Red Bull Last Stand Weekend Recap With PowerDot

Everyday people from around the world travel to San Antonio, TX to visit the legendary Alamo and learn about it’s famous battle. This past Saturday October 13th, for the 3rd year in row, hundreds of cyclists descended upon Alamo City for their own type of battle: The 2018 Red Bull Last Stand.

A closed-circuit, 200+ rider race with athletes reaching speeds of up to 40 MPH around Alamo Plaza. The 2,690-foot, rain soaked, nine turn track entertained thousands of spectators with both geared and fixed geared men’s and women’s races. This year’s criterium or ‘crit’ race also stands out from most races with it’s new ‘Eliminator’ format. In this style set up, the rider who crosses the finish line last on each lap gets eliminated until there’s just one rider left to take their final celebration lap.

We had the opportunity to provide some very needed recovery to these winning athletes as well as providing some R&R to many spectators between races. Using electrical muscle stimulation pre and post race has many benefits and these athletes needed all they could get. We had riders funnel through the recovery booth one by one to treat sore quads or tight hamstrings after their races. PowerDot would like to thank everyone who came by the booth to visit as well as Red Bull for provided yet another event at Alamo Plaza.
