McElrath Smokes Straight Rhythm Field

10 months ago | Photos: Red Bull Content Pool

It was on an exciting and nostalgic night at the Pomona Fairplex in Southern California that the 2018 Red Bull Straight Rhythm event brought top riders from all faces – including retirement – out onto a linear track for some seriously special head-to-head racing that showcased the skills of two-stroke-mounted racers on 40 seconds’ worth of wide-open obstacles.

Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM’s Shane McElrath emerged as the winner of the premier 250cc division, besting four-time AMA Supercross Champion, Ryan Dungey, who finished second for the night in his first race back since retiring from professional racing in 2017. Ryan Villopoto – another four-time AMA Supercross Champion and retiree – rounded out the podium in third.

You can watch McElrath’s winning run below, as well as the three-hour replay of the entire event if you wish.
