The Riders

There are some big names missing this year. Graham Aggassiz is the most accomplished athlete who was there last year to miss 2017. Aggy had a rough injury year after breaking his hip at Rampage 2016. James Doerfling spent much of the summer and fall fighting forest fires and didn't have time to prepare so he's out as well. Kyle "Norby" Norbraten (just kidding) has decided not to take part this year after getting engaged at last year's event. Coincidence? Kyle will have to tell us that. Rémy Métailler had trouble at the US border. Blame Trump. Brendan Fairclough is out with a nasty gash in his leg, after injuring himself in practice last year. 

Rampage Rider List

This list is correct aside from an injured Brendan Fairclough and Ryan "R-Dogg" Howard who will take his place. 

The Steepest Line Ever at Rampage

This is the kind of thing that blows me away. Kyle Strait will be dropping a near vertical face that he describes as "I don't know how many hundred feet'" along with Cam Zink and Pierre Edoard Ferry of France. 

Judging

In the past there were always some judges who hadn't competed at Rampage, including head judge Paul Rak. Last year was the first all alumni judging I believe . And this year's panel is identical to last year. 


All the judges this year have competed in Rampage in the past; Randy Spangler (USA, head judge), Kyle Jameson (USA), Nico Vink (Belgium), Geoff Gulevich (Canada), Mike Kinrade (Canada), and Josh Bender (USA).

Without Bender There is No Rampage

Conor is out too. Took a knock to the head in a big digger in practice. On his instagram, he says that his balance is not at %100 and his head is sore....good call on his part IMO.
