Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Change About Red Bull Rampage?
@YoungGun13: Thats exactly it. The best run format can lead to "victory" laps where guys mail it in after putting down a great first run, but whats the flip side? If you go to an average of two runs what happens when someone screws up their first run? You would just have those guys mailing in run #2 because they have no chance to win.

I’m not sure the venue is big enough to eliminate line shareing. There are only so many safe ways down the mountain.

Why are you blaming redbull for turning it into huge slope contest (which I don’t really agree is the case). On the suggestion of the riders a few years ago redbull removed all the wood features and gave the build teams more time to work in their lines. This is had led to what you see today, because it’s what the riders wanted. Blame them if you don’t like it.

I think it means they remove them when they move to a new venue, not if they plan to go back there next year.

@WAKIdesigns: " I’m not judgmental about anyone else than judgmental people" (I did it again) This could be the most ridiculous comment I have ever seen. You head is so far up your own ass I don't know how you can even see your screen to type.

@stacykohut: If you look at any action sports contests they always use a best run format because it encourages riders to bust out their biggest tricks/runs, knowing they can mess up and have another chance. If you don’t alllow the throw away run then you would likely see a lot more conservative riding, which obviously isn’t good for the entertainment factor.

@WAKIdesigns: “Bunch of entitled, judgmental a*sholes who know everything“ Sound like just about every comment you make here.

@BiNARYBiKE: I’ve never been a fan of the way some of these guys chip away at the mountain. Adding to the mountain is one thing, as kickers, landings, sandbags etc can all be torn down. But chipping away at the faces and removing huge pieces of rock has always made me cringe a little.
