Last year saw the very first Red Bull Hill Chasers event in Bristol. The event was organised to settle a dispute as to which type of bike wold be faster in an uphill sprint. This wasn’t just any hill, it was possibly the steepest hill in Bristol located on Park Street.
The event was great laugh and the Red Bull Hill Chasers event is back for 2012! Red Bull Hill Chasers is an event open to all types of bikes from BMX, Mountain bike, and fixed gear. What ever your ride is and if you think you’ve got what it takes to out pace a roadie on his carbon fiber bike on your street bike then make sure you go.
