Fans of bike racing and extreme sports in general will, for the second year in a row, have the opportunity to catch a unique spectacle of a race right in downtown San Antonio, at the Alamo no less. (Because nothing screams madcap bike race like a recently crowned World Heritage Site, am I right?) Red Bull Last Stand attendees will witness qualifying and final rounds of competition in what is known as a crit race, “a type of cycling that combines a short track, 40 mile-per-hour speeds, and hairpin turns,” with categories for men and women, fixed and geared bikes. All this, amid a festival-like atmosphere (you know how Red Bull gets down) in a decidedly unconventional setting should make for a heck of a day. For those who follow this sport in particular, it’s worth noting that participants will include such elite riders as Addison Zawada, Stefan Rothe, Sammi Runnels (reppin’ Texas), Paolo Panzeri, Lorna Dudding and Ronnel Hualda. Free, 1-10pm Sat, Alamo Plaza, 300 Alamo Plaza, redbull.com/laststand. — JC
