URBAN DARK KNIGHTS
Despite the steady drizzle that delayed the start of the sessions, a total of 248 riders took part from countries such as Indonesia and the United Kingdom. The 400m downhill course started from inside the National Stadium down six levels of the Singapore Sports Hub and finished at the Waterfront Promenade amidst fast turns, narrow stairwells and a 2 metre vertical drop.
As the third instalment of the series, Red Bull Dark Knights was previously held at Pearls Hill in 2013 and Kent Ridge in 2011, and is the first time that Red Bull Dark Knights has been hosted in an urban setting, creating a brand new challenge for the riders.
“The atmosphere here is fantastic, what a nice country! The course was brilliant, the beginning part was very tight, one of the tightest I’ve experienced in a downhill race, but what an atmosphere, thank you Red Bull Dark Knights for this!” says Ben Moore, 26.
“I’m really happy to have the chance to take part in Red Bull Dark Knights, because it’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a while. So thank you for the opportunity!” says Fitriyanti Riyanti, 25.
(It's also about catching up with friends …)
( … yet having that chance to try out a new track and features.)
(Riding makes us happy … )
( … especially when we can do it with good friends …)
(and with our idols.)
(And it's a bonus …)
( … when we have a few PROs riding amongst us.)
(We are glad RBDK 2016 helped brought the community together that weekend.)
