Let’s face it, we all love watching the world’s best mtb riders send it at Red Bull Rampage. Backflips over canyons, massive drops, and sketchy lines at insanely high speeds make for quite the show, especially while done on Mountain Bikes.
But, crashes are inevitable, and the consequences in Virgin, Utah are unforgivable to say the least; falling off cliffs, into canyons and casing 25m jumps…you know, the usual dangers of riding your bike on, and off, a totally raw mountain.
In anticipation of the 10th edition of Rampage, let’s take a look at this compilation of the gnarliest crashes over the years.
“I was trolling for bonito off the coast of Gaviota State Beach when my kayak was hit in the back. I turned around to see a very aggressive hammerhead shark ramming/biting my kayak and decided I needed to defend myself. I hit the shark over and over and over with my paddle before he finally settled down. He then stalked me all the way back to shore, occasionally approaching me again and receiving another paddle to the face. Even after I was on shore, he remained in about 4 feet of water pacing back and forth like he was just waiting for round #2. Haha.”
Do you need a vessel so fight sharks off in? Look no further, we have kayaks in stock HERE.
Eero Ettala has been making video parts for over a decade including parts in Mack Dawg, Standard, Kurt Heine Flicks, Nitro Movie´s (Hyped! and The Bad Seeds), Oakley Movie and his own video projects. After years of filming parts and making his own movie projects he has decided to make one last full video to top them all – ENDER.

Warren Miller has captured some of the funniest chairlift fails of all time. These clips are old and golden.
Don’t end up on a video like this, get a stomp pad HERE.
Slackling with a bike has been done before. With a quick search you’ll find that even unicyclists have done it, but no one has done it on such a grand scale as Kenny Belaey.
Riding above a gorge 367′ deep across a 60′ slackline is not easy, it’s insane, and I’m glad Kenny pushed through.
