San Diego Season Opener

Barrett Junction, California

EDI opened their season with a race at the out of the way Barrett Junction. This race was the first of four races to qualify for the 2002 Gravity Games. The race course is the same course that IGSA has used, except the course was shortened, moving the finish line up behind the first bend. This gave everyone plenty of time to slow down before entering the congested camp area.

Cape Town, South Africa 2002

Red Bull has turned a small race in a far a way land into the biggest and best event. In its fourth year Red Bull once again threw an incredible party, inviting 160 contestants from 13 countries. What a way to kick off another promising season.

Bainbridge Grand Prix

Bainbridge, Ohio

This years fall race was once again held in Bainbridge, Oh. The race was held a week before the Fall Festival of Leaves. Bainbridge is a small town about an hour east of Cincinnati and about 1.5 hours south of Columbus. There are two traffic lights in town. In October, the trees are turning a wonderful color. The camera just doesn't do a very good job of capturing the colors. This tree was near our pit area.

Streets of San Francisco

San Franciso, CA

The third and perhaps final Red Bull - Streets of San Francisco, once again took place on De Haro St in down town San Francisco. More of an event than a race. More about jumping 100 feet. More about partying.

EDI - France

Annecy, France

EDI's first race of the year was held in France. We ended up on a one lane road in Annecy, France. The course was about 3/4's of a mile, with three hairpins. Speeds in the high 50's entering the hairpin, but you almost had to stop to make it through the hairpin.
