Holeshot Race Gate - Practice Starting Gate | Risk Racing

Get Podium Winning Starts

Getting a holeshot is easy right? ...Wrong, but most races are won and lost at the drop of the gate, so perfecting your starting technique is key to any MX racer who wants to be on the podium. Improve your reaction time and learn to control power out of the gate and into the first corner.

Practice Made Easy

Remote Start

The “Holeshot” is a completely random timed, electronic, wireless, practice starting gate. This innovative product allows riders to independently practice their starts. When the rider presses the wireless remote button mounted on their crossbar pad, it will activate a computer controlled timing sequence which will drop the gate randomly.

Random Timing

After the remote button is pressed a green LED will illuminate on the gate. This lets the rider know the gate has received the signal and gives the rider 2 seconds to get his or her hands back on the bars. The LED will then turn red and start blinking. When it starts blinking it is like the 30 second board turning sideways. Get ready becuase the gate will now drop randomly between 1-5 seconds, just like an AMA Pro National!

Resetting the gate is as easy as riding by and stepping on the backside of the hoop without dismounting. Multiple gates can be electronically linked for multi-racer, bar banging practice. Simply plug multiple gates into each other using the supplied linking wire and all the gates will drop at the same time using a random timed signal from one remote button.

Instant Drop

The Holeshot also has a new “Instant Drop” feature. If you are using a trainer, parent or riding buddy to practice your starts and want to bypass the random timing sequence in order to control the drop sequence, you can plug the remote button directly into the gate. Simply plug the 6 foot long cable supplied with your gate directly into the remote button and into the ride side of your gate. This will automatically eliminate the wireless signal and random sequence. The gate will drop as soon as the button is pressed.

Link Multiple Gates

Linking multiple gates is easy for bar-to-bar practice simulating race environment starts!
