Video: Cameron Zink wins Red Bull Rampage

Gee Atherton second in jaw-dropping freeride comp

American rider Cameron Zink won the Red Bull Rampage freeride competition in Virgin, Utah yesterday ahead of Gee Atherton and Darren Berrecloth.

In a contest filled with massive crashes, jaw-dropping runs and changeable weather, the world’s top gravity stars produced some spectacular riding.

Zink pulled off one of the biggest moves in freeride history to top the podium, win the best trick award and take the overall win in the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour (FMB).

He went for an impossible-looking 360 off Oakley’s Icon Sender ramp in his first run, but went sideways and hit the deck. In his second run he went for the same move and pulled it off majestically. Spanish rider Andreu Lacondeguy summed up Zink’s trick, saying: “That was the wildest thing I've ever seen!”

“Being the Red Bull Rampage champion is a dream,” Zink said after the event. "I won Crankworx twice and that’s something on its own, but this is one of the first real mountain biking contests ever. To win it is the most amazing thing in the world. In all honesty, I’d rather win Red Bull Rampage than any other event.”
