For a few years now, our creative team has been producing Stutter Movies to accompany most events and projects that we attend. We enjoy sharing a behind the scenes perspective with viewers in the form of these Stutter Movies. They create a unique opportunity to share a true sense of atmosphere, time, and place through still photography and short edits. Many passionate hands go into the planning and execution of every event, whether it’s at World Cup races, the MegAvalanche, video shoots, product testing, or RedBull Rampage. We appreciate the hard work applied by everyone involved and see these Stutter Movies as a small thanks to them all.
This year at RedBull Rampage we saw a new venue that was steeper and bigger than ever. Once again we were in complete awe of the effort put forth by the athletes, their diggers, and the organizers who make Rampage happen. The quality of line selection and building is one aspect of Rampage we’ve noticed being refined repeatedly. Simply put, there is no other event in the world the requires an athlete to apply so much creativity, back-breaking work, and unbelievable commitment to compete. And it’s all within a two week period dubbed, RedBull Rampage.
For SR SUNTOUR, it’s an opportunity to showcase the quality, reliability, and durability of our products at the highest level. That pedigree has been proven with podium appearances by Carson Storch and multiple wins by Kurt Sorge in recent years. Both of these athletes built incredible podium worthy lines again in 2018, and we look forward to returning to the same venue in 2019 to see what they can accomplish. Of course it’s also an opportunity to cook bacon in the pits!
