    I love your passion, and I too am a sucker for watching these magicians.

    However, I hope a Canadian isn't the first to die at one of these contests.

    I believe it was Cam Zink who did the flip on a 90 foot jump last year AND didn't win. This stuff is special, but I hate to see young athletes hurt and maimed. The Rampage is very close to Russian Roulette for a few bucks.

    Sam Reynolds, no slouch himself, said, "Some mistakes at Rampage could kill you, and that for me is where the risk is taken too far". I agree.

    sorry forgot to add the winky smiley face to show the humor...

    i guess we are going to have to put fences on the top of every hill to prevent people from hurtling themselves off on their bikes willy-nilly...

    after all we got to think about...

    Overall the event was pretty sweet. I ride a Knolly so my heart was with James Doerfling but his second run in qualies didn't get him through to the big show.
    Tom Van Steenbergen's front flip attempt was insane to say the least. He will stick it next near.

    Sending positive vibes to Paul Basagoitia who had the run to beat until he crashed hard shattering his T12. Long road ahead for him. It was a smart decision for Aggy and a few others to not take their final runs. Things are at a point where its just not worth the risk anymore. Rampage is going to facing some tough challenges down the road.
