Red Bull Rampage Results 2021

Date Oct 15, 2021
Reading time

It was excellent to have Rampage back after a two year hiatus and the riding lived up to lofty expectations, despite high profile riders like Brett Rheeder, Andreu Lacondeguy, and Brage Vestavik being absent due to injury.

A couple of familiar faces stood atop the podium, the Brandon Semenuk becoming the first 4-time winner and the first back to back winner. He took the unconventional approach of riding a single crown fork so he could bar spin and tailwhip. He overshot a landing on his first run and, as the last rider of last one, went straight to the top for his second run, which he stomped. He nailed the first flat drop tail whip and the first flip whips ever seen at Rampage in a run that oozed style and competence.

Kurt Sorge may have bested Brandon in amplitude, but he couldn't compete with the level of difficulty of his tricks having to settle for second while Reed Boggs blew a tire on a huge flat drop 360 in round 1 but nailed it on his second attempt to land on the podium.

Other Awards

Brage Vestavijk - Kelly McGarry Spirit Award

Jaxson Riddle Style and Builders Award

Tom Van Steenbergen - Best Trick

The shortest results list ever from Rampage. Everyone who did a run made the top ten, even those who did most of a run.

Is it just me or is it weird that there is next to no chatter about Rampage and TvS's crash yet Ferrentino's  article gets huge play.

Rampage is a weird one for me.  

Yes it's impressive and all but so far removed from what mere mortals can do on a bike.  I can relate to WC DH/XC and EWS but not to Rampage.  As such I don't generally watch it.

Also, I think it's only a matter of time before someone seriously injury themselves (or worse).

Tom's crash colors everything about this event for me. When the penalty for a missed trick is to destroy your body, I can't applaud taking the risk.

have to agree. the amplitude (and resulting consequences for error) have grown too large to be sustainable. i think it's time to either can, or seriously re-configure the event.

It reminds me of Freesolo climbing. It should be a personal experience, no cameras, no crowds. Commercializing it makes it seem pretty dirty.
