The field has been announced for the Red Bull Road Rage, which will be held in Tuna Canyon, California, USA on November 5. The event will determine who the fastest descender is with riders taking on a 2 mile course with a 2,000 foot elevation drop, cliff-hanging berms and 120 degree turns around rock faces at speeds up to 60 mph. Half of the riders are California locals, but there will be out of towners like Marty Nothstein and Cedric Gracia of France.
