Last week we reported the news of Alta Motors entering its Redshift electric MX machine in the lites class of the Red Bull Straight Rhythm taking place at Fairplex in Pomona, California on October 22nd.

You can watch the event at from 5:30 p.m. PST on Saturday Oct 22, or if you’re in the LA area buy tickets to attend at

If you’re unfamiliar with Straight Rhythm, this is a head to head half-mile drag race through the biggest supercross-style jumps, big air, and whoops. There are no turns, and only the highest-performance gasoline motorcycles have ever entered the competition, until now.

To see former pro-racer Josh Hill do a practice run on the Redshift MX, check out the video below.
