Ertzberg 2015 Redbull Hare Scramble
« on: June 09, 2015, 04:55:57 pm »
Cant believe no one has posted this yet. Here is the executive overview (with spoilers)
http://www.redbull.com/en/motorsports/offroad/events/1331694918961/red-bull-hare-scramble-2015

and now here is what you really want  :biggrin:
**** WARNING: Over 6 hours of racing madness below ****


Firstly, (because you missed it, and because you don't get an idea of how fast these guys really are from the overhead shots) check out Johnny WALKER's Gopro footage from his win in 2014. Do yourself a favour and watch the first 10 minutes. If you don't watch the rest after that then I dont know...
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/4j6dyAMrPZU" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/4j6dyAMrPZU</a>

At 01:30 he almost loses it with a WTF-insane, almost race-ending jump which puts him way ahead of everything else. He is hungry for a win, yelling at ppl in his way, slow officials and rides 100% everywhere, narrowly avoiding crashing quite a bit more often than I would have thought! Boy, he can ride a 2T :notworthy:

The same thing from other less skilled professionals. Racing starts after 03:30


Okay back to the 2015 Program: - They had to change the course to make it possible for some to finish.

Featuring commentary from our own Darryl Curtis!

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Thats it for now. Hopefully others can post footage they find as well.

Love this event!

Thanks for posting. Incredible....only problem is I am about to go bury my head in the sand. My scale of ability is in the minus when I see this and I am getting too old to do anything about it.
Thanks Blue Bull, I am now in deep depression  :imaposer:
Everyone knows the saying " a day without wine is like a day without sunshine"  Truely applicable but as important - a day without my bike is like a day without sunshine !!!

Your not too old Kevin, its in the mind. :thumleft:

Okay...maybe you wont beat Johnny or those guys but I bet you could get up some of those hillclimbs

Prologue looked very doable as well.
