Rapha Cross Roller Race
Saturday 11th October. Doors open at 7:30pm. Racing starts at 8pm.
It’s October and the road season is over, way over. It’s time for mud, rain and cold. Time for barriers, bells and run-ups. Thank God it’s time for Cross. And, it’s time for the first-ever, never-done-before, Rapha Cyclocross Roller Race.
This is a Roller Race ingeniously mixed with a cross race. And a party. There will be pageantry, showman-and-showwoman-ship. There will be spectacle. Come one and all to the Rapha Cross Roller Race and behold, as 12 men’s and 4 women’s teams compete for glory and prizes, and most importantly for your entertainment.
Cross Roller Racing is a highly competitive and thoroughly costumed night of 500 meter on-stage roller sprints combined with running, dashing and jumping through a 250 yard indoor cross course, complete with barriers, run-ups and Zoo-Bomb bikes.
- Women’s first prize is a Sweatpea Bicycles semi-custom cross frame.
- Men’s first prize is a Signal Cycles semi-custom cross frame.
Entry is $10, with the first drink free. 21-and-over show. Beer thankfully from Portland’s own Bridgeport Brewing Company.
The new Rapha Cross Range and Rouleur 2008 Photo Annual will be on display and for order.
