Instabangers: Red Bull Rampage 2016 Day 1

Scraping, scoping and thinking

Red Bull Rampage is back for another with a heap of changes this year. Most importantly there are fewer riders on the hill so riders can have far more individuality with line choice and building.

With just ten days to scrape out a masterpiece, boots were on the ground early to scope out the best spots at the new site. Here’s the very best action from day one of the competition:

Tyler McCaul

Oh yes, this new site is burly. Tyler McCaul reckons there’s a line down this ridgline. Really?!

Andreu Lacondeguy

With a year of FEST events behind him and claiming the ‘sickest line’ early, we can’t wait to see what Andreu is cooking up for next Sunday.

Number 21 seems a bit high for the 2014 winner surely…

Stoked to be out here building a sick line and riding my bike for the next 10 days!

Brett Rheeder

It’s all natural this year. Brett Rheeder sketches out a route down a canyon.

Cam Zink

Zink has already christened his line the Canimal. How big can he go this year?

Our line is mental… "Canimal line" with @andreulacondeguy through the #oakleyprizm

Kyle Strait

Kyle Strait has been at every Rampage since 2001 and has won it twice. Legendary Lyle is on site again this year and won’t be fazed by another new venue.

Smashed. First dig day done. Line found. #rampage2016

Darren Berrecloth

He can’t be riding down that can he?? Bearclaw seeing lines that are invisible to everyone else as usual.

It's on! @dberrecloth just wrapped up day 1 of digging at #redbullrampage

Graham Agassiz

The last site was plagued with bad luck for Aggy, let’s hope he turns it around here.
