Red Bull Rampage Rain Delay

News Race Coverage

The 2008 Red Bull Rampage qualifying is postponed due to stormy weather.



A huge storm rolled into Utah today, bringing lots of rain and pretty much making a mess of the Rampage site. Jake and I went to take a look, in spite of the rain. The only spectator we could find was this horny lizard and he was pissed that none of the competitors were hucking themselves off the cliffs. But based on the slimy goo we were walking through, riding would have been pretty risky. I wouldn’t even want to be walking on those cliffs for fear they’d collapse. In fact, qualifying was postponed because of the weather. Currently, qualifying is scheduled to start at 9 AM on Sunday morning. But that is weather-dependant and it’s possible that the event could be put off until Monday. For the latest news, check the official Red Rampage news site: www.redbullrampage.com/news/
