Cam Zink is an elite athlete and icon in the world of freeride mountain biking who hails from the high desert of Reno, Nevada. From landing a 100-foot back flip in 2014 to being voted for Best Rampage Moment for a 360 off the Oakley Sender, he embodies the LifeProof brand by defying what’s possible on a mountain bike.
“Rampage is my favorite time of year, it never disappoints,” said Zink. “The 10th anniversary will be one of the best displays of mountain biking ever. I didn’t have enough time to finish my line last year, but this year it is shaping up even better.”
Zink landed a first place win at the 2010 Red Bull Rampage, third place finish in 2013 and brought home the Silver medal at the 2014 event after stunning the crowd with one of the largest 360 drops in the sport.
Broken bones. Torn ligaments. Ruptured organs. Cam Zink has sacrificed his body on the trails — but not in vain. Check out Zink’s DEFY Odds feature film here:

"As soon as you accept the possibility that you could crash you’re better off. It’s a fine line between realising, ‘am I stupid, or is this something that’s really possible?"
