Rampage on FOX

This morning while getting ready for work we were watching Fox news. Just as I was ready to leave they mentioned dirtbikes so I watched a bit longer. They showed clips from the Red Bull Rampage in Utah. At firts I thought it was cool that they were showing mtb's on the news let alone freeriding.
Well I was disapointed. All they showed were 4 or 5 riders doing a massive drop and going down hard. It made us look like unskilled riders with no brains. It is bad enough we do not get much air time ( no pun intended) but they could at least show some of the riders that actually landed the drop. If anyone else sees the clips I am speaking of and wants to let FOX know that it is bad press for our sport here is there E-mail :
