​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

For those of you who don’t know about the Megavalanche, it’s likely the rowdiest race you’ll ever see on two wheels. Mass tart. Crashes. Glaciers. Rocks. Crashes. Oh, and did I mention carnage? There’s really not much else to say. Take a few minutes to appreciate the gnar, and please pardon Ben Deakin’s French.  RELATED: 1500 Mountain Bikers Race Down a Glacier P.S.

Specialized Wants to Remind You That XC is Cool Too
