Red Bull Rampage is one of the toughest and most physical freeride mountain bike events on the planet.

The terrain takes no prisoners if riders make the slightest mistake or wrong approach out on the course.

We looked into our archives to find the roughest and hardest crashes from past events as we look forward to the 2012 event in October.

Past competitors Josh Bender, Lance Canfield, Wade Simmons, Garrett Buehler and Cam McCaul feature in the above clip of the top five major crashes from Red Bull Rampage over the years.

Make no mistake, Red Bull Rampage respects no reputation and can be brutal.

Red Bull Rampage take place from October 5-7 and you can watch it here it live from 9pm CET on October 7.
