VIRGIN, Utah (ABC4) — Utah audiences are in for a thrill this weekend as Red Bull Rampage is returning to the Beehive State for its 22nd year, featuring some of the best mountain bikers from across the globe.

Red Bull Rampage will kick off in Virgin, Utah, on October 13.

First held in 2001, Rampage has become known as a premier big-mountain freeride competition, bringing together 18 of the world’s top riders to demonstrate their “biggest and baddest tricks” for crowds of eager fans.

This year, the event will be returning to the southern Utah venue where it was hosted in 2008-2013 and 2022. While set amongst a beautiful red rock backdrop, the rugged desert landscape will certainly be a hearty challenge for competitors hoping to claim a top spot.

“What separates Red Bull Rampage from any other mountain biking competition is the incredible location and unbelievable terrain near Virgin, Utah, and Zion National Park,” said Utah Sports Commission President & CEO Jeff Robbins. “Riders push the limits of what’s possible competing in what arguably is the most epic mountain biking event taking place anywhere in the world.”

According to the Utah Sports Commission, the economic impact of the event is approximately $3.6 to $4.4 million.

For those without tickets, Red Bull Rampage will be streamed exclusively on ESPN+ and available on demand via Red Bull TV and ESPN+ immediately following the competition.
