Ourselves and around fifty others will compete in human-powered soapboxes that will career downhill at Alexandra Palace outlaid with jumps, bumps, curves and swerves to get to the finish line – competing against the clock.
Off the race track, there will be plenty of action to keep the crowds entertained including face painting, ‘people pit-stops’ and live music from DJs.
Chief Designer at Red Bull Racing, Rob Marshall; street trials pro-rider, Danny MacAskill and multi-award winning mountain biker, Gee Atherton; will be the judges on the day.
The course opens to the public at 10.30am, racing commences at 12pm and the winner is crowned at 4pm.
Red Bull Soapbox Race 2013 is at Alexandra Palace on Sunday 14 July. For more info see Red Bull Soapbox Race
