Red Bull Rampage is an event unlike any other. Videos and images of riders doing the impossible on the day of the event shape Rampage in the mind of the general public. But behind the scenes, the time and dedication these riders and their dig crews put into shaping the legendary Virgin, Utah dirt to create their lines is a key part of what makes Rampage the event it is. Landings and takeoffs are built with hardwork, sweat, and sandbags, and this year weather made for an interesting dig week, but the end result was a thing of beauty. From the riding to the course itself, at its heart, Rampage is all about creativity and pushing the boundaries of what it means to ride a bicycle.
After the event was cancelled in 2020, the rider list for this year was reduced to only 12, and Stan's wheels were under an amazing five of the top ten riders and claimed two of three podium spots. We wanted to take a moment to congratulate those riders, not only for their finishes, but also for the vision they have to see the possible where the rest of us see only the impossible. Through the cameras of Stan's own Kenny Wehn (who happens to also have built most of the riders' wheels) and Fraser Britton, here's our celebration of the art of Red Bull Rampage.
