Here we fucking go! Red Bull Rampage 2017 has officially kicked off and the riders are swarming all over the hill like ant on a picnic blanket.
Dust (or is it powdered stoke) is rattling down the hill side as riders take to the tools and resculpt, refine and redesign their lines. It’s nice to see plenty of new hits going in – no resting on their laurels of last year for these guys who are all determined to raise the Rampage bar once again.
there’s no official coverage allowed yet so enjoy this bumper compilation of Instabangers beamed direct from the hillside to get you stoked:

Liv and SRAM ambassador Katie Holden is on site as part of Tom’s dig team, here’s a couple more from her.
