I can’t make head or tail of the web-site, as it’s all in Japanese, apart from the words ‘gold sprint’, which of course means roller race. All that’s missing from that list is the name Chris Hoy, who is, of course, the reigning Olympic and World Champ of Sprint and Keirin, and who raced the Rollapaluza rollers at the Salford Nocturne, and failed to beat the record. For more on that event, see the Rollapaluza report.
