The crash that everyone fears in Red Bull Rampage, falling off a cliff, happened yesterday to Nicholi Rogatkin. In a fall that could have easily killed or paralyzed someone, Rogatkin got up shaken but undeterred. He got checked out and finished off his run in perhaps the most unlikely feat in Redbull history.
