2017 RED BULL STRAIGHT RHYTHM | COMPLETE COVERAGE

PHOTOS | Emery

The qualifying runs for the 2017 Red Bull Straight Rhythm have just wrapped up, as riders from the three classes clocked their quickest runs down the half-mile course to determine who they will face off against in the head-to-head battles. There are a number of big jump combinations that riders can master for a fast time, but there’s plenty of risk in attempting to attain the reward and that’s evident in the injuries that have hit the roster. As a result of practice mistakes Chad Reed, Jon Ames, and Jordon Smith will all be on the sidelines this evening during the race.

Have a look at the practice times below and tune in at 8:30 PM EST/5:30 PM PST to watch the free live stream from Red Bull on our site!
