World’s Premier Freeride Mountain Biking Competition will be Available on ESPN/ESPN+
VIRGIN, UT (August 3, 2023) — The world’s gnarliest big-mountain freeride mountain bike competition, Red Bull Rampage, announces its return to southwest Utah. On Friday, October 13th, the top 18 mountain bike athletes will descend upon some of the most difficult terrain in the world to compete for the title of baddest freerider in the scene.
ESPN+ returns to exclusively stream the event in the U.S., and the competition will be available live on Red Bull TV in all other countries. Following the live show, the complete event will be available on-demand on both ESPN+ and Red Bull TV. On October 22, viewers can also tune-in to a 90-minute highlight on ESPN.
For fans looking to attend the event in-person, tickets will go on-sale via the Red Bull Rampage website with an announcement to come, so check the site for further updates and the official on-sale date in the coming weeks.
The inaugural Red Bull Rampage was held in 2001, and last year we celebrated 21 years of Red Bull Rampage. Since then, 16 different events and 10 different winners have earmarked their place in the history books. This year, viewers can expect an enhanced broadcast experience with upleveled technology and new voices sharing their perspective on the sport.
The competition format will remain the same, with an elite group of riders carving their ultimate lines into the side of near-vertical sandstone ridges with the help of their two-person build crews. In advance of the competition, riders and their support crew will spend four days building their lines, followed by a rest day, and then four practice days. All of the preparation will end in an epic showdown in the desert, where only one will ride away as champion of the 2023 Red Bull Rampage.
