Scott sent no less than seven athletes to Red Bull Rampage this year, each armed with the latest Gambler downhill bike. Three made it to the finals with Brendan Fairclough, above, and Paul Basagoitia, below, cracking the top ten and Louis Reboul nearly cracking himself when he came up just a bit short attempting to backflip the 70-foot canyon gap. He was carried off site on a backboard but was cleared at a local hospital and will make a full recovery.
Rampage isn’t just a bunch of dudes hucking off a mountain. Weeks of planning, backbreaking work and incredible pressure go in to making the event happen and making it to the top step. Scott Sports captured all the action in its latest Moments Of series with a special mini-site dedicated to the action. Check it out at momentsofsport.com/rampage.
