Ethan Nell prequalified for Red Bull 2018 Rampage

Red Bull Rampage returns to the Utah desert on October 26th.

21 of the world’s greatest freeriders will transform the unforgiving terrain of southern Utah into descending lines of form and function, with the goal of displaying the kind of riding that will place them at the top of the podium at one of the most arduous tests of fortitude on two wheels.

Red Bull Rampage veterans Kurt Sorge and Cam Zink top the list of returning riders this year after taking home gold and silver, respectively, in 2017. EXTREME’s Ethan Nell, the hometown hero who took home third in 2017 plans to continue to show his growing skills on the the mountains outside of Virgin, UT. The question everyone wants answered is whether the tenure of athletes like Sorge, Zink and Semenuk can keep pace the new era of rippers, especially those with year-round exposure to the riding conditions of the arid Southwest and the totally new location for 2018.
