What: Red Bull Rampage
Where: Project Bike
When: Friday, October 27th @ 9am
Every year Red Bull hosts the pinnacle of freeride events, Red Bull Rampage. It is during this event that 21 of the biggest names in freeride mountain biking gather in Virgin, Utah to push their limits. Each year we get to experience this evolution of our sport. Bend’s very own Carson Storch will be going big again this year and we wanted to invite the Bend community to watch and cheer him on. Red Bull themselves will be joining us.
How does Rampage work?
Twenty-one riders are invited to participate in the event. Ten (including Carson Storch) of these riders have prequalified from the previous years’ events and eleven have been chosen as wildcards. All of the riders have three days to dig their own line down the predetermined riding area. Without the use of power tools, they are allowed two diggers to help create their line during those three days. They are then given four days to practice their lines and prepare for the main event. On the day of the event, Friday October 27th, they will put it all on the line to be named the master of Freeride.
The use of creative lines, building knowledge and riding style all need to be utilized in this ultimate test of skill.
Rampage at Project Bike
We will be hosting a screening in conjunction with Red Bull here at Project Bike on Friday, October 27th from 9am to 3pm (or end of event depending on weather and conditions). We will be serving breakfast and coffee followed by beer and other beverages later in the day. All are welcome to join and hang with us! There is no cost or entry fee. Just come ready to witness some of the best riders in the sport throw down big mountain style!
