Less than a year ago, Talus and I sat down on the Dead Sailor Podcast and talked about his dreams of attending Rampage. Only 11 months later, I found myself standing on a 60-foot drop that Talus was planning to flip in his Rampage run. Why am I not surprised... Talus' trajectory in freeride is mind-blowing. His ability to dial in his riding and check off goals is unlike anyone I've seen before. Most riders spend years trying to accomplish what Talus does in a matter of weeks. The amount of pride we have for our guy is impossible to put into words. From humble beginnings to the world's largest stage in just a few short years—wow. Just wow. Congratulations on your 5th place at your first-ever Rampage, Talus. It's an honor to have been able to witness it with our own eyes. We can't wait to see where you go in the not-so-distant future!
Here's a complete content dump of everything Rampage...
