Default Red Bull Rampage - Pretty Insane

Sunday evening update
Besides the episode that's available on Hulu, there's another one with different content that will be aired on NBC Sports Network (Ch 590 Verizon FiosHD) on Tuesday July 10 at 6:00AM and at other times in the future. Here's the page that gives details about upcoming "World of Adventure Sports" airings: http://affiliate.zap2it.com/tv/world...rts/EP00658492

Sunday afternoon update
It turns out the the entire program is available to watch on your computer on free Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/watch/201399) with only "limited" commercials, The Rampage coverage starts at about 11:20 goes to 16:25 and then starts again about 31:00. There's mundane rally cross coverage before that.


This morning after the live Tour De France coverage I happened to watch this insane event called the Red Bull Rampage on "The World of Adventure Sports" on NBC Sports Network (Ch 590 on Verizon FiosHD). Here's some video of the 2010 event to give you an idea.

From the gopro, it actually looks sane and fun aside from the 360 at the end. I miss mtn biking. I'm ready to get this back thing taken care of and get back to doing fun stuff. I'm sick and tired of looking at my house.

You haven't watched enough of the videos. There's no sanity to this. There's lots more footage if you go to You Tube. Here's one with more carnage: Turns out what I saw on TV was the 2010 event. The next event isn't until this fall.

Oh yeah, the word "looks" in my post was certainly the key word. The really mild sections and jumps in those videos are about as "extreme" as I get on a bike.

Yes. There are quite a few actually, with some being good enough to host Pro races. Check out http://dallastrails.org/trails. Also, the Dallas Off-Road Bicycle Association (DORBA) is a great group. Their site, http://www.dorba.org, is temporarily using Meetup.com, but there is still some good info there.

If you are in Frisco, Erwin Park in McKinney is the closest good trail.

I belong to Dorba but have been riding mostly paved trails. Need to either get a road bike or just get in the dirt.

Get out your wallet. You'll be buying a bike. It's a great trail. They have 4 & 6 hour endurance races out there each spring.
