red bull rampage 2013 - my impressions

mountain kyle strait red bull rampage 2013


i recently discovered mountain biking.

even more recently i discovered red bull rampage.

riders build their own lines and are scored on quality of their descent by judges.

in virgin, utah, usa.


my impressions:

– nice idea!

– very good to see a very real live coverage, instead of edited and polished up documentaries

– i smell the fear and i witness the skill & talent

– 4+ hours, instead of usual quick stuff

– some pros fell in first few meters, nice to see they are human

– its the little stuff that causes problems

– these people (riders, builders, organizers) are amazing!


watch the 4+h video at

and i still do not care about sugary water branded as red bull.


bravo kyle strait!
