Inaugural Red Bull Bay Climb Comes to San Francisco September 16

Registration is now open for this unwound, crit-style road race up the vertical streets of Potrero Hill

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – August 11, 2017

There’s nothing more exciting in the world of cycling than that last mad dash to the finish line, the all-out leg clobbering final push that separates the meek from the mighty. Red Bull Bay Climb is a straight line sprint up the historic, near vertical Potrero Hill in San Francisco that promises to deliver those end-of-race moments for all involved. Two categories of cyclists can participate in this inaugural event on September 16th: Fixed and Open. The Fixed category features a men’s and women’s division, but is restricted to a single gear. The Open category has a men’s and a women’s division as well and “run-what-ya-brung” spirit: if you want to ride a fat bike, a mountain bike, or something in between, any two-wheel bike is welcome.
