The iconic big-mountain freeride mountain bike event Red Bull Rampage goes down this week. An all-new venue, near Utah’s Zion National Park, will begin a new chapter for this legendary event.
With over $100,000 in prize money up for grabs, and a hand-selected group of the top 21 freeride mountain bikers in the world, Red Bull Rampage 2018 is not to be missed!

If you feel like practicing your foreign language skills, the broadcast will be available in English, Russian, German, Polish, Spanish, and French.
Not only can you watch live coverage of the action all day Friday, but you can also dive deep into the event through augmented reality technology. You’ll be able to explore the new Rampage course at home through a photorealistic 3D model.
You can move in and around this model with simple finger gestures. Exclusive content will include points of interest around the course with live “360-degree VR cameras, tricks and full runs overlaid on the mountain, behind the scenes footage, action highlights, interviews, and more.”
A genius feature in this augmented reality viewing experience is the in-app “billboard.” This second screen within the app will feature the livestream of the event, which will ensure you don’t miss any of the action.

Bonus Coverage: Rampage Revealed
Not only can you watch all the action live on Friday, but you can get the inside scoop on the event Thursday night. At 4:30 p.m. MDT, Rampage Revealed will “offer a live look at the final builds, with the riders giving an inside look at the final moments before event day.”
Built to Shred
Rampage competitors have to build their own lines down the 780-foot mountain, 150 more vertical feet than the old course. With this year’s new, bigger, more technical venue, riders have a blank canvas to work with — which should push the boundaries of the sport. This, of course, means a ton of work before the action starts.
Riders get four days to shape, dig, and build their path down the mountain. They only get the help of two friends and hand tools, as power tools and heavy equipment aren’t allowed. They then get four more days to practice riding and refining their creations before the big show on Friday.
Meet the Competitors
Here’s a list of all Red Bull Rampage 2018 competitors: Kurt Sorge (CAN), Cameron Zink (USA), Ethan Nell (USA), Brandon Semenuk (CAN), Brett Rheeder (CAN), Thomas Genon (BEL), Carson Storch (USA), Kyle Strait (USA), Tyler McCaul (USA), Tom van Steenbergen (CAN), Adolf Silva (ESP), Andreu Lacondeguy (ESP), Brendan Fairclough (GBR), DJ Brandt (USA), Graham Agassiz (CAN), Jordie Lunn (CAN), Pierre Edouard Ferry (FRA), Reed Boggs (USA), Rémy Métailler (FRA), Szymon Godziek (POL), Vincent Tupin (FRA).
