Our ive favourite runs from Red Bull Ram­page 2018

Mountain Biking UK - - UPLIFT -

In­sane, wild, ridicu­lous… Red Bull Ram­page has been the most ex­treme event in moun­tain bik­ing since its launch in 2001, and this year was no dif­fer­ent. Ev­ery au­tumn, the world’s best freerid­ers make the pil­grim­age to the Utah desert to out-trick and out-gnar each other with runs that link to­gether sketchy ridge­lines, steep plum­mets and huge jumps. The judges base their scor­ing on four cat­e­gories – the dif­fi­culty of the rider’s line, their tricks and style, flu­id­ity and con­trol, and am­pli­tude and air­time. But they’re not the only ones voic­ing opin­ions. Ev­ery year, thou­sands of us be­come in­stant ex­perts and take to the in­ter­net to slate the of­fi­cial re­sults! While we’re no big-moun­tain freeride judges, we thought we’d throw our hats in the ring and let you know what im­pressed us most at this year’s Ram­page…

This Ram­page rookie’s run may not have been full of tricks but he sent some of the big­gest drops and car­ried im­pres­sive speed and style down the whole moun­tain. We look for­ward to watch­ing the young Spa­niard up his game next year. 1 Adolf Silva go­ing full send
