Red Bull Road Rage: Bicycle crash

Oof.

[picappgallerysingle id=”8958199″]

The caption provided with the photo says, “A rider crashes into a security wall during the Red Bull Road Rage bike downhill race in Sigulda, Latvia May 30, 2010.” I think it involves putting mountain bikers and road cyclists together and see who can make it to the bottom of a hill the fastest, but I’m not sure.

    “I think it involves putting mountain bikers and road cyclists together and see who can make it to the bottom of a hill the fastest, but I’m not sure.”
    You are correct in the above. First there is a ITT qualifying run and then the top 32 riders go down 4cross style, with the fastest two advancing to the next round. Riders have the choice of 26″ or 28″ wheels.
    For more details and event race dairies please feel free to visit my blog: http://janoskohler.wordpress.com/ (Account of the above pictured Latvian Red Bull Road Rage is also present).
    Great blog by the way! :-)
