Rampage Qualifier Results & Finals Start List

Date Oct 15, 2015
Tyler McCaul - Action

Tyler McCaul lit up practice and qualifying with this drop, which he dubbed El Presidente.

 

Its mystique has grown with every year. For a select few, it is a kingmaker. The rest can hope that heartbreak will be the worst consequence they face. Winning is reserved for a handful, but even for them, it is the last of many challenges to overcome. For many, just to be invited may be a career achievement. Then you must successfully scope and build a line. Even then, you’re only halfway there, because now you have to ride what you’ve built. Your claim is staked well in advance, for all to see. Friends come to help, risking their own safety, perched on a cliff, helping to dig and shape your dusty, consequence-laden tightrope in the desert. Three, four days pass. Heat stroke, spiders, falling rock. Finally your line is ready. Did you bite off too much? Too little? Can you ride right on the edge and score enough points to make it to the final?

All week we have been treated to a cascade of photos and videos, detailing riders’ line choices and decisions, guinea pig runs and fending off poachers. The amount of great moments we’ve already witnessed this week make the final seem like it might be anti-climactic – except that we know better. Nine times this event has delivered. Tomorrow will not be an exception.

For an event that requires a winner to defy physics in order to win, it had a final trick up its sleeve this year: the finals were pushed forward a day due to a sketchy weather forecast. Time is also defying physics this week, because it has accelerated as the week has passed us by.

Graham Agassiz-Action

Graham Agassiz is a perennial favourite – and hard luck sufferer at Rampage. He’s running a similar line to the one he shared with defending champion Andreu Lacondeguy.
