From what I can gather this is about slogging your guts out on an antique turbo trainer, but it could be fun!

After the recent success of the Rapha Roller race 2 in association with Rollaplauza, the team responsible for the modern resurgence of Roller Racing present two major events:

The Manchester Sprint and Rollapaluza IX-mas Details of both these events below

If you’re coming to your first Rollapaluza roller race you might like to know that:

We provide the bikes to race on.
You can wear anything you want, lycra not necessary.
You can race in trainers, if you want to wear cycling shoes flats or mtb style shoes with recessed cleats are best.

Rollapaluza bring their unique mix of roller-racing, music and beer to Manchester.
The World Famous Central Skatepark, already a haven for indoor extreme sports in Manchester will be taken over by cyclists for one night only, who knows maybe some of the “resident” BMXers might steal the show from the club cyclists and couriers….in the style of Jamie Staff?

The event kicks off at 7pm with qualifying, after signing-on riders will get to try to set the fastest time they can in order to move on to the knockout rounds, competitors will be able to make multiple attempts at setting their best time so turn up early to get in as many as you can.

Rollapaluza events are an exciting spectator sport so bring your mates to cheer you on as you attempt to claim a share of the cash prize which will go to 1st Male, 1st Female and fastest time on the night!

Musical accompaniment to the racing will be provided by DJs “Jono” from London and local boy “Zero” of Manchester. There will be a licensed pub price bar.

A proportion of revenue will be donated to the British Heart Foundation.

A classic Rollapaluza night of Rock and Roller Racing….an open event for all London Cyclists.

Rollapaluza return to the Waterloo Action Centre in Central London for this seasonal extravaganza, this event is in association with THE forum for the fixed wheel enthusiasts of London town, over 40 riders have already “claimed” to be riding, however any one can enter on the day.

There’s bound to be plenty of grudge matches form previous Rollapaluza events and it remains to be seen if the upcoming courier contingent of Seb and Charlie will be able to match the “King of Spin” Simon Jackson, but with absolutely tons of prizes everybody will have something to fight for!
