VIRGIN, UT – Tickets for the 2015 Red Bull Rampage go on sale today.

WHISTLER, BC – Speed and Style. Perhaps no other event captures two of the purest elements of mountain biking, often found to be at opposite ends of the spectrum by most. When it comes to gravity fueled competition, many riders consider themselves racers or freeriders, but it takes a certain kind of talent to compete in both, let alone at the same time. It's no wonder then that list of competitors from the Whistler stop of Crankworx reads like a roster of mountain biking's modern pioneers.
