After a four-year dormancy, the Red Bull Rampage freeride mountain bike competition and the scene was ripe for the 2008 event. The world’s best freeriders were given a massive sandstone ridge in Virgin, Utah to work with; progression was mandatory for survival on the 1500-foot face. New Wave Cinema followed Canadian rider Mike Hopkins through his Rampage adventure and created an insightful mini-documentary complete with helicopter footage. Check it out here, it’s worth revisiting.

“I feel really good about the whole event and I feel that that is mountain biking at its best.” – Mike Hopkins
