    You can only be so ready. It doesn’t matter how many hours are spent fine-tuning lines, assessing angles, dialing-in bikes – the host mountain for Red Bull Rampage almost always wins. The best riders in the world have slip-ups. Rocks give way, winds kick up, the light plays tricks on the eyes. It’s just the nature of the most challenging and exhilarating steep mountain freeride mountain bike event of the year. And 2013 was no different.

    It’s nearly “go-time” in Virgin, Utah. The athletes have arrived, and the storms came with them.

Red Bull Rampage is the “final hurrah” of another long freeride mountain bike season, as Cam Zink puts it, and it’s a fitting exclamation point.

    The Icon Sender braintrust is at peace. After six rounds of sketches, with elements added and subtracted, taking into account safety and performance , the concerns of the athletes and builders and designers, a final sketch has been decided upon. And it’s ridiculous. Five launch points. Three landings. A hip. The “Big Girl.” 360s. Backflips. Crash potential. It’s all there. The standards have been raised. Cam Zink wanted height and a kicker. Red Bull wanted something the audience had never seen. The result: heart-pounding excitement flying down each approach into each line. It’s what’s to be expected for Rampage.
