RED BULL RIDE + STYLE RETURNS TO SF

We are stoked to be a part of the Red Bull RiDE + style for 2012. I’m sure you’ve seen the official press release at various sites online but if you haven’t, check it out below. This year is going to be even crazier then last year’s event. Be sure to save the date.

“Event to Once Again Combine Fixed Gear Biking and Urban Contemporary Art

San Francisco, CA (February 8, 2012) — On April 28, San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza will
once again serve as the setting for the collision of fixed gear biking and urban contemporary art
known as Red Bull Ride + Style. After a highly successful inaugural kickoff in 2011, the event
returns even bigger and better for 2012.

Red Bull Ride + Style features fixed gear riders facing off in both track and freestyle
competitions, with the obstacles designed and decorated by local San Francisco artists. In 2011
the event brought together more than 50 riders from both coasts, including riders from fixed gear
meccas San Francisco, Portland, New York, and even Japan.

The 2011 top ten finalists in both categories will be automatically invited back to this year’s
event. While the remaining spots in freestyle will be invite-only, the race portion of the event
will consist of a qualifying round the night before the main event. This will serve as an open
invitation to all hopefuls to lay down their best time in order to qualify for the big show in Justin
Herman Plaza on April 28.

This year’s racetrack is being designed with input from selected participants from the 2011 Red
Bull Ride + Style event. Details will be released on the new track and freestyle course prior to
the event, so riders can prepare themselves properly for the demands of event day. Another
update with the full list of invited freestyle athletes and more information about the event will be
released shortly.
