How fast can you go without touching the ground?
Red Bull No Paws Down means four kilometres at 85kph, 18 hairpins, and a 14 percent gradient. Oh, and no hands down allowed.
While most of us would likely come to grief at the first turn, the risk of going down a gnarly stretch of asphalt like ‘Bear’s Guts’ in Osilica, Slovenia, didn’t discourage the 72 riders from taking part in Red Bull No Paws Down.
The first two riders to reach the bottom advance into the next round and if the duck tape on your palms shows any signs of sliding with your hand, you’re out!
