    I will be there with a few friends, Gonna hit some fun more pedally trails while we are down there. Excited to see crazy a$$holes going off. I am a little bummed to see more and more man made features but that is the direction things are headed. I wish they would have used more rough cut lumbar and logs, not discrediting what they are going just sharing my opinion, either way it will be rad.

    believe me...almost nothing grows there...we are camping by the Virgin River East of the RB site...not the camp grounds across the old RB site...that is the theory so far...I will have the silver 4Runner with OCTOMAN license plates...

    I live in northern utah, I know not much grows in southern utah. I just think it would look LESS slopstyle ish... Just my perspective, I know lumbar from the lumberyard is far easier to work with and obtain I just think it would look more fitting and people would ***** less, hehe. I remember the last one there was a fair amount of griping going on about any of the wood features so I am sure its coming from more than me this time too, haha. Maybe not.

    Big Mountain Slopestyle seems interesting especially after everything some of the riders have been doing for the filming of "Where the trail ends", they're going to be going HUGE.

    For those of us in the US who can't make the trip, the internet broadcast is geoblocked. I'm assuming that is because of the tv broadcast in December?

    I am pessimistic that it'll be worth it to go this year. You have to be in a designated area near the finish line this year. Are the spectators even going to be able to view much of it???

    Wait, are they geoblocking the US? I haven't heard anything about it. If I can't watch it live, I will lose a lot of respect for Red Bull, or whoever airs it.

    WTF is the point of Geoblocking in the US? because we totally wont hear the results before Dec 8th? and there wont be any review videos or anything before dec 8th? FFS I was planning on watching it live on the interweb, then the NBC crap in Dec. Redbull just lost a lot of my respect.

    Moosey don't be svckie....Red Bull puts on a huge event and needs to make money to keep it going....Yeah let people see it for free and who pays for the 3D HD camera rentals, Helicopters and what not...if everyone sees it before NBC airs it then less advertising revenue...The reason it isn't live is they need to edit it first

    Furthermore...you are pretty close....GET OFF YOUR @$$ and go to it...it is amazing the size of all this stuff they do...TV does it no justice

    Sorry, didn't realize I suck, or "svck" because I don't get why the rest of the world gets to see it before me, and I have no way of getting there, unless I ride my dirtjumper for 23 hours, which is a bit impractical. I'm 18, and just started college, and have no vehicle. Nothing I do can get me there. Chill out bro, so me, and everyone on the east coast who cant drop a couple hundo to fly out will have to wait till Dec 8th. Or drive to Canada to catch the live broadcast. If they're not going to show it to everyone, I can deal with that, but to only block the US, that seems a bit dickish. I'll probably ride down to my local Micky D's and proxy it there. stupid college computer control blocks all proxys.

    I'm up in Provo. Honestly, I'm just upset that I'm going to have to wait until Dec to see a shortened version of this awesome event. The internet coverage sucks, but at least I would be able to see it, and kinda live it with the people. I remember in 2010 I was in my room, and didn't come out at all the whole event. It was so intense. And when Gee nailed that quarterpipe drop, and when Cam nailed the 360, I cheered out loud. I also enjoy listening to the talking, and hearing about how Gee built his own line into the quarter, and all that pointless talking, and I wont be able to live it this year because its going to be on TV in December. I'm sure the TV version will be sick, but it will be shortened, and I'll already know the results by then. it just won't be as exciting.

    I've been prepping all year for this event, and to know I have to wait an extra long while to see it, not live... I guess I'm just really disappointed...

    it is this simple...find out who is going from SLC/Provo area and hook up a ride down...I have hooked up with many people on this forum in that area and rode some trails and Resorts (Brian Head and Deer Valley) in that area...

    Regarding the geoblocking, has anyone ever tried using a free proxy server? I've used them in the past to get around barriers with great results. Super easy to do. Just go to a server list site, select a location, and type in the address of the live event. Red Bull and NBC might know about this and have a way to stop it, but it might still work fine.

    Moosey, if you're really wanting to be there in person, it should be pretty easy to find people in the Provo area that are going down there. There are a lot of really good riders south of the 'point' that surely will be going. I'd toss a post in the Utah forum and see what comes up. If you offer some dollars to help with gas money, it will make it all the easier. I'd offer you a ride myself, but I'll most likely be in Moab that weekend. Btw, are you going to the Y? And you're from Fallon, right? I'm from Gardnerville, not too far away, but I have lived in SLC for the past 10 years or so after going on a mission. I used to race MX in Fallon all the time. Good memories of that place

    TMS- yea, the Canfield crew will be there and we're planning a bunch of riding/huckin. I'm planing on being there for the entire event. The first day is usually a bust for watching but day two practice, it'll be on. Evening rides daily and yes, we will be getting our swerve on. Call us or look for the Canfield van.

    Where is this camping spot? Thats all private land east of the bridge AFAIK all the way to Mesquito Cove and that camping area is closed.

    I'd suggest the area east of the old RB site as the best camping area. Please respect private property and make sure you are on public (BLM) land when camping. I know some land owners who are tired of cleaning up after folks and will be evicting those who tresspass. PM me for some suggestions if you like.

    bud, you don't even know.. i'm in canada and we get WAY more stuff blocked than a single event. there are still parts of the internet i can't access because apparently only americans can watch videos. suck it up.

    As I mentioned in my previous post.....The area you’re describing is indeed Mosquito Cove and it is permanently closed. Don't go there you will be ticketed by BLM rangers. It's signed closed, fenced and gated. After the flood of Dec 2010 came through and scoured it clean the BLM closed the area. There was a chronic problem with human waste, trash and some other issues such as people setting up long-term residence there as well as some crime related issues as well.

    There are no river access public camping areas that I am aware of on the Virgin River. Used to be camping at the lower JEM trail head area but that's private land (as is the first mile+ of the JEM trail) and the land owner (as well as the residents nearby) finally got tired of the pickig up the trash, broken bottles, dealing with loud music at all hours (there are homes very close by), bonfires during fire bans and general bad behavior of some campers and have started enforcing their property rights. It's unfortunate but that's the way it goes when certain percentage of people act like tools and lack repect for the property of others.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. In my opinion your best bet is the "donation" camping area accross from the old RB site on the KT road. There is shade, a creek and it's close to the RB site as well and it's pretty nice.

    There's some really nice photos on VitalMTB:

    Big Mountain with some slopestyle near the bottom looks pretty awesome. I think the next, I'll have to seriously think about driving out in '14. Would be amazing to see in person.

    It's a pretty good walk out there. There is a road that goes the whole way so walking it (I'm assuming they won't let you drive it) shouldn't be too much problem but it is uphill and flat much of the time as I recall.

    Figured out I can use my tv as a monitor with an hdmi cable (never noticed it on the back of my tower) so even more psyched to watch it live on a larger monitor. And have sound as I've been using headphones....

    [email protected]! I was watching the RB Rampage, and just got the blue screen of death! I've never had any issues with this computer.

    Any computer gurus here? What would cause this???

    BSOD is most commonly caused by hardware malfunctions, but it can also have many other causes. What were you doing?

    Well, I got the BSOD again. I am now scared to watch the Rampage...

    I wasn't doing anything strange, just watching the Rampage. I had a couple other browser tabs open also (Firefox).

    Great event but Cam and Norbi definitely got robbed.. thought Cams first run deserved to put him in at least 2nd place.. I mean nobody else even attempted to hit that gap and he did it with style.

    It was a great event!
    I don't know what it looked like on the computer but live it was totally crazy. Every one of the lines were sick.
    I'm one of the lucky guys that live 45min away from there. Now time to go through all the videos I recorded and get some pics to post.
    I think that Cam may have been robbed because I don't think there were as many judges on the line he rode, he was the only rider to take that line and hit that gap. It was on the other side of the hill and every one had to move to see it.

    So are you saying that the judges didn't move to see his run.. That just isnt right.

    I probably shouldn't say that because I don't realy know if that was the case. Cam did have a great run but some of the other riders threw some big tricks and I think the judges were scoring higher for tricks this year.

    Do we have to wait 2 years for the next one..I hope not.. As fast as the riders have been progressing I don't see why they couldn't put one on every year..

    There did seem to be wide variances in scores between runs that were quite similar, but I'd hate to be a judge. They all deserve podium spots.

    just finished watching it.
    Agree the C-Mac and Norbi got robbed large. T-Mac as well, just not as bad.
    Kurt deserved the win - insane run with style for miles.

    Overall I thought the judging was all over the place - just did not seem consistent.

    Good camerawork, nice replays, only a couple of misses. Had no problem with the RedBull feed for once - ran clean, usually not the case.

    Now the only problem is waiting another 2 years for the next round...I need this yearly.

    Having been to 2008 2010 and now 2012

    here are my takes...

    the crowd seemed to be way bigger...I think the same size as 2008 and 2010 together

    I have seen the flips and all that and it is real cool....but the most impressive thing to me is when guys ran down the face of the mountain....you would think that would be impossible



    I like to see the slope style ramps done away with...again flips on the ramps are cool but man just let them figure it out with nature and not the ramps

    I thought this year was the best of 08, 10, and 12. 2010 kind of sucked in my opinion as far as being a spectator. I liked that they let fans go anywhere this year. Even though there were more people, it felt less crowded to me and less like I had to compete with people to see anything. This Rampage felt the most relaxed I thought I had much better access to see the runs. We were able to move around, so we got to see multiple aspects of the mountain. Also, taking my 7 year old son for the first time, I'm incredibly impressed with the riders as people. No one turned me down to get a picture, and Kyle Strait, Darren Berrecloth, and Cam McCaul were amazingly cool to him. I've spent a lot of time around professional athletes and have never seen any of them be more accommodating. I felt a little stupid interrupting them since they are working, but no one seemed even remotely annoyed. They seemed generally invested in making him feel important and worth their time. He is already figuring out how he wants to hang the pictures on his wall. I'm very impressed.

    There are some solid arguments to be made for others placing higher. You can get one take on it here: spokenaboutbicycles.com
