Instabangers: Red Bull Rampage day 6

There are two days to go until the biggest show in mountain biking kicks off on Friday. If you want to get adequate practice time in, there’s no room for building, only sculpting and refining. Instead it’s time to get on the sled and start taking those leaps into the unknown.

Here’s all the action from the first full day of riding:

Cam Zink

Zink, Strait and Pef have been leaving chins in the dust as they blitzed their huge lines on day one of practice.

You first. ???? Yeahhhhhhh @camzink!!!! ????????#redbullrampage #guineapig #likebutter #mtb #utah (Cam is sooooo skillled out here and really knows how to read the terrain and gauge speed but it’s still scary to watch him (and all the guys) try and figure out their approach for the first attempt)

The chute that never ends

Coming for that land speed record on Friday. @guinnessworldrecords better get their radar guns tuned up and ready to go. Top of the line is looking sick. ????: @trevorboldi | @commencalusa @srammtb @kendatire @stansnotubes @htcomponents @vans @oakleybike @661protection #redbullrampage2017 #straitrampageXII

Reed Boggs

We know Reed Boggs has a big bag of tricks but he’s also got the softly-softly skills as he shows on this creeper drop.

What six days of graft does to a spot. This 45 foot drop is no joke

Couple before and after pics of the big drop. 45ft. It's taken a lot of slapping to get it packed in.
