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. 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 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. “It’s all about rhythm," says James Stewart, "so if you mess up once, you’ve got a half-mile to get it back, but you almost have to be perfect. One mistake and it’s a wrap.”
