Red Bull Rampage: Sizing up the new venue
Last year a catastrophic crash during the finals of Red Bull Rampage left Paul Basagoitia temporarily paralyzed.

For 2016, the number of riders has been cut, there’s renewed emphasis on natural lines, and the prize money for all contestants has been increased. The event itself has also been moved to a new location. Press play to hear rider’s initial impressions of the new venue.
