Best Death-Defying Stunts From the Red Bull Rampage

The dust has settled on the Red Bull Rampage course, but the competition's just-released highlight reel is here to remind us why it's the most insane event in mountain biking.

The invite-only freeride competition gives elite riders and their crews of three builders a week to create their own trails, jumps, and lines down the ridiculously steep and narrow terrain outside Utah's Zion National Park. Riders are judged and scored on the difficulty of their routes as well as any tricks — flips, 360s — they can pull off.

After finishing fourth in the last three Rampages, Andreu Lacondeguy of Spain took the 2014 title thanks to a massive drop to start his run, followed by a huge back flip at the bottom of the course. American Cam Zink finished second overall, but was awarded Best Trick for his 360 off a giant vertical drop. You can see all these feats, and a few more spine-tingling stunts in the video above.
