After 10 editions of historic competition, Red Bull Rampage has become the truest test of skill and mental toughness on a mountain bike. Touted as one of the most intense events in the world, featuring the world’s best athletes and set in one of the most demanding locations on the planet, the event has become the most coveted title in Freeride Mountain Biking.

The 11th Edition of Red Bull Rampage will take place at a new location near Virgin, UT on October 14th. The new venue and updated event format will provide a clean slate for the elite group of 21 athletes to create their own personal manmade line down the mountain without the use of power tools – no two rider’s path will be the same. This year, riders along with a 2-person build crew, are welcomed to the new site 9 days in advance of the competition to begin carving out their journey in one of the biggest tests of skill and nerve in the world.

The great equalizer of all mountain bike events, Red Bull Rampage draws slopestyle riders, downhill racers and natural-terrain freeriders together in one big-mountain test of all-around bike skill on near-vertical sandstone ridges near Virgin, Utah. The list of 21 world-class athletes competing includes the top 12 pre-qualified riders from last year plus 9 invited “Wild-Card” athletes. There will also be 5 alternates who will be called upon to compete if a rider is unable to attend the event.
