    What type of bike would you use for Red Bull Road Rage?

    I've been a big fan of this sport because you can pit virtually any type of bike in this race.

    If you race this, what bike of choice would you bring?

    1. BMX
    2. XCO MTB
    3. Downhill MTB
    4. Cyclocross
    5. Road bike
    6. Single MTB
    7. Any other bike not mentioned before.

    For those unfamiliar with the sport, this link will help. MTB downhill cycling race - Red Bull Road Rage 2013 - YouTube

    Kinda disappointed by that video. It's Red Bull. I expected jumps, drops, gates, etc. That looks lame.

    Road bike with disc brakes.

    26" xc full suspension fitted with coil shocks, and deep section 700c carbon road wheels w/ disc brakes, for the win.

    Skinsuit and areo helmet, too. Maybe some kind of fairings?

    I once was on a 24 hour team at Winter Park CO. A guy wearing a one piece silver suit rode a bike just like that and kicked major ass. He would have to given his mount and costume. I'll never forget getting passed by him on a rocky downhill. I was on an Intense Spider and he dropped my like I was track standing. Proving once again, it's the motor not the machine. Was that YOU Sanchez? If so, up yours.
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.
