Last year was a great experience for VEE Tire Co. supporting their first sponsored rider Vincent Tupin aka Vinny T, to the maddest freeride competition in the planet, Redbull Rampage. Using VEE’s Flow Rumba tire, Vinny ended in 14th after his big drop off and backflip trick. Not bad for both VEE and Vinny both being newbies to the event, but most importantly Vinny finished an intense weekend without any mechanical problems including the tires.
This year VEE Tire Co. is lucky enough to get more invitations in Redbull Rampage 2018 so VEE’s new promo video is set to introduce their three riders as they prepare for this year’s Rampage.
Let’s start with Jordie Lunn, this bad boy is a pioneer of the freeride scene in North Shore of Canada and is well known for his massive drops. Competing in the various competitions from UCI World Cup DH and Crankworx since 2003, he combines classic freeride style with big gap jumps and massive backflips.
Once again, Vinny T got his 2nd invitation to compete in Redbull Rampage. He states his first ride in the 2017 Rampage was a learning process for better preparation this year. “We will have a new zone for 2018, so it will be exciting as every rider will think and create new line,” said the Frenchman.
VEE’s third rider is American rider, DJ Brandt. Practicing with both MTB and freestyle motocross, DJ hopes this will push the limits and help develop new tricks. “I came to Utah early, so I have more time to build some jumps and put in harder practices with both motocross and bike,” said Brandt.
These bold riders choose the strongest components to survive everything this Utah event will throw at them. Choosing VEE Tire Co.’s most aggressive tire the Flow Snap tire in Gravity Core casing. With Tackee Compound, the Flow Snap provides plenty of grip on the many terrains of Redbull Rampage.
