Rapha Roller Race: Culture Clash II

Roller racing in London Credit: Rapha

Rapha is staging a grand night of roller racing on Saturday 17th November 2007 at the Classic Car Club in Old Street, London.

The evening will feature a four-way clash between teams of bicycle couriers, cycle journalists, media folk and a ‘dark horse’ Dutch team made up of unnamed riders. The 500 metre sprints will be staged in a boxing ring, pitching rider against rider for added intensity and drama. The night also includes a ‘Have-a-Go’ Race: the chance for anyone to test their skills on the rollers with the best times going through to a final on the main stage.

This Rapha Roller Race follows the success of the Rapha Culture Clash staged at the Shoreditch Town Hall in February 2007. There, 300 people witnessed Cycling Weekly’s team of journalists bag the team and individual competition, with Simon Richardson crowned as the King of Cadence. While the male cycle messenger team finished last, the girl messengers won in convincing fashion over the Fireflies media team. The ‘Have-a-go’ was won by Simon Jackson, with Mark Denton second.

The event takes place at the Classic Car Club, 250 Old Street, London EC1 from 7pm until 1am. Entry is £10 on the door with £2.50 going to Leuka; a leukemia research charity. Numbers limited to 500. Tickets can also be bought from the Rapha web site for £8 - follow the link on the right for more info. There will be prizes of Rapha products and other merchandise, DJs and a paying bar.

Note: All racers will be covered by insurance provided by the British Cycling Federation. Competitors will only be able to race on the bicycles provided. The competition roller set used are not free rollers, but fixed to the front fork for safety reasons.
