFC) vs making you subscribe (then promptly cancelling).

 @onawalk:
We're talking about mountain bikers. You know, the dudes that sleep in the parking lot of races, sneak into hotel pools for showers and wash their bikes with hose bibs on the back of a McDonalds. This event asking us to buy a sportsball subscription is ridiculous.

I'd be happy to give $10 to every rider out there in fair compensation. But when the money is going to line Disney's pockets, its a sad state for our sport.

But hey, you sound to me like a guy that just picked up a bike during the pandemic, have a pair of elbow pads and a mouth that runs faster than you bike. So, uh, enjoy the new rampage - it seems to be designed just for the likes of you

 @michael-polei: Youre pretty cool eh,

 So much bitching over paying $10's to watch the pinnacle of freeriding. People pay $79 to watch a UFC fight and don't spend the whole time complaining or asking why it isn't free. It's great that Red Bull has streamed these live events historically for free (part of branding), however I also think that it wouldn't be the worst tragedy in the world to expect to pay 10 bucks or so once a year to watch the best bikers in the world entertain us for 4 hours.

 @Joyrode: I see your point and I guess I should be more specific. I think it should be either a) highly rewarded to ride really technical gnarly sections (think loose skidders, or multiple consecutive smaller drops, things like that. OR b) Lines that lack that element and are too groomed/ buffed out have some sort of penalty attached. That is all I am trying to say. I just don't think the stuff that is incredibly gnarly in real life to ride transfers very well to the home audience and is not getting the points it deserves.
