Red Bull Straight Rhythm at Fairplex in Pomona
In its fifth year, riders will leave their cushy factory four-strokes at home and will run what they brung as they go head-to-head on the ½-mile-long straight rhythm track on nothing but two-smoke power. The event will continue the format started last year where practice, qualifying and racing will all take place on the same day, with the finals taking place at night under the lights.
After the two-stroke class was introduced at the event last year, nostalgia took full effect, and everyone cared about little else. While most of the action takes place on the track, it also gets pretty heated online, as riders like Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed and Ronnie Mac talk serious trash to each other before lining up to race. The race will consist of two classes - 250cc+, and 150cc & under. And, yes, it is all two strokes … well, with one exception, the mad scientists at Alta Motors as they will be allowed to run electric in the 250cc+ class. Think of it as a “return to the past, but keep an eye on the future” philosophy.
Despite the bike changes, the concept of this competition remains the same. Line up side by side and race head-to-head down a half mile of rollers, whoops, doubles, tables and all other kinds of rhythmic insanity. Racing is a best-of-three format, so each rider gets at least two chances to grab victory.
