Carson Storch was guinea pig his big drop this morning and failed. He broke his collarbone in that fall and will not be able to compete tomorrow. Carson has been gorgeous on the bike all week and we’re sorry we couldn’t see him ride his incredible line. We wish him good luck in his recovery.
Cam Zink had his biggest fall two days ago several times in a row, and today he tried to backflip her. He missed the landing and had a huge crash. We were so happy to see him walk away from this one. He posted an update on his Instagram channel here saying he plans to step up from the top tomorrow, despite a bruised lung. We’re so relieved to see him walk away from this one.
This is Brage Vestavik’s first year at Rampage and he took inspiration from the early freeriders with a natural line and some massive jumps. Tonight he first attempted his vertical fall from 47 feet and was unsuccessful. We now have confirmation from Red Bull that they had to withdraw from the event. From what we could see, it looked like he had injured his shoulder after crashing during his massive fall. Darren Berrecloth posted a video of the crash here and Brett Tippie posted the video from a different angle here. We will update once we have more details and our thoughts are with the friendly Norwegian tonight.
