    For those who missed the red bull road rage (http://www.redbullroadrage.com), it was awesome. Speed traps speeds were in 58mph+ range. A couple of good wipe outs took out a few riders. The mountain bikers had their day in the end, with Miles Rockwell (former world champ) taking the win.

    There was talk of this becoming a series next year. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

    Tons of pics here:

    It would only be interesting if the spectators could see the majority of the course. You know America, always looking for the next fight or crash. I don't see too many pro roadies getting involved in such mayhem. Their directors would have a fit.

    They almost had Paulo Salvodelli this year, but he had another obligation. The organizer said he expects to have him next year. Agreed though, seems like a big risk for someone in the middle of a successful racing career.
