RED BULL HILL CHASERS: MALAYSIA’S UPHILL BIKE CHALLENGE
Enthusiasts take on the pros at Red Bull Hill Chasers! The event will transform a street in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia into a race track on 15 December as 32 cyclists come together in an attempt to settle the fierce debate of which bike discipline is best uphill.
Red Bull Hill Chasers invites bike enthusiasts to battle the pros in this one of a kind competition.
This December 15, Red Bull Blue & Silver (Product of Europe) will bring one busy road of Kuala Lumpur to a standstill, where 16 elite level bike athletes and 16 bike enthusiasts from BMX, mountain bike, road cycling and fixed-gear compete in a series of grueling head-to-head knockout rounds on the unforgiving incline.
Riders will be paired randomly giving aspirant riders the chance to compete head to head against the 16 invited elite. The enthusiasts will be made up of the fastest 16 riders from a qualifier, open to anyone, held from 3 to 6 pm on the day of the event. A knockout format will halve the field – until just two riders remain for the ultimate showdown.
