Each year top riders travel from around the world to compete in the Red Bull Last Man Standing Competition. This demanding competition combines the best terrain from every off-road racing genre. This year, the course was tougher than ever and included an extremely difficult 80 mile test of motorcycle and man.
This was the year that the Christini All Wheel Drive motorcycles came to show that AWD is not only the hottest technology in the sport, but to prove that it makes the winning difference! All the bikes entered in the event performed flawlessly and proved to any skeptics that All Wheel Drive is an incredible advantage to any rider and can stand up to (and surpass) factory bikes under the toughest of riding conditions!
The Last Man Standing competition just about lived up to its name this year, with only two riders completing the event out of a hundred that entered! Among the two was former National Trials Champion Geoff Aaron, riding a Christini AWD KTM 300 XCW! The rest of the Christini team faired well too with Wally Palmer, Cole Kirkpatrick, and Ryan Dudek all holding in the top 25 for the entire race. Of course, we can't forget our Adam Booth, editor of Dirt Bike, for capturing some incredible footage on our helmet cam. Stop back here soon to see some of the Last Man Standing course from the riders point of view.....
