Question for all of you! What do you do outside of biking to keep your adrenaline levels satisfied?

RedBullShredditors16 karma

Summer Mt. Biking is enough. In Winter, it's snowmobiling + Fire Ball. -Robbie Bourdon

How closely do you have to attend to your diet?

I've never heard of you guys before but it's nice to meet you now. Have a good one.

Each of you has sick style and flow- how difficult is it to get to that place in your mind where fear cannot penetrate? What tricks do you use to help keep your mind confident and focused, ready for your run? I race 20" bmx (still,again) and XC, an answer would really help me win in Inter/Sport class.

Also, sponsorships. We have some awesome kids racing- what would be a few sure fire was to get these little rippers seen?

Thanks so much for doing an AMA, you boys are heroes to me and my kids. Awesome.

What are your thoughts on the emergence of electric assist mountain bikes? (Drawing a distinction between electric pedal assist bikes and electric motor bikes)

RedBullShredditors29 karma

It's stupid. You might as well put 10 bikes in a pick-up truck and ride down. -Robbie Bourdon

What's the first thing that goes through your head when you finish a perfect run at rampage? Thanks, good luck!

RedBullShredditors17 karma

When I finish a perfect run, I'll let you know. -Robbie Bourdon

Doubrava164 karma

How do you get mentally prepared for an event as big as this one?

RedBullShredditors9 karma

Drinking and thinking. I'm now with the Germans and that means if I am not into drinking with them than I should not have accepted the contract with them. - Robbie Bourdon

Brady_Bunch_274 karma

Hey guys, i was wondering who you had your first sponsorship with and if you have any tips for someone who is trying to get sponsored?

Are you sometimes afraid of the track before a race ?

RedBullShredditors8 karma

mcleodmaniac3 karma

Hey guys, questions for all of you I guess.

Which video or segment was the most fun for you to be a part of? Similarly, who's the funnest rider you've ever shot with?

How do you feel about sharing lines at an event like Rampage? Do you feel that every rider should have to dig all of their own lines and features, or do you think that sharing should be accepted as part of the event?

Last one, what's your worst crash you've ever caught on film?

Thanks for doing this guys, good luck at Rampage!

RedBullShredditors3 karma

The Fest Series. -Kyle J., Jeff H., Makken H., Niko Zink

BridgeportBomber2 karma

How do I get tickets to the event?

lightningskuuuuuuull2 karma

What kind of support do you guys get from your sponsors during an event like Rampage? Say you blow up a critical bike component, are they going to make sure you get things working again in time for the event?

RedBullShredditors11 karma

What sponsors? -Robbie Bourdon

two_off1 karma

What are your favourite hills to ride?

Apart from the competition itself, which aspect of an event do you look forward to the most?
