Gate drop for Ryan Dungey and Marvin Musquin
Gate drop for Ryan Dungey and Marvin Musquin We even fashioned a dog house for the start. It meshed well with the rustic setting of the SoCal mountains. Marvin Musquin and Ryan Dungey go for the holeshot, even though there technically isn't a first turn. © Garth Milan/Red Bull Content Pool
Jessy Nelson throws a whip out in the mountains

It was a much appreciated departure from the dust and desert that houses most of the tracks in Southern California. Jessy Nelson shows his appreciation. © Garth Milan/Red Bull Content Pool

The brothers Stewart split the camera
The brothers Stewart split the camera The head-to-head racing was pretty epic. There is no block passing or defensive riding at Straight Rhythm. Just the riders and the track. It was all about how fast you can run it. Pictured are James and Malcolm Stewart battling it out for their parents' affection (not really, of course). © Garth Milan/Red Bull Content Pool
The Whoops
The Whoops You've heard of the Whoop Monster. Straight Rhythm had one, too. But our Whoop Monster is actually a monstrous set of whoops. The riders said it was one of the gnarliest they've ever seen, which is no surprise since the whole section didn't even fit in this photo. © Garth Milan/Red Bull Content Pool
Ryan Dungey and Marvin Musquin live the scrub life
Ryan Dungey and Marvin Musquin live the scrub life With no turns on the track, large and steep jump faces were built to slow riders down and extend the race times. The result, of course, was a series of ridiculous scrubs as riders began to gel better with the track. © Garth Milan/Red Bull Content Pool
The Stewart Bros. are kind of good at scrubs, too

Jessy Nelson wins best the scrub of the day

A Ryan Dungey turndown? Straight Rhythm has it all
A Ryan Dungey turndown? Straight Rhythm has it all You know it's a special event when Ryan Dungey is throwing turndowns. And yes, that's his takeoff in the photo. He cracked this one past 90 degrees, like a champ. © Garth Milan/Red Bull Content Pool
