It’s time to go on a rampage! We’re following up Wednesday’s Life in 360° video where we took in some sweet dunks at a basketball competition in Venice Beach, California with something just a little bit spicier.
We’re sticking with America, but this time we’re off to Virgin in Utah and some much rockier terrain than some Californian asphalt. Once again, we have a video from those crazy folks at Red Bull, and we’re going mountain biking to the extreme in The Red Bull Rampage.
If you’re not familiar with the Rampage, it’s an annual competition where bikers showcase great feats of strength and skill and depending upon your point of view utter bravery or total stupidity. Freestyle, freeride, and downhill professional riders all show off their tricks and their skills to find out who is the best as they traverse the sort of rough course that makes you wonder how half them aren’t dead. ‘Rough terrain’ doesn’t even begin to cover things. Let me put it another way: I hope you’re not afraid of heights!
The 2017 Red Bull Rampage which is being shown here was the twelfth such event and brought with it the usual array of crazy moves, perilous drops and steep descents as riders battled to be crowned champion. Our video comes from the helmet cam of Darren Berrecloth (as well as a few other wisely placed cameras). Berrecloth is known by his nickname of “The Claw” and he certainly made his mark in the competition with this run. You can check out the video below.
The red rocks of Virgin are expected to once again rumble to the sound of rapidly descending bikers later this year. Sometime between September at October. VRFocus will return to Life in 360° next week for three more examples of 360 degree video. We’ll see you at the usual times.
