Ibis/Oakley rider Brian Lopes won the coveted stack of one dollar bills, taking victory at the Red Bull Inside/Out competition at Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park in Cleveland, Ohio November 1.
Like the namesake of the event, the course was set up half outside and half inside the venue. The format was time-trial style, with no qualifying required. And in true Red Bull form Lopes, 37, and fellow riders Chris Herndon, local kid Vance Nonno, and pro Jeff Lenosky had to drop off a roof and over a car at the beginning of the course.
The format turned out to be favourable for Lopes, as the veteran dirt rider clocked in the fastest time of the day at 1:15.22, followed by Herndon, 1.5 seconds behind.
