Red Bull Sea to Sky will take place on October 6-8, 2016
Red Bull Turkey, the Kemer Enduro Club and XVENTURE are excited to announce that the 7th edition of Red Bull Sea to Sky will take place on October 6 - 8, 2016, in Kemer, Turkey. International top riders such as Jonny Walker, Graham Jarvis and Andreas “Letti” Lettenbichler will again fight for a total of €2O,OOO – the highest prize money paid in Extreme Enduro – at the “most enjoyable Extreme Enduro race”.
A top guns will go for gold at Red Bull Sea to Sky 2016
It’s a unique and winning concept: The outstanding combination of racing Extreme Enduro at the highest international standards, three days of racing action with three different racing styles and a track that takes the riders and their bikes literally from Sea to Sky will once again make the world's top pro riders as well as the ambitioned amateurs come out to Kemer at the picturesque Turkish Riviera.
The number of riders to race the “most enjoyable Extreme Enduro” race is most likely going to grow again: In 2016 more than 350 riders are expected to show up at the 7th edition in early October.
The registration on www.redbullseatosky.com will start on Friday, March 18, 2016 at 15:00 CET!
Red Bull Sea to Sky is widely recognized as the most enjoyable Extreme
Enduro race also by the international top riders and they will all show up
in Kemer: Red Bull Sea to Sky 2015 winner Graham Jarvis (UK, Husqvarna),
Jonny Walker (UK, KTM), Andreas "Letti" Lettenbichler (GER, KTM)
as well as his son Manuel Lettenbichler (GER, KTM), who dominates the
ongoing SuperEnduro World championship, Alfredo Gomez (ESP, KTM), Paul
Bolton (UK, KTM) and Wade Young (RSA, Sherco) to mention a few.
7th edition with new tracks
Three days of pure Extreme Enduro racing action - the concept works very well: 3 races – 3 styles – 3 days
The Kemer Enduro Club team started working on the new 2016 tracks right after the 2015 edition was history and XVENTURE mastermind Martin Freinademetz will add his 13 years of experience in designing Extreme Enduro races – such as Red Bull Romaniacs and most recently Red Bull Minas Riders in Brazil – to provide literally breathtaking but ridable race tracks!
Olympos Mountain Race
The Gold Medal will be reserved only for the riders who make it to the Red Bull finish arch on the peak of the Olympos Mountain at an altitude of 2,365m after about 65km. The organizers expect the fastest riders to reach the finish after little more than three hours and a total of abour 30-40 riders to finish the race within the 7 hours limit. There will be some rather technical surprises after the Silver finish that will separate the men from the boys.
The Silver Medal will be handed to riders who are making it all the way to the Silver Finish within the 7 hours of race time.
Those who make it through the riverbed and the first third of the overall track will earn a Bronze Medal. So there will be a great reward and souvenir for the majority of the starters who come prepared and have the skills you need in Extreme Enduro!
World's highest Prize Money
Red Bull Turkey, the Kemer Enduro Club and XVENTURE are proud to once again announce the world's highest prize money paid out in Extreme Enduro:
At both, the Beach Race and Forest Race, the following money will be paid
Edition 7: Bigger and better than ever!
What can we do better than the year before? That’s the question the organizers are constantly thinking about to take the race, the event and the overall experience to perfection. Just to mention a few improvements for Red Bull Sea to Sky Edition 7:
1. Improved Schedule
2. Race Village
3. Different Hotels to fit each budget
Pre-Race “Train with the Pros”
In addition to the “Train with the Pros” there will be a number of guided tours prior to the race – especially the Olympos Peak Ride on October 4, 2016 will be spectacular. All this makes up for a week of Extreme Enduro adventure and excitement.
Nothing beats the feeling to race your own bike and the riders have been working hard to make their bike the perfect bike. To make participating in the most enjoyable Extreme Enduro Race even more convenient the Red Bull Sea to Sky organizers offer a reliable, professional, safe as well as affordable bike transport from Central Europe to Turkey – and certainly back!
The organizers are working with an international freight forwarder and the bikes are insured against theft and damage during the transport! The route will go from the UK to Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Romania and Turkey! The truck is on it’s way and will get the bikes to Kemer early enough for the riders to participate in the “Olympos Peak Ride” pre-race event!
If you want to race Red Bull Sea to Sky, can’t bring your own bike and need a competitive bike to rent, there are reliable partners who rent out competitive Enduro bikes in Kemer. Details on www.redbullseatosky.com/race/bike-rental
