Carnage and Chaos - Red Bull Foxhunt 2018
The Red Bull Foxhunt concept is pretty simple - take a few hundred riders, set them off down a hill with a mass start, and the first person to cross the finish line wins. To add a little spice to the mix, a few select foxes in the form of World Cup DH and EWS racers are also part of the hunt, but letting these riders start from the front would make it far too easy for them and less chaos-inducing for us spectators, so they go from the back instead. Can any of the pros win this year? Check out Gee Atherton's and Rachel Atherton's Foxhunts below to find out!
Gee headed out to Northern Ireland for his last race of the season. He took to the hill with fellow Red Bull racers, Greg Callaghan and Loic Bruni. The aim of the game...overtake as many of the 550 riders as he can.
Rachel welcomed 200 female mountain-bikers to her hometown for the 5th Red Bull Foxhunt – an “upside down” mass start race where six times World Champion Rachel “ The fox” chases down the “hunters “ in two days of awesome riding on the hills of Machynlleth.
