News just in that Brendan Fairclough is out of Red Bull Rampage, leaving the space open for Ryan 'R-Dog' Howard to take his place. Some of you may recall seeing this injury on Brendan's Instagram, but with no evidence on the internet of it happening this may either be the shin tearing open again or it is indeed a new injury. Either way, it's pretty horrific looking.
Don't say you weren't warned! Apparently, this wound called for forty stitches and he is, of course, pretty upset about missing the big show in Utah. You'll remember this isn't the first time this has happened to Brendan; after a brutal case last year, he was out of finals also.
Ryan is, on the other hand, pretty stoked to be taking part in Rampage, and you can see him in action next week.
Our theory was that with Remy Metailler reportedly out of Rampage
this year due to visa issues, R-Dog was taking his place, but that doesn't seem to be the case now. So if Remy doesn't make it, who's in?
