Red Bull Rampage!

This month I had the opportunity to check out one of the most insane extreme sporting events in the world. Red Bull Rampage brings the worlds greatest downhill mountain bikers to Southern Utah for a 3 day event that is an unbelievable spectacle and an experience that I won't ever forget. It is so remote you either have to shuttle, walk or bike in the 4 miles of dirt roads to even get to the event. It is a come at your own risk event that has unforgiving terrain, dangerous animals and riders flying down the mountain sometimes without much warning at all. Needless to say all senses had to be at the ready, especially once you start scaling the treacherous course to gain a better vantage point. I have to thank Stan Evans and Jarad Kleinberg for including me in this adventure. This was something that was definitely out of my usual type of photography, but I learned a lot and didn't come back too banged up.
