How to play Road Rash on Linux using Wine

It is no big deal if you have installed Wine on your Linux system. You can get the installer for the abandoned game from http://www.classic-gaming.net/game/251/ and run it using Wine.

As this game uses MIDI sound files, you might want to install Timidity to hear the iconic soundtrack. Timidity needs to be run as a background process. For this, execute the command:
timidity -iA &

before launching the game.
