Red Bull Straight Rhythm returns in 2015 with a new location and a new track. Check out an animation that provides an in-depth look at what the world’s best riders – including James Stewart and Ryan Dungey – will face on October 10. The 1/2 mile straight track (with no turns) is built from 10,000 cubic yards of dirt and will challenge riders with 75 jumps, over 400 feet of whoops and extended rhythm sections with multiple line options. Twenty–four riders will compete, broken into two classes – 16 riders in the Open Class and 8 riders in the Lites Class (250cc or less). Full rider list to be announced shortly.
Differing from last year, riders will start from an elevated platform, and for 2015 the track will also feature more technical rhythm sections with multiple line options. Among the obstacles on the track are three speed checks (including a sand pit), two dragonback obstacles and a 10-foot high finish line jump. The extended whoops section will begin with rolling speed whoops, allowing riders to carry much more speed into the following stadium whoops. The final stretch includes a rhythm section with five tabletops, allowing each rider to create their own specific line on the path to crossing the finish line first.
