Red Bull Rampage Qualifying - Holy No-hands Batman!

October 6, 2008
Red Bull Rampage: The Evolution will feature 26 of the world's best mountain bike riders, duking it out on some ridiculous big-mountain terrain to determine just who is the all-around best freerider.
The return of Red Bull Rampage is drawing close and the world's best riders are getting set to tackle a course that will be the ultimate test of their skills. With a $10,000 first place prize, these riders are set to give whatever it takes to be on top - blood, sweat and maybe even some tears. In addition, the Utah Sports Commission will present a $5,000 check for the best trick of the event.

This is one sick video.

Red Bull Rampage returns triumphantly after four years of silence. Although a rain delay kept many anxious, the mountain bike gods unleashed the glorious sun to scorch the barren Utah terrain.
More daredevil that athlete, Thomas Vanderham, stuck a no-hander over a 59-foot canyon gap and took home best trick. However, it was 17 year old Brandon Semenuk that took home the prize of 10,000 dollars and bragging rights.
