Red Bull Rampage releases it's Selection List for 2017

August 14, 2017 / Athlete News

KYLE STRAIT and CARSON STORCH MAKE RAMPAGE SELECTION 2017

The red rocks of Virgin, Utah, United States, host the biggest test of guts, skill, and creativity in mountain biking. Elite riders from freestyle, freeride, and downhill throw down their best tricks, gnarliest drops, and toughest lines.  Kenda would like to Congratulate Kyle Strait and Carson Storch for making the selection for Red Bull Rampage 2017, and wish them success at the toughest slopestyle event in the world. 

There is no better authority on Red Bull Rampage than Kyle Strait. As the only rider to compete in all nine events, Strait is also the only athlete to win the premier big mountain contest twice.  Kyle has been riding and winning on Kenda Honey Badger DH tires for over four years.  This year Kyle will be on the new Hellkat, and with him behind the handlebars look for the both of them to leave their mark on Rampage.

Carson "the kid" Storch is one of the most talented young riders we know, and winner of "Best Trick" last year at Rampage.  He has been shredding on Kenda Nexcavators for the past four years and we love watching him at work.  Don't blink an eye at Rampage this year or you might miss something jaw dropping when he makes his run.

Kenda can't wait to not only watch the awe-inspiring runs with looks of sheer terror on our faces, but also be a part of the journey that gets these stand-up athletes to the top of those cliffs...
