Red Bull Sea to Sky: Lucky Numbers

By RedBull.com Team on 18 September 2013 in Enduro

Three days of racing over the beautiful (but brutal) terrain of the Turkish Riviera.


2013 sees Red Bull Sea to Sky become a three-day event as the Beach Race and the Forest Race will now be contested on separate days. The logic behind spreading out the race before the all-important Olympos Mountain Race is to allow more time to take care of the bikes and/or chilling out at the beach.


Red Bull Sea to Sky kicks off with the 15-minute long Beach Race on Friday 27th September – a motocross-like race with a mass start along the coastline of Kemer village. The track has a lot of sand, natural jumps and a long straight that encourages flat out riding. The result of the Beach Race determines the starting order for the next day’s Forest Race.

No other offroad event offers such a variety of stunning and challenging tracks in such a beautiful landscape. Sunday’s Olympos Mountain Race takes riders all the way to a finish line at an ear-popping altitude of 2.365 metres above sea level.


The drop in temperature competitors will experience as they race from the 28 degrees of the Kemer seaside resort to the top of the near freezing Olympos summit.

The competitors have six hours to pass under the Red Bull arch that marks the finish of the Olympos Mountain Race. Any biker still out on the course after six hours on Sunday will be registered as a DNF.


The percentage of competitors that organisers estimate will reach the finish line this year. Red Bull Sea to Sky may be regarded as one of the most enjoyable Hard Enduro events on the calendar, but it’s no easy ride. With the extreme altitude to consider, the further up the mountain the riders go, the harder it becomes.
