It was absolutely, unequivocally, epic. The 2010 Red Bull Rampage event near Virgin, Utah – the most insane mountain bike freeriding event on the planet – took the sport to new levels in early October…with the help of Oakley, that is. And now you get to catch a glimpse of it all on cable TV as NBC’s popular World of Adventure Sports show – and its host Pat Parnell – takes you right into the heart of the action in the barren Utah desert. It all goes down this Sunday, Nov. 14 at 12 p.m. Pacific/3 p.m. Eastern on your local NBC station.
Perfect O Storm: Cam Zink Throws Down 360 Off of Oakley’s ‘Icon Sender’ to Triumph at Red Bull Rampage 2010
It was a perfect O storm…literally. Oakley Team Rider Cam Zink threw down a huge 360 off of Oakley’s much-feared, artistically stunning feature, the ‘Icon Sender,’ to emerge victorious with the ‘Best Trick’ Award and the overall win at Red Bull Rampage 2010. To top if all off, the triumph secured him the Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour Season Overall Title. Just a day before the finals in Virgin, Utah, intense wind and lightning storms tore through the event site as athletes prepped for the big day. Fast forward to Sunday: despite rapidly changing weather conditions – marked by sporadic rain, lightning and wind – the most insane finals in Rampage history went down. And Oakley was clearly the star.
