August 18, 2014 (Santa Monica, CA) – Since 2008, Red Bull Rampage: The Evolution has taken place on a series of cliffs outside of Virgin, Utah whose big obstacles have catapulted athletes into the record books. In the spirit of progression and always moving forward, the event is going in a new direction – literally – off the back cliffs of the previous course. Often the fodder for speculation on what mysterious ridges lay in the shadowƒs, now the whole world will find out on September 26-28th, 2014 what happens when the best 40 mountain bikers in the world traverse this never-before-used course.
Gone are the claimed lines, groomed run ins and massive built features. Instead the riders will find themselves traversing a new set of exposed ridges, a raw canvas that will be a mix of excitement and challenge to even the most seasoned veterans. Each rider will given equal opportunity to scout the new course with extra days built in for line design, and have a regulated number of build crew to ensure fair chance to conceive and construct their line. Part athlete, part artist, each rider must find their path from top to bottom down 1,000 feet of vertical ridges with untold options only limited by their bravery. With potential options including knife-edge ridges, massive wall rides, and new canyon gap, this year’s Red Bull Rampage presented by Go Pro, will be the biggest challenge yet for those seeking to make their mark in the most hallowed event in the sport. The event is part of the Red Bull Signature Series, the most progressive collection of action sports events in the world, all airing on NBC.
