Red Bull Rampage 2018 - Details

Words Cam McRae
Date Oct 26, 2018

2018 marks the 13th Rampage. Riders with two diggers were given ten days to dig, and as of this evening most are just finishing and few riders have ridden a top to bottom because the wind came up on the final day of practice. This year's course is higher and steeper than ever before with less of a run out at the bottom. All killer no filler.

Ten riders are pre-qualified for the 2018 event - set on a brand new course - with another 11 vying for wildcard spots. Darren Berrecloth's retirement means there are fewer Canadians in the event than any year aside from 2004, when five Canucks made up the 12 man final, while several others competed in qualifying.

Only 8 riders have won Rampage, with Kurt Sorge winning 3, Brandon Semenuk and Kyle Strait having won 2. Cam Zink and Andreu Lacondeguy are the only other previous winners competing this year. A first time winner is a possibility, but I wouldn't lay money on it. 

Here's Tippie with a primer on some of the lines at the new venue.

If you want to go deep, here's the entire Rampage pre-show. It's long and detailed - but pretty solid stuff for hardcore fans.

Man, the seat tube on that XL is a decent 1.5-2" shorter than most XL-sized casings. I understand that individuals are purchasing greater bicycles for the scope, yet common makers you need to begin including a XXL (or bigger) to your determinations. I discover the write my essay Yeti somewhat more vivaciously. There is a segment of trail online professional essay writers ride routinely that requires and ungainly log crossing and on the Yeti I would bunny be able to jump it effectively. Actually it was riding the Yeti following multi day on the Bronson that had me understand this was in choice in the uneven territory.

Chasing 108, Queentor Abel picked up from where she left in the last game and smashed 40 off 45 balls. Her opening partner Veronica Abuga too played well for her knock of 33. The opening pair put on a partnership of 67 runs to tilt the game totally in favor of the chasing team. In the end, Kenya Women hauled the target rather comfortably in the 19th overs with 8 wickets in hand.

However, the middle order could not fire enough and they had to settle for a total of 101 in 20 overs.

Rwanda Women started off terribly as they lost both the openers for duck and were reduced to 4 for 2 in the 3rd over. Kayleen Green and Wilka Mwatile bowled exceptionally well for Namibia Women.
