Red Bull Rampage 2010 About to Go Down, Crazy Oakley Icon Sender Built

It’s that time of year again, when a non-descript location in the Virgin Utah desert plays host to the world’s best freeriders, down hillers, and dirt jumpers.

Yes it’s time for the 2010 Red Bull Rampage, which will begin tomorrow October 1st and finish on Sunday the 3rd.

There has been a lot of talk already this year on the nature of the 2010 course. Known primarily for being a natural big mountain freeride event, the addition of more and more man made stunts is a hot topic for debate.

While many athletes may be drawn more to the natural elements Virgin has to offer, the addition of the wooden stunts will no doubt offer more variety to the lines available on the course.

Last Rampage’s 60 foot canyon gap with a wooden take-off was not hit by many, but the few who did left a lot of spectators talking and it provided for some pretty spectacular footage.

For this year’s rampage, Oakley stepped up to build the super secret Icon Sender: a huge booter with the possibility of over 30 foot out and over 30 foot down. The construction of the stunt is uniquely Oakley, and promises some mayhem for sure.

Check out the scale of the insane stunt after the jump!

The Icon Sender is HUGE!

I can’t quite calculate how many Red Bull and vodkas I’d need to launch off that thing… but it’s more than a few.

That thing is awesome. I need one for the woods in the back of my house.
