Is this the first event Red Bull have been involved with that featured road bikes? I wonder if it's a signal of their future intentions and if ever we will see a Red Bull pro team, I've always been a bit surprised we haven’t already tbh.

    No - for the past few years they have sponsored the Red Bull "Road Rage" which is a downhill TT.

    I've always felt Park Street would make a superb finish for a pro bike race - wide, straight and pretty steep at the top. Nice to see it getting used for this and seems a really good idea, would like to see more night races.
