Rollapaluza extend Winter league and head to Cambridge

Brass Monkey now up to six rounds + Cambridge gets rolling

by Tony Farrelly   January 9, 2009  


Next week will be a big one for roller-racing fans. By popular demand Rollapaluza have extended their original two round London Winter league into a six round competition with the next round happening on Wednesday. On Friday the rollers head east to Cambridge for a fund-raising event with Team Cambridge.

Rider entry for the Cambridge bash is full, but spectators are welcome, and get in free. There will be plenty of local talent worth watching too, including the legendary Dave Le Grys UK cycling land-speed record holder (110mph), Masters sprint champion and roller-race supremo… you'd better stand well back when it's his turn.

This event kindly sponsored by Ben Hayward Cycles is in aid of Arthur Rank House. More details on the Team Cambridge site.

The third round of the Brass Monkey Winter League takes place at the Imbibe Bar on the Blackfriars Road as usual it's five quid to ride with open qualification happening between 6 and 9pm followed by the knockout rounds.
