That drop down to a concrete handrail was insane.

How about some more freeride/slopestyle coverage? FEST, US Open, Nine Knights, etc. All these downcountry/ebike trends are pretty wack.

Seems like an "OK" value when it comes to DTC models. The YT Capra 27.5 Base or the Commencal Meta AM 29 Ride offer slightly improved build kits, better geo, proven performance, and a better unboxing experience for $100 less. 70 Degree seat angle???

Yeah I would completely agree.
I don't know how the vital team can consider this a decent value, when the YT base has a better component spec, option for 29 inch wheels, let alone the geometry. Sure you can call it "classic" but is that really doing justice to the reader?

In case people don’t think the sheep dogs are really a problem, just google it and you’ll find many news stories like these: https://www.vaildaily.com/news/mountain-bike-dog-attack-case-ends-with-1-million-settlement/ - www.denverpost.com/2014/08/24/guard-dogs-continue-to-frighten-hikers-on-high-mountain-trails/amp/ They are way more likely ... more »

I’ll always remember that time in the Blue mountains of Oregon when I spontaneously decided to ride a unfamiliar forest service trail. Beautiful day on a beautiful trail and about 5 miles in, the forest opened up into a big clearing with sheep......and ... more »

Semi off topic but I’m curious to know: Why does Pinkbike always seem to be 24-48 hrs ahead of Vital when posting someone’s new content? i noticed this esp for many big name vids (e.g. Semenuk, Macaskill) and now this video. This was also true for Redbull edits from Rampage. Is it because they have more people activity looking for content on their YouTube subscriptions? Contracted that way? Not hating but by the time it is posted here -it has been watched and throughly discussed over there. Vital does seem to post Cam Mccaul vids first though.............

He got 4th at what was probably the most competitive Rampage to date. Just to make the top 10 this year you had to have a pretty remarkable run. Not to mention the amount of media he's gotten in the last year and especially the last couple of weeks....more

I just hope this brings them one step closer to letting normal mtb on to Wilderness designated Forest Service lands. Forest Service has been kicking that can down the road for a long time

For the people asking “Why?”.......it is the same answer for a lot of things in the world . 1) it’s about the money and 2) older people make up the rules/laws. Every National Park I’ve visited the last 5 years had 98% of the proper singletrack trails

Added a comment about video Marzocchi Proving Grounds - Rampage Qualifier Under Construction 8/25/2019 6:20 PM

Every year there always seems to be a small segment of the mtb world that starts making claims about Rampage “losing its way” or “too slopestyle” or lost it “original spirit” ........ and I wonder - wtf do these people expect it to be??

And the only answer I can come up with is: they want it to be a glorified Downhill race- with some big drops that are straight aired.

And as I said last year, once that happens (if ever) , Redbull will pull its title sponsorship, people will lose interest and it will be “Rampage- Sponsored by Lipton Ice tea”. It will lose all clout as an extreme sports event.
