RedBull Ride+Style San Fransisco

I just received an e mail from our Japanese distributor who let me know about this event headed for Nor Cal next month. Look for "Osaka Funny" Takahiro Hizon to be throwin' Molly Hatchet's at the other competitors...

This will be a rad contest to see so if you're in the Bay Area... GO, Cheer, Party!!!

The event will be held on April 30th, 2011 in San Francisco, California in the iconic Justin Herman Plaza from 11am-4pm. We are inviting top riders from around the world to compete. The winner in each of the 2 categories will be awarded $1,000.

The two competition disciplines that make up Red Bull Ride + Style are:

Track race:
For the fastest fixed gear racers, a course will pit two racers at a time against each other, with an elimination-style race to determine the fastest fixed gear racer.

Freestyle:
For the freestyle riders, we will have a course of five unique obstacle features, and riders will be judged for their tricks and style by members of the fixed gear industry. In addition to the fixed gear element of the event, we will be working with San Francisco's top street artists to add elements and imagery to the course.
