Did you find yourself yearning for more Excitebike-style action after Round One of Red Bull's Straight Rhythm course? So did we, which is why we're happy to report that Round Two has officially been released. In the video you'll see below, Cole Seely and Jessy Nelson line up side by side at the beginning of the half-mile course. Seely has the early advantage, which can easily be attributed to the Honda CR450R he's riding versus the CR250R Nelson is aboard, but the contest stays interesting throughout.
Although the energy drink-laden team from Red Bull says this is presently just an exhibition stunt, we're officially hoping it blossoms into something more. And, since the drink company says the interest generated in Straight Rhythm proves "there's potential for a new competitive moto format," our wish may soon be granted.
