World’s Best Mountain Bikers Ready to Take on Legendary Freeride Event In Utah’s Remote Desert Landscape

Santa Monica, CA – August 30, 2012 – The riders are set, the course is being constructed and tickets will soon be available to witness the pinnacle of freeride mountain biking as Red Bull Rampage gets set to take stage in Virgin, Utah. After a thrilling contest at Red Bull Joyride, the final list of riders has been selected to participate, and on September 1st a lucky 1,800 spectators will get the opportunity to stamp their ticket to witness in person the throwdown in picturesque desert of Utah taking place October 5-7, 2012.

There will be a deep list of riders hailing from 10 nations, from veterans who have rode every Red Bull Rampage like Mike Kinrade and Kyle Strait, to new phenoms like Anthony Messere who at 16 will be the youngest rider in the field, and heavy hitters like Brandom Semenuk who at the ripe old age of 21 already has a Red Bull Rampage title under his belt. Three riders are coming to Red Bull Rampage with an additional goal in mind – to be crowned FMB World Tour Champion 2012. Semenuk, Martin Soderstrom and Thomas Genon all have the chance to take home the title at this year’s final event of the FMB World Tour in Utah – but with Semenuk’s points advantage if he stands anywhere on the podium he will be crowned champion. Soderstrom and Genon need to bring their best game to Utah desert if they want to defeat the defending champion.
