Messengerpaluza II - Janky, Nhatt fastest couriers in London
24.03.09 by Buffalo Bill
Friday night at the Horseshoe – it must be a roller race! And what a roller race it was. Rollapaluza showed off their new digital rig to the messenger masses, and London’s couriers showed that they still love their creation: modern roller racing.
Roller novices Alex and Ramjet wowed the crowd at the top of the leader board in qualification, but Janky James posted the quickest time of the night with 20.61 in the knock-out rounds and convincingly beat Ramjet in the final. Nhatt, fresh from her baking marathon with Team Totally Awesome, beat Mary to take the female title.
Many thanks to the DJs: Nhatt, Akeley, Sleepy and Dazzler, and especially to Rollapaluza.
And £335 was raised for the London Courier Emergency Fund! Nice work.EXCLUSIVE: get this shirt at the Donkey Derby, Friday night!
