    After reading the flyer, for a moment I thought the audible was in Kevin Bacon’s voice….must have been a flashback to Quicksilver (1986), stored deep somewhere in my noggin.

    I’m a bit intrigued as well.

    Although I can’t see myself entering an alleycat-type race, it would be fun to go and watch.

    I retired from alleycat racing after finishing my last race with four crashes and lots of blood.

    This isn’t even on open roads though, so it should be fun and not nearly as dangerous. Racing or not, I will at least try to make it out to watch.

    I know of one DH’er, Johnnyboy on here, who entered. Trying to convince Tom K as well.

    If these two guys enter, chances are a DHer will win the open cat.

    Hey guys,

    I spoke to Red Bull today and got all the 411. Sounds like an amazing event. We’ll be there covering it and hope to see some familiar faces. It’s 90% sold out.

    Who’s going? I wanna go but would rather not go solo. I’m hoping beer is involved too.

    I’ll be there with a team shooting. RFG is producing the exclusive race video. Be great to see some of you guys out there. If anyone is good with GoPros we could use one more person in the pits mounting cameras and keeping track of them. Let me know.

    Sounds like something I’d want to see! Too bad the open registration is sold out.

    I’m planning on attending the race at 6:30 Jesse. Let’s meet up for beer in a park before.

    I think I read somewhere (can’t remember where), that spectators will not be allowed in to the Ontario Place grounds, and will have to watch from the outside parking lot. Basically this means that you can only see the finishing straight.

    If that’s true, I probably won’t bother going.

    Micah, you’re right no access to the park, but apparently there will lots to do along Lakeshore. Might not make a night of it, but rather pop by in the morning instead. Its just a short cruise from my place anyway.

    Pretty cool mini doc about the origin of these races from Red Bull Media House.

    Check it out. https://www.ridingfeelsgood.com/alleycats-a-red-bull-media-house-documentary/

    Hey I don’t know the area around the park that well…where’s a good spot to set up for spectating if we can’t go in?

    Are the pits outside the park too?

    Looks like an awesome event.
