Red Bull Ride + Style Event in SF


Red Bull Ride + Style Event in SF


Aaron at Red Bull hit me up the beginning of this month to chat about the forthcoming Red Bull Ride + Style in SF at the end of April. This event seems like it’s going to be proper, embracing the fast bike and the freestyle bike (hopefully some will be riding both!). Check out the official press-release:

The event will be held on April 30th, 2011 in San Francisco, California in the iconic Justin Herman Plaza from 11am-4pm. We are inviting top riders from around the world to compete. The winner in each of the 2 categories will be awarded $1,000.
The two competition disciplines that make up Red Bull Ride + Style are:

Track race:
For the fastest fixed gear racers, a course will pit two racers at a time against each other, with an elimination-style race to determine the fastest fixed gear racer.

For the freestyle riders, we will have a course of five unique obstacle features, and riders will be judged for their tricks and style by members of the fixed gear industry.
In addition to the fixed gear element of the event, we will be working with San Francisco’s top street artists to add elements and imagery to the course.
