After a highly
successful proof-of-concept late
last year, Red Bull
will return on
October 4th as a full competition at Auto Club Raceway at Southern California’s
Pomona Fairplex. An evolution of the sport of Supercross, the event will feature
an “unwound” track, where there are no turns, just a 1/2-mile-long straight
rhythm section. Tickets will be available for purchase starting in July at
The innovative format will pit a field of 32 riders against each other in a
head-to-head best-of-three bracket format. By isolating just the whoops,
triples, doubles, tabletops and step-on/-offs, riders must focus exclusively on
reading the terrain directly in front of them and correctly judge their speed for
precise distance and control. Full rider list to follow, but some of the world’s top
Supercross/motocross riders are expected to compete. The 2013 proof-of-concept featured riders like James Stewart, Ryan Dungey, Marvin Musquin,
Malcolm Stewart, Cole Seely, Justin Bogle and Jessy Nelson riding the unique
course in a non-competitive format.
Red Bull Straight Rhythm will air on NBC in 2014 as part of the Red Bull
Signature Series, the most progressive action sports property in the world.
