    Red Bull Rampage is right around the corner!

    It started with rumors, then talk came from some more accurate and trusted sources... now, as most of you already know, it's official. The Rampage is on once again and is right around the corner. October 2-5

    I will be riding in the comp and am looking for your support... er ...just kidding. I will be spectating with my bro-in-law(whippit) and I believe Otter will be along. Wondering if anyone else will be there.

    If you're planning on attending, you should read the spectator information and advisory.
    http://redbullrampage.com/news/2008/...ampage-spe.php

    Viewers will be limited to the finish line area only for viewing and will have to make the 4 mile trek from the parking lot via bike or foot - no motorized vehicles.

    Sounds like a blast. I'm looking forward to attending my first Rampage.

    Im stoked to see the footage of it. Sadly as of now it doesn't look like I can get out there to watch. Looks like it should be as sweet as/ sweeter than the last ones!

    There will be carnage, and I am trying to rally a few people to make the effort to go. It't will be sick, for sure.

    Truth,
    Did you get some credentials, and if so who did you contact? I would like to go down to shoot as well.

    Otter and truth, I think you guys need to get extra media passes for your "assistants" as well... nudge nudge, wink wink.

    Anyone know if they are doing any sort of delay on the competition because of weather? It looks like its going to be raining all day sat/sunday.

    They need to be packing and riding that stuff while the rain falls.




    I imagine a delay wouldn't be out of the question. For the most part, this is the most important thing these guys are doing for the next week. Seems like a monday final/saturday qualifier shouldn't be out of the question.
