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.
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.

Enjoy the story of my 2015 ski season. From shredding powder in Jackson Hole, to sunny park skiing in Squaw Valley & Mammoth, to winning the Subaru Freeride Series overall title while getting 1st place in Telluride and receiving the Sickbird Award… “twenty15″ could not have been a better and more fun season.
Thanks to all those who made this year what it was. Hope you enjoy!

For the last five decades, Whistler Blackcomb has left its mark on those who are drawn to the mountains. What started as a single Olympic dream in 1966 has evolved into the largest ski resort in North America, with a slew of accomplishments to back it up. From the resort’s adventure-seeking founders to its freestyle heydays-and breaking Guinness World Records along the way-snowsport industry legends recount the contributions that Whistler Blackcomb has made to skiing and snowboarding and the significance of its golden anniversary. But while 50 Years of Going Beyond solidifies the resort’s legacy in the past, there is no denying that the last 50 years is just the beginning.
