The following release is from Red Bull…

On November 12, 2005, under the nocturnal skies above North Texas, only one worthy rider will earn the newly-coveted “Last Man Standing” title. Featuring 200 of the top off-road motorcycle riders in the nation in a multi-stage, elimination competition, the inaugural Red Bull Last Man Standing turns off-road motorcycle racing into a classic Texas-style shootout.

Only 200 riders, representing off-road racing series’ from across the country, were sent invitations in the mail in August. In order to get an invitation, the rider must have finished in the top 10 “AA”/Pro class in a national or regional off-road series or at least in the Top 10 semi-pro class in a national series in 2004. A select few national wildcard riders have also be invited.

Rider and industry response to the event has been phenomenal since the announcement in late July. Rider RSVPs have been streaming in each day. Invited riders must RSVP by Oct. 7 via instructions on the invitation. Any questions may be submitted to
