The Red Bull Rock Drop

Red Bull, in conjunction with Waihi and GT bikes have announced the Red Bull Rock Drop, a gravity assisted mountain bike event that will take place inside the Martha Mine. The deepest mine in New Zealand.

The event will take place on December 4th at the mine, which is essentially in the heart of the Waihi township. Below is the official blurb from Red Bull:

"On Saturday December 4th the Martha Mine in Waihi will be transformed into the ultimate downhill mountain bike course when 80 of New Zealands top mountain bike riders descend 250 vertical meters, 4 riders at a time to the mine floor with hope of being crowned King of the mine!


Red Bull Rock Drop pits man against mine, in a way 4 battle riders descend below the Earth's surface picking their own line on a downhill course the likes of which have never been seen in NZ. Rock Drops, gap jumps, mine trucks, free ride and speed lines, Red Bull Rock Drop has it all!


With $10,000 in prize money up for grabs Red Bull Rock Drop will see the best of the best pinning it and pointing to the bottom of the Martha Mine


If you think you have what it takes to compete in Red Bull Rock Drop complete the registration form above and get ready to ride."

So I'd be a bit fucking mad to enter it right...  er, maybe less said right now is better?

No matter what, I will be at the event.
