    I've been hearing about Red Bull Rampage 2008 which put a smile on my face, but I havn't actually seen any real proof. I did some research but nothing came up... If anybody has any facts I would like to know.

    I think another Rampage would be pretty sweet considering the level of riding between 2004 and 2008 has drastically change. Instead of just hucking off 30ft cliffs not that that isn't impressive in itself, but they would be tail whipping and 360ing them too.

    Yeah I remember that, but it was very seldom that somebody did a trick. I used didn't use a great example, but I think there would be alot more tricks thrown in.

    I am drawing a blank on his name, but one of the Drop In guys hit one of the stepdowns this past fall on the course and threw down a huge back flip

    Regardless it would be awesome to see another event of the kind happen to show the progression

    Haven't there been Red Bull Rampage rumors every year since they said they weren't ever planning to do it again?

    Anyone have a contact email or anything about this? Is it going to be back in Virgin or at some new undisclosed location? I am surprised that it hasnt been in any mags that I have seen

    I thought 4 years was enough. But all the biking has become really techy and BMX'ish lately. It will be nice to have big mountain back and see what happens.
    I'm really bored of slopestyle. Crankworx became really played after this year, the course was stupid.
    I doubt they do it in Virgin. After the 4th year there, they swore that was it. I wonder what's going on with it.

    Should be interesting to see none the less.
