Southwest, Utah (June 29, 2021) – Red Bull is thrilled to announce the return of the premier big-mountain freeride event in the sport – Red Bull Rampage. Marking the 20-year anniversary of some of the biggest and baddest tricks, lines, and moments in freeriding history, 15 of the world’s best riders will descend upon the rugged desert landscape of Southern Utah on October 15 for the return of Red Bull Rampage. The inaugural Red Bull Rampage was held in 2001, and since then, 14 different events and 9 different winners have earmarked their place in the history books. For the 20th anniversary, get ready to celebrate as we not only look back at some of the best moments and stories from over the years, but also highlight the progression, tricks and technology that have shaped the contest throughout the years. The competition format will remain the same, with an elite group of riders carving their ultimate lines into the side of near-vertical sandstone ridges with the help of their two-person build crews. In advance of the competition, riders and their support crew will spend four days building their lines, followed by a rest day, and then four practice days. All the preparation will end in an epic showdown in the desert, where only one will ride away as the champion of the 2021 Red Bull Rampage. To stay up to date on the latest Red Bull Rampage information, including confirmation of the official rider list, venue details, Red Bull TV livestream tune-in times and potential spectator and ticketing info pending COVID guidelines from local/national authorities, follow @RedBullBike and read the following story here.

CANVAS refers to the open landscape that is Utah. With the ability to build and ride exactly what you can invision … As a rider, does it get any better than that? Having competed in Rampage on multiple occasions, it was a treat to be able to visit the desert without all the stress of Redbull Rampage. To build, film and ride for 3 weeks straight with Calvin Huth and Peter Jamison was an absolute blast. I hope you all enjoy! Thank you to the sponsors for helping make this happen!

When Mexican freerider Johny Salido held a wildcard for Red Bull Rampage in his hands by finishing second at Marzocchi Proving Grounds in September 2019, he was completely overwhelmed. This was his opportunity to make his biggest dream a reality. With his new documentary Johny shows how much Red Bull Rampage means to him. A heavy crash one day before the final of the event adds an emotional element to an open and honest view on Johny’s Rampage journey.
