If we have a JS7 v CR22 shootout on 2 strokes I will lose my mind....

What about TP199 or RC4?

I would think that RC4 would LOVE to show up on his RM250 with some big Monster claws on the side!

What I don't understand here is whether or not Kenny is racing...

He said no to MEC, but this is only a week later. Is he racing? Sounds like he is going to show up on MCs 1996 CR250? No?

This would be amazing and would take the event to the next level!!!

Huge KR94 fan, I think he is exactly the shot in the arm this sport needs. Make moto fun again Ken!

RBSR is an exhibition race/spectacle. His results would not matter, just like for everyone else that participates. I would actually not be that surprised to see him line up.

I get that, but it's still lining up on hard ass dirt, jumping technical rhythms and hammering whoops in a head to head race. Plenty of potential to get tore up. Just ask RJ...

Red Bull PR:

"It’s official! The sounds and smells of the ‘90s are back with the Ken Roczen Two-Stroke Shootout at Red Bull Straight Rhythm. This eight-man bracketed competition will be exclusively for bikes with two-stroke engines, and will be hosted by Ken Roczen (who unfortunately won’t race as he is still recuperating). The two-stroke competitors will race head-to-head on October 21 on a half-mile rhythm track with no turns at Fairplex in Pomona, CA. In addition to this popular “two-smokers” class, the event will once again contain a Lites Class (250cc and below) and an Open Class (greater that 250cc).

Stay tuned for official rider announcements in the near future (you maybe have gotten some hints already)."

This is going to be gold.

I mean awesome, but does anyone else think it's weird that it's hosted by Roczen? A rider who rides for the company who is the most adamant of any manufacturer that they will never make another two-stroke bike?

|

9/26/2017 11:52 AM

Has anyone heard from JS7 in the last few months? Fell down a hole or something.

TP199 already ran the Suzonda 5002t without being in a separate class.

Sorry to be a spoilsport.

What's to stop him from riding one of the many rm250's he has?

|

9/26/2017 12:14 PM

Sure he can. I'm just saying it's not a totally new idea. It's been done.

Gotta love KR94.

My only question: Can riders race more than 1 class?

|

9/26/2017 12:52 PM

Smart move by Red Bull. I'm actually looking forward to this more than the MEC this year.

|

9/26/2017 1:08 PM

God bless Red Bull and Ken Roczen.

He's not racing, I think that's for the better

It is kind of weird that he's the "host," I would have thought of TP to come back, host it AND ride as he's such a great catch

I'm guessing Kenny will be in the booth at some point which will be awesome, adds to the things to look forward to this year with straight rhythm

Edit: Was he really just the first dude to literally call out JS7 on insta? (good stuff, Jeremy Malott)

Red Bull must be funding the majority of his contract as I can't see Honda being too enthused about their top riders two stroke antics. However I, like others here, think it is A OK.

Just cause the big guy at Honda said it a time or two dosent mean everyone agreed with him then or now

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.

I remember TP and Ronnie showing up. However, I can't recall seeing TP, CR, RC, JS, RV, AC, etc running head to head in a 2 stroke only class just for fun. Not even saying the majority of them are showing, but it is fun to think about the new addition

Its not personal and only a business decision by Honda to no longer produce 2 strokes. Glad KR is racing, but I'm sure he would have no problem running what Honda refers to as outdated technology in a fun event.

And what a great business decision that turned out to be ...
