Here's the Red Bull Straight Rhythm video you were waiting for. A clean, unadulterated clip of two riders attacking the half-mile-long track in its entirety, via helicopter. Yes, helicopter. Cue Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries."

Red Bull Straight Rhythm is an innovative evolution of supercross where a track is "unwound" - there are no turns, just a half-mile-long straight rhythm section.

By isolating the whoops, triples, doubles, table tops and step on/offs, riders must focus exclusively on reading the terrain directly in front of them, correctly judging their speed for precise distance and control

To sweeten the pot, we have Ryan Dungey on a KTM 450 SX-F and Marvin Musquin on a KTM 350 SX-F battling on the unwound supercross course.

This wasn't supposed to be a race.

This was supposed to be a friendly exhibition run by two professional racers on a prototype track.

It turns out, though, the key word in the last sentence is "racers."
