Red Bull Ride to the Hills 2006: Day One, Monday

The Red Bull Ride To the Hills natural terrain FMX contest got underway Monday, heading straight to well-known So Cal freeride spot, Ocotillo Wells for its first stop. The remote locale is best known for its dry humps of mud that make for perfect jumping transitions. Ride To the Hills is unique in the fact that the riders themselves vote for one another to declare a winner by watching video clips of one another’s’ runs, but the actual voting doesn’t start until Tuesday; Monday was just a day for scouting jumps and picking hot lines for the first day of the contest.

Since there are no winners to report from today’s session of riding, we instead decided to bring you a photo gallery of some of the jumps and scenery from Day 1…
