While flyfishing won’t make Red Bull’s radar for upcoming “extreme” showdowns anytime soon—unless your name’s Conway, perhaps—we thought we’d share this footage from the Rampage 2010 finals, which capped off this past weekend in Virgin, Utah. The course plummeted 1,500 vertical feet and featured a 63-foot canyon jump. Check out Cameron Zink’s winning spin off the sack-shrinking Oakley Icon Sender. “Twenty-one of mountain biking’s best riders threw down all they had while battling wild weather, but when the skies cleared it was Zink who took home the trifecta – the contest win, Utah Sports Commission Best Trick Award and the Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour season overall title.”
