    Red Bull Rampage: The Course is Taking Shape


    The 2010 edition of Red Bull Rampage is fast approaching, and the builders have made their way onto the course equipped with shovels and ramps. Here are a few photos and some words from head builder Paddy Kaye!

    By Paddy Kaye

    It's September 6th and the build crew has begun the magic at the Red Bull Rampage site. Jeremy (Witek), Randy (Spangler) and I started laying out the project in 100-plus degree heat a few days ago and thankfully it's dropped into the low 90s now.






    Another build crew member, Adam, just showed up so now we're ready to give’r. We've figured out the wooden ramps and have begun to shape the landings and lines that link the features together.






    Alan Lee, the land owner, has to be one of the coolest boys out there! He's plumbed in some water near the site and given us the freedom to create the 'superbowl' of mountain bike events.




    The machines have been breaking - standard stuff like blowing a hose on the mini and dropping the tracks on the skiddy, fun times. Our commute to work has been awesome! Pinning it in Tomcars and getting the 4-mile desert rally done in under 10 minutes. We'll need to set up a photoshoot one of these days when we have more time, should get some banger shots.


    More reports to come, time to go shaping!

    Cheers,
    Paddy Kaye

    Wow, I would hate to be the guinea pig for that gap.

    Props to whoever gets stuck with that job!
