Santa Monica, Calif. (October 19, 2017) – The full rider list has been unveiled for the upcoming Red Bull Straight Rhythm, taking place at Fairplex in Pomona on October 21.

The full field 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 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:

Open Class
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.

Lites Class
Shane McElrath, Jordon Smith, Sean Cantrell, Alex Martin, Enzo Lopes, Josh Hill, Justin Hoeft, Ryan Sipes, Ronnie Mac, Colton Aeck, Chase Marquier

Two-stroke Shootout
Ryan Villopoto, Ronnie Mac, Chad Reed, Mike Brown, Gared Steinke, Ryan Sipes, Jon Ames, Ryan Morais, Mike Sleeter

An evolution of the sport of Supercross, Red Bull Straight Rhythm features head-to-head racing on a 1⁄2 mile rhythm track with no turns. Red Bull Straight Rhythm debuted in 2014 at the Auto Club Raceway at Fairplex in Pomona, and saw James Stewart win in the Open Class, with Marvin Musquin taking home the top spot in the Lites Class. In 2015, James Stewart defended his title, once again landing on the top of the podium in the Open Class, with his brother Malcolm taking first place in the Lites Class. Last year, Marvin Musquin returned to the event and dominated the Open Class, with Shane McElrath taking the win in the Lites Class. Straight Rhythm takes place as part of the Red Bull Signature Series, a collection of the most progressive and innovative events in action sports.

Each single-day ticket gives access to practice, qualifying and the finals. With over 10,000 grandstand seats, plus an infield, spectators will be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience while watching an all-out sprint to the finish line. For those that need a break from the action, spectators will also have access to the race pits, numerous concessions and side acts throughout the day, offering something for the whole family. Tickets can be purchased at redbull.com/straightrhythm.

So does the * about RV2 and CR22 deciding to race Open class or not pretty much mean whether or not Chad decides what color bike he’s riding for SX by Saturday?? If so, perhaps he makes his debut on the new bike???

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

I have my money on Ronnie Mac after listening to his Pulp interview.

That's RBSR's bad for advertising the 259. Correct me if I'm wrong, but JS7 hasn't made a single peep about attending this event.

It sucks, but can't put any blame on him. Someone mentioned his dad mentioned he's just being a father and golfing right now, and I believe it.

Hanny is my dark horse. I think he can compete with the fastest supercross riders for 15 seconds, anything beyond that good luck.

I don't crash, I just run out of talent

Looks like another good payday for Rainin' Money Marv!

Is Hill going to be riding the Sybian?

10/19/2017 4:39 PM

Really... Ronnie Mac? That was funny at first, but it's gotten a little old at this point. A little too try hard IMO

According to Ronnie Mac it's a battery powered vibrator lol.

And yes he'll be riding the Alta.

I'm thinking McElrath runs away with it, and Smith comes in second.

Does anyone think RV2 would have a chance against Marvin? My brain tells me I'm an idiot and no chance, but my heart says that RV2 would hate to lose so much that he's been training hard and will be fast

Braaaaaaaap!!

Im picking Smith for the 250s after his MEC performance and obviously Marvin for the 450s. But like it was said above, a motivated RV could be interesting and Hanny can still throw it down for a minute or 2.

If Cooper Webb and RV raced straight rhythm, who would run the #2? Both?

Braaaaaaaap!!

Nice of you to crawl out from under your rock. Ronnie Macs marketing of the 2 stroke race has been discussed for a month.

Matthes: How do you feel?

Matthes: So you've been training?
RV: Nah.
