99 Goldsprints video
9.07.08 by Buffalo Bill
As I mentioned here, the revival of roller racing as a spectacle in London was inspired by a trip to the 1999 Cycle Messenger World Championships in Zurich. It was there that Greg Tipper saw the Goldsprints “Home-Trainer Race”. The industrious and inventive guys at Rollapaluza have obtained a video of that race. Check it out on their video page here. Worth a look for the footage of London’s own Cadence Queen Crissi going up against the Teutonic Titaness Yvonne Kraft, and a very, very young looking Felipe ‘King of New York’.
