Dirt is reporting that the Red Bull Rampage, that big-mountain, hairy-chested huckfest, will be making a return this October. The Rampage hasn’t been held since 2004, at which point it was the freeride competition, attracting the biggest names in the gravity world to hurl themselves down monstrous cliffs with precious little respect for the law of gravity (or even Darwinism).
Since 2004, however, the freeride scene has changed pretty dramatically. The fixation on monster drops has shifted in favour of flow, technical lines, and style, but there’s a little part in every gravity rider that just loves to see a Bender-esque cliff drop. We can’t wait to see what happens when the old-school hucking and the new-school flavour come together in Utah this October.
