Twitch 'n Ride: Extreme Ski Racing Behind Motorcycles

Red Bull Twitch ‘n’ Ride is the Latvians’ idea of a good time: step into some (preferably old and someone else’s) skis and get dragged around a motorcross track with 40 or so other rides at crazy speeds, taking on snow, ice and dirt, and some pretty evil kickers. It’s skijoring, and it’s F’in awesome.

Around 150 teams had gathered for the day to race in various classes according to bike engine size. Teams would compete in two races, each one consisting of 10 minutes, plus two laps. (So that’s about 17 minutes of non-stop squats and arm pulls.)

Follow along with Tarquin Cooper as he sets out to conquer the chaos of Red Bull Twitch ‘n’ Ride!
