This week, as riders start to descend upon the Red Bull Rampage venue to scope their lines, center stage has been set with the completion of the Oakley Icon Sender. The crew of Canadian builders made up of Adam Billinghurst and brothers Dennis & Robbie Bourdon put the finishing touches on it this week.
To christen the build, Robbie strapped “Josh,” the monstrous handmade wooden skull, to his back and hauled him up the hill to be attached to the front of the Icon Sender. “Josh” now rests high upon his desert perch, quietly watching riders contemplate their lines, waiting for the day when their thoughts become actions.
