After a couple days of solid practice and guinea pigging, qualifications came up quickly at Red Bull Rampage. It was glorious for some and a nightmare for others. A huge heal up to Jeff Herb, Nico Vink and T-Mac. We’re unsure if T-Mac will make the finals but we’ll keep you tuned. Herb apparently had a compound fracture somewhere on his leg and Nico has a busted foot after attempting his line which was hands down the gnarliest feature on the entire mountain. Here are the goods from yesterday for now. Stay tuned for finals.

This photo does it no justice. One of the gnarliest lines on the moutain. James Doerfling greased it with a busted and gashed open hand. We're bummed he didn't score higher.

Brendog - 1 foot contact patch to land on and about 60 foot drop on his right. World Cup precision. It's insane how non-challant he is.
