As the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” And the retro-inspired, all two-stroke Red Bull Straight Rhythm ain’t broke. So, like a well-performing top end, it ain’t getting fixed. Head-to-head racing. Two-stokes only. No factory bikes. Serious racing…in an irreverent way. Something you definitely won’t see anywhere else.
The event returns for its sixth year, and the nitty-gritty remains the same. Line up side by side and race head-to-head down a ½ mile of rollers, whoops, doubles, tables and all other kinds of rhythmic insanity. Racing is a best-of-three format, allowing each rider at least two chances to grab victory. Practice, qualifying and racing will all take place on the same day, with the finals taking place at night under the lights.
