Over the weekend mountain biker Kurt Sorge won Red Bull Rampage–the world’s premier freeride mountain biking competition–and Bike magazine was there to recap everything, including by posting plenty of photos of the event. Of the win, Bike correspondent Seb Kemp wrote: “As the riders move to the corral, Sorge is waiting for the last rider to get down safe so that he knows he has the crown. When Cam McCaul finishes his run Sorge’s posse swarms him and lifts him above there heads. “VEGAS! VEGAS! TEN PERCENT!” they cry, clearly ready to share in the celebrations tonight. Other riders come by to give him their heartfelt congratulations. Mike Kinrade, a veteran of Rampage, plants his cooler, extracts a beer, and hands it to Sorge. Once the beer is downed Sorge is passed the Rampage trophy, which he lifts high. With his name added to the illustrious list of winners, his mark is forever left in the Utah desert and the minds of mountain biking fans.” To read Kemp’s full story, click here.
