From Red Bull USA:
RED BULL RIDE + STYLE RETURNS TO SAN FRANCISCO
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 San Francisco artists. In 2011, the event brought together more than 50 riders from both coasts, including riders from such fixed-gear meccas as San Francisco, Portland, New York and even Japan.
Last year’s top 10 finalists in both categories will be automatically invited back to this year’s event. While the remaining spots in freestyle are invite-only, the track competition will be open to all riders. A qualifying round on the Red Bull Mini Drome will be held on Thursday, April 26 at Mezzanine (444 Jessie St.) to see who makes it into the big show.
