Yesterday the Red Bull Rampage qualifying rounds took place after a weather delay earlier in the weekend. The freeride / downhill MTB competition is being held near Virgin, UT just outside St. George – the first Red Bull Rampage since 2004. The singletracks crew was in the vicinity just a couple weeks ago and from a distance we saw some of the rock formations on course – and all I can say is sick. To give you an idea of how remote and extreme this terrain is: spectators were asked to park in a designated parking area 4 miles from the course and hike or bike to the action.
Here are a few pics from the competition, check out more up to date info on the Red Bull Rampage website.
