No event compares to Red Bull Rampage.  If I tried to describe how insane it was, I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.  What I was able to do was talk to 12 riders, and some legends to get the inside scoop on the venue, the athletes and the history of an event everyone must see in person at least once.

Ryan Runke has an insane resume but his path to becoming a successful sports agent is as far from traditional as it gets.  Runke looks different, acts different, and has done things his way for a long time and it seems to be working.  On the podcast we talk his team sports days, transitioning to a dirtbag team manager and who morphed into a professional agent to the actin sports stars.  They don’t make many like Runke...
