get hyped: redbull ride+style

(via pdxfixed)
all the homies have been talking about an event in san francisco being put on by redbull, and up until now i havent heard or seen anything about it. to my knowledge its kind of an invitational. here's what i got from pdxfixed:
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:
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.
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.

i'm definitely going, and i'm going to try my hardest to find out some more information on what will go down. the west coast has been aching for a really big event like this, so as a native of the bay area and as a fixed enthusiast, i find the setting cant be more right- i'm fucking psyched.
