LOCAL MT. ADAMS TEAM “PEEP MY RIDE” PROPELS TO FIRST PLACE THROUGH EDEN PARK

LOCAL MT. ADAMS TEAM “PEEP MY RIDE” PROPELS TO FIRST PLACE THROUGH EDEN PARK

More Than 40,000 Cincinnatians Witnessed Red Bull Soapbox Race in the Queen City

 Cincinnati’s “Peep My Ride” took their candied craft down the 1500ft course and became true victors at Red Bull Soapbox Race Ohio. The 99th edition of the worldwide, gravity-powered soapbox derby hosted 40,000 enthusiastic spectators in the scenic Eden Park, overlooking the Ohio River. The Pharmacy Company (Cincinnati, OH) came in second place and Zombie Turtles (Wilder, KY) rounded out the podium in third place. Team Half-Astronauts, local to Cincinnati, were the winners for the “People’s Choice” award.

 

“We didn’t think we were even going to place, and oh man, we are freaking out!” said team Peep My Ride. “Mt. Adams is a great part of Cincinnati, and we were thrilled with the event coming back to the area. Victory is just the marshmallow on top.” The team will take an all expense paid trip to Las Vegas to hangout with motorsports super star Bryce Menzies and go off roading in the desert.

 

“We were not expecting this when we were filling out our application at 1am a few months ago,” said the Half Astronauts. “We came up with the idea after having a late night thinking of half crazy and spacy things to do, and after it was all said and done, we were psyched that everyone was into our team!” They will win a VIP trip to a major Red Bull event of their choice in 2016.

 

The day kicked off with Cincinnati Bengal’s mascot WHODEY, sporting the American flag on an Ohio-themed car down the course during the National Anthem. The competition featured 41 teams representing a diversity of interests and lifestyles, including Lego lovers, American ninja warriors, college students, artists, sports fans, and more. During an afternoon of fast and furious fun, fans filled Eden Park and experienced the powerful draw of human creativity mixed with machine in the form of a zombie turtle, giant sweet potatoes, a plate of goetta, and a space shark that won’t be easily forgotten.

 

Judges for the wacky downhill race included former Cincinnati Bengal Dhani Jones; R&B and folk music singer Jess Lamb; X-Games freesking medalist Grete Eliassen; Cincinnati’s face of rap Buggs Tha Rocka; and former US national diving champion David Colturi. Teams were judged based on speed, creativity, and showmanship. All crafts must be human-powered – no engines or external energy sources are allowed. Each self-constructed soapbox car can have a maximum weight of 176 lbs. (not including 1 or 2 drivers), and craft drivers must be over the age of 18 to race.

 

Red Bull Soapbox Race has taken place worldwide for nearly 15 years in various venues such as Los Angeles, Johannesburg, Sydney and Hong Kong. Red Bull Soapbox Race Ohio 2015 marked the 99th event in the race’s long history.
