On September 16, RockShox pros Ryan Howard and Red Bull Rampage winner Kurt Sorge played a best of three game of B.I.K.E. up in Kamloops, B.C. RockShox put up $5,000 for the winner, as long as the game was played over Facebook on the RockShox wall so everyone could watch and participate.
B.I.K.E. is essentially a game of H.O.R.S.E., but with each rider thowing down trick runs instead of trick shots.
What they didn’t tell you then was in addition to the low-res webcams they shot the live game with — RockShox also hauled a full film crew and a mini-helicopter up to the ‘Loops to catch the action in full cinematic quality. (You didn’t really think they’d let Howard and Sorge throw down and only take a few camera phones, did you?)
Now RockShox has released the full game, along with extended footage, the Vegas segment of the loser’s henna chest tattoo, and they threw out a little teaser for what they have planned next year.
