Today was a tough pill to swallow for the athletes at Red Bull Rampage. There was some very inconsistent blustery winds coming through on and off. Dropping in off off of the upper ridge and sending some huge lines in big wind would put the riders in a seriously compromised position. Lots of guys had crashes and eventually the weather broke and qualifying got called off until tomorrow morning.
Sadly, Graham Agassiz – the crowd favorite, saw the worst of it when he came up just about 3 feet short on a massive fully exposed drop. Fortunately, Aggy is healthy and ready to charge tomorrow. What an animal! We’re just hoping the weather cooperates. Stay tuned.
