Messengerpaluza II - March 20th Horseshoe
10.01.09 by Buffalo Bill
As assiduous readers of Moving Target will know, roller racing as a spectacle was re-introduced to these shores by London’s bicycle messengers. And Rollapaluza have taken roller-racing to the nation in 2008. Now firmly re-established in public’s mind as a thrilling night out, they have hosted Olympic champions on their rig, and successfully promoted their own events at diverse venues. Indeed, the two fastest times posted are those of Craig Mclean (500m in 18.94) and Chris Hoy (19.44).
So it is with great pleasure that Moving Target announces the second messenger-only Rollapaluza, which is taking place at the Horseshoe pub, Friday March 20th. Please note that only current messengers, ie actual working couriers, not exengers or messenger friends, will be allowed to race. But, of course, all spectators will be welcome. The proceeds of the event will go to the London Courier Emergency Fund.
Reports and results from last year’s are messengerpaluza here. Those messenger wishing to increase their cadence can have a go at the Rollapaluza Brass Monkey events, coming up next week at the Imbibe bar, and on the 11th February at the Horseshoe.
