Professional freerider Samantha Soriano is on a Road to Red Bull Formation—the women’s freeride mountain bike event taking place May 24 to June 1 on the 2015 Red Bull Rampage venue outside Virgin, Utah.
Join the 2018 U.S. Downhill National Champ as she travels to Southern Utah and prepares to ride among eight of the world’s best female freeride athletes aiming to conquer the most demanding mountain bike terrain on the planet.
In episode #1 of this 3-episode series, the 20-year-old Colorado native loads her 2021 Canyon Sender CFR and heads to the desert intent to knock the dust off her bag of tricks—with help, and comedic relief, from her lifelong riding partner and older brother, Ross Soriano.
