October 05, 2015 (Toronto, ON) – Saturday saw the return of Red Bull Race the Place in Toronto at iconic Ontario Place for a two-wheeled thrill ride through the abandoned amusement park. Last year’s event marked the first time anyone had accessed the grounds since the doors were shut in 2011.

The event featured two classes of racing on multiple laps of the 3.4km long fast, technical circuit with tight corners, bridges and narrowing lanes: open and fixed gear. Jamie Gilgen (ON) Rise Racing took the top spot in the women’s open (geared) category, while Peter Disera (ON) H&R Block won the men’s race, while Josh Tyrell earned the victory in the fixed gear event.
