Red Bull Rampage is back. This Friday, the heaviest event in freeride will be broadcast worldwide, and we're along for the ride. Flying the YT MOB flag is Bienvenido Aguado Alba, set to bring his wild amplitude and extensive trick bag to the desert as he sets his sights on the podium. At the age of 36, he’s one of the oldest competitors at this year’s Rampage.
This year his dedication and progression has not gone unnoticed, from best trick at Swatch Nines to best run at Darkfest, building off his experience he will go into his second Rampage with high hopes.
“It feels amazing to be back at Rampage! I’ve been working hard since my first appearance in 2019. My line this year features big jumps, trickable features and of course, the infamous canyon gap, I’m excited!” - Bienvenido Aguado Alba, MOB + SPANK IND Freeride Athlete
As is the tradition with Rampage, brands and sponsors come together to celebrate their rider’s participation, in this case for YT Industries it’s in the form of a custom painted TUES, as-well as gear and helmet to match.
“The inspiration for this year's design comes from lucha libre wrestling, and fits pretty well with Rampage. Raw, brutal and also represents the fight each athlete goes through, both mental and physical. It's a huge honor to have the opportunity to make a small contribution to the most amazing freeride event, and I can’t wait to see Bienve in action later this week.” - Dennis Dastig, Senior Graphic Designer YT Industries
