Red Bull Rampage 2012, Live Tonight…

Red Bull Rampage 2012

Mountain Bike Slopestyle thrills from the USA

Red Bull Rampage keeps the creative, unrestricted ethos of freeride mountain biking alive, but within the contest circuit. Poised on a sandstone ridge in the brutal landscape near Virgin, Utah, riders are free to choose whatever line they dare between an established start gate and the finish line 1,500 vertical feet below. Exactly what happens between those two points will, once again, be nothing short of groundbreaking. Watch it LIVE on Red Bull TV.

Watch it LIVE! tonight from 9PM (UK time) here

Trans-Provence 2012 – Day #7 : Final Day!

…Sospel to Monte-Carlo!

By Amah-Rose Abrams on 2 October 2012 in Mountain Bike Marathon

Nicolas Lau is the overall winner of the Trans Provence and the drama of the race continued

Trans Provence came to a close on Sunday and the winner was Nicolas Lau. Over the trails, through the rain, thunder and lightning and to the beach at Monaco the last day of the Trans Provence was an eventful one.

One rider, Sven Martin, broke his arm and had to be airlifted to hospital and despite this his wife Anka Martin finished the day.

There were two severe storms, which saw riders and mountain staff dodging lightning and the trails becoming even more perilous. Following the second storm there was a three-bike pile up but thankfully no more serious injuries.

So the final top three for the men’s race was Nicolas Lau in first, Nicolas Vouilloz in second and last year’s winner Jérôme Clementz came in third.

The women’s race was won by Anne-Caroline Chausson with Anka Martin in second and Rosara Joseph in third.

So a dramatic week at the Trans Provence, what excitements will next years race hold?

Trans-Provence 2012 – Day #6…

…St-Sauveur-sur-Tinée to Sospel

Watch the latest update as Nicolas Lau extends his lead on Day 6 of the Trans Provence

But it wasn’t exactly easy going on the penultimate day of riding in the southeast of France. A substantial number of riders got lost among the huge number of trails between St-Dalmas-Valdeblore and Sospel and this threw up some surprising results.

Indeed, Jérôme Clementz was having a great day, taking third, first, and third in the first three stages of the day. But something went horribly wrong for the Frenchman on Stage 22 and the reigning champion ended up limping home in 19th place.

As you’d expect, the two Nicolases – Lau and Vouilloz – took major advantage of this. They both won two of the day’s four stages, sharing first place in the day’s opening stage, to stretch their overall lead over Clementz.

Lau is now 1min 38secs ahead of Vouilloz and 1min 51secs ahead of Clementz. But with a day of riding still to go, last year’s winner will be determined to mount a fightback.

In the women’s category, Nelson’s Anka Martin had a brilliant ride. The Scandinavian rider was able to claw back Rosara Joseph’s two-minute lead to put herself in second place behind Anne-Caroline Chausson.

It looks like it’ll go right down to the wire on Day 7 as the riders cycle from Sospel to Monte-Carlo. Come back to RedBull.com/bike for a full report.

It’s day 5 at the Trans Provence, the sun is shining and the riders are smiling

It’s day 5 at the Trans Provence and there is a new leader in the men’s category in Nicolas Lau.

For the last two days it has been a contest between last year’s winner Jérôme Clementz and Nicolas Vouilloz. Clementz reclaimed first place yesterday after trailing in second for two consecutive days.

The smiles are back on the faces of the riders and the sun is shining again as the race gets well underway.

In this update from the South of France we also get to meet the mechanics that work keep the bikes running for the Elite and amateur riders.
