The 2017 Red Bull Sea To Sky race is currently underway. Three days of racing kicked off yesterday with the Beach Race. No sunbathing and boogie boarding for these competitors. They were pitted against mega sand whoops, logs, tires, concrete whatchamacallits, and all manner of mayhem on the extreme endurocross-like course. And this isn't even the main race! This race is for starting position for Friday's Forest Race, which in turn determines the starting position of the Mountain Race on Saturday. Whoever wins the Mountain Race wins the 2017 Red Bull Sea To Sky.
