Cam Zink: Freeride Mountain Biker and World Record-Holder

Get a glimpse into one rider’s history of riding at Red Bull Rampage and what he’s accomplished since.

There are lots of amazing professional mountain bikers out there. But Cam Zink is one of the few that will really blow you away — not with his talent but with his mindset and attitude.

As soon as Zink started riding, he was jumping off massive drops and pushing himself, and his bike, to the limit. He’s ridden in the infamous Red Bull Rampage freeride event three times and has pulled off some of the craziest flips ever attempted on two wheels.

He’s also the Guinness world record-holder for the biggest backflip. So it’s no surprise that to accomplish all that, he must have steadfast, unwavering confidence and love for the sport.
