The full field of the Red Bull Straight Rhythm this weekend will encompass 27 riders, split into three classes: the Two-stroke Shootout, the Lites Class (250cc and below) and the Open Class (greater that 250cc). Red Bull Straight Rhythm has become known as an event that breaks the Supercross/motocross mold, as it features head-to-head racing, no turns, and multiple classes not found anywhere else. Tickets are still available at www.redbull.com/straightrhythm and the event will air live on Red Bull TV.
Twenty-seven riders will compete in Qualifying with only eight from each class advancing to the Quarter Finals. Certain riders will perform double duty, racing multiple classes, including: Ronnie Mac (Lites Class, Two-Stroke Shootout) and Ryan Sipes (Lites Class, Two-Stroke Shootout). In addition, Ryan Villopoto and Chad Reed may compete in the Open Class (both are confirmed for
the Two Stroke Shootout). Competing riders include:
Riders: Marvin Musquin, Broc Tickle, Josh Hansen, Tyler Bowers, Thomas Ramette, Kyle Chisholm, Alex Ray, Colton Haaker, Ryan Villopoto* and Chad Reed*
*Villopoto and Reed will decide on event day if they will compete in Open Class.
