The History Of Red Bull Rampage Told By Darren Berrecloth
Red Bull Rampage returns on 14th October in Virgin, Utah. With a new format and a venue upgrade Rampage 2016 will see the world’s bravest, gnarliest riders battle it out in the ultimate game of ‘go big, or go home’. Darren “Bearclaw” Berrecloth takes us through the brutal history of big drops, big air and big stacks. We can’t wait!
“There are two eras of freeride mountain biking: Pre-Claw and After-Claw â Darren “Bearclaw” Berrecloth simply came into the an already exciting scene and blew the doors wide open. The Canadian rider brought BMX-style tricks to gravel pits and booters all over the west coast before convincing Rampage organizers to let him prove himself, last minute. Doubtful that a young, cocky unknown rider could hang with legends in the making like Wade Simmons and Andrew Shandro, âThe Clawâ was invited to ride a Virgin, Utah test trail named King Kong. The rest is history.”
