​Red Bull Announces 2021 Rampage Athlete List

With the 20th anniversary of Red Bull Rampage just a few short weeks away, we finally got the list for who will be riding this year! The list includes the top 10 from last time, plus five wildcards and five alternates. We're stoked to see some familiar names, as well as two rookies in the mix! As always, the invite-only list was put together by a committee of former competitors, judges, pros, and industry experts based on competition results and video parts. The competition format will remain the same, with an elite group of riders carving their ultimate lines into the side of near-vertical sandstone ridges with the help of their two-person build crews. In advance of the competition, riders and their support crew will spend four days building their lines, followed by a rest day, and then four practice days. All the preparation will end in an epic showdown in the desert, where only one will ride away as the champion of the 2021 Red Bull Rampage.Scroll down to see the full list:

Ever get scared that you’re going to come up short on a jump, put in a few pedal strokes, and send it to the moon? A few days ago, Utah-based freerider and athlete Jaxson Riddle took a fall that would simply break most of us in half after going just a too deep. After building a ramp on the side of the 50-foot-tall Salt Lake City Natural History Museum, he teed up a run and ended up sending it literally to flat, exploding on the pavement below. Somehow, the young gun was able to get up and

Mullets are back in style—at least on mountain bikes. This year Juliana/Santa Cruz introduced its first-ever mixed-wheel bike, making their flag-ship enduro bike—the Roubion—even rowdier. Katie Lozancich photo. At the end of 2018, the UCI got rid of a rule that banned mixed wheels on race bikes. Unbeknownst to the organization, they opened the door to something bigger entirely. Racers started introducing mixed wheels into UCI DH and EWS events, and they caught everyone’s attention. Why?
