2018 RED BULL STRAIGHT RHYTHM | BEST IN THE PITS

Gared Steinke TC125 2018 Red Bull Straight Rythem -7938The winner of the 2017 Red Bull Straight Rhythm, Gared Steinke gets to run the number 1 plate in 2018. 

Who can go fastest in a straight line on a Supercross track? That is what the Red Bull Straight Rhythm is all about. Except this year only two-strokes are allowed on the 1/4 track. The beautiful sound of 125cc and 250cc two-strokes are the only bikes allowed on the track. That is no entirely true as Darryn Durham is riding the super silent Alta this year. Here is what what saw before the riding got started in the pits at the Fairplex in Pomona.
