The second of two Red Bull Street Light Sessions rolls into Manchester on Saturday 8th October 2011
Brainchild of Street Trials legend and YouTube sensation, Danny Macaskill, Red Bull Street Light Sessions sets out to engage existing trials riders and newcomers to the sport alike, by creating innovative trials bike setups in two very unique, and unexpected inner-city locations in the UK.
“It is really exciting for me to be back riding in the UK after a year of traveling, and the Red Bull Streetlight Sessions are a great way for me to catch up with the Trials scene over here. I am excited to see how the setup we are planning to build in Manchester is received, it should offer a great development platform for all levels of rider, and the location is simply insane.” (Danny MacAskill)
The event will breathe life into the derelict ‘River Street Development’, that stands tall on the perimeter of the Mancunian Way. Gates will swing open at 5pm, where up to 500 spectators will be able to watch the crème of the global trials scene in action, with a selected number being given the opportunity to ride the course alongside Danny or partake in a ‘Street Light Taster Session’. The events will run into the evening, gradually becoming illuminated under city lights, before coming to a close at 10pm.
Red Bull and Inspired Bicycles will run three, hour long ‘Street Light Taster Sessions’ offering a limited number of ‘street trials’ first timers a shot at the sport in a safe, progressive environment. Sign up at www.redbull.co.uk/streetlightto be in with your chance of securing a place. A fleet of bikes and helmets will be available on site for those who require them.
Experienced Trials riders and those keen to spectate need simply turn up on the day, no ticket is required.
