​Kurt Sorge Three-Peats Red Bull Rampage

Moments ago, Kurt Sorge made history, winning the 2017 Red Bull Rampage for the third time. His first run landed him a near-perfect score 92.66, featuring three of the biggest backflips ever done on a bike. Sorge was the last man standing after Cam Zink under rotated a surprise frontflip on his second run. Third place went to rookie Ethan Nell, a testament to the future of the sport.

The Kelly McGarry Spirit Award, given in honor of the late Kelly McGarry to the rider who most exemplifies the stoke and passion of the sport, went to France’s Pierre Edouard Ferry.

The People’s Choice Award went to Antoine Bizet. Viewers were surprised when a run including three single flips and one double backflip was only awarded 81.66, prompting an outcry on social media involving #bizetgotrobbed.

Final Standings:

Kurt Sorge: 92.66

Cam Zink: 90.33

Ethan Nell: 90.00

Video: The Funny Truth About Buying A Mountain Bike

IFHT Films knows a thing or two about mountain bike humor, and their latest short tells exactly what it’s like to get into the world of mountain biking. It goes something like this: see someone else having fun on a bike, buy sh***y bike, hate it. Buy better bike, break it. Buy nice bike, love it. Get hooked on the sport and empty your wallet on it. We can all relate, can’t we? RELATED: Micayla Gatto + IFHT Films = Kendrick Lamar and Bikes

Park City Reclaims Shot-Ski World Record from Breckenridge

In the most recent installment of what seems to be a constant game of one-upmanship, Park City has yet again unseated Breckenridge as the home of the world’s longest shot-ski.  Not to be outdone after having its 2016 record broken by Breckenridge at the 2017 Ullrfest, Park City’s local Rotary Club teamed up with High West Distillery. The team filled 1,275 shot glasses with double rye whiskey to be downed in relative unison, and knocked them all back. RELATED: Car Camper Hosts

Get a Sneak Peak of the New Red Bull Rampage Course

While Red Bull Rampage is raw, gnarly, and intense, it's also one of the most unique events within the mountain biking industry. That's pretty clearly evident in the fact that there isn't actually one set course. The lines are decided by the riders. Each of the 21 competitors is given complete creative freedom to craft their dream line in the Utah sandstone, which means no two runs will be alike.
