ROLLER FRENZY II Kyle "Bradbry" Franson wins 4Dec

A full field of 32, competitors aged between 6 and 66 years in races that anyone could win. Kyle "Bradbry" Franson was victorious over Peter "P-diddy" Davis in an epic final.

Quite a few thrills and spills and danial-san should be pleased that the handicapping became quite an exact science!
Thanks again to CRUMPLER for some great prizes, as well as the SECRET SQUIRREL who also donated some excellent goods.

Thanks to Port Adelaide CC and South Coast Cycling. A lot of volunteers made it the night it was, thanks to Renee B, Catherine B, Ken G, Tim McE, Alex B, Grant M, Nigel K, Barb the barlady, the BBQ cooker, and some completely random bloke who I think just wandered in off the street and ended up doing all the timing with great enthusiasm for the whole night - Clint! Apologies if I have forgotten anyone!
:lol:

$50 Consolation Event
All knocked-out riders (who were still able to ride) were invited to compete in a consolation event - Team Sprint. Two teams of 5 were formed. Every rider had to complete one 500m lap of the rollers, with their team mates holding/assisting changeovers. Team Red had some novel rider changeover methods, including having a lighter rider already clipped in & on their bike off the rollers and lifting the rider and bike straight on! Team Blue looked like their were going to overtake Team Red in home straight then disaster struck - Thunder Thighs' chain came off with 350m left to ride, so Sheepstations' Team Red could then cruise to victory. Sheepstations was so overcome with the emotion/exertion of the event he had to have a little lie-down :lol:

Had a great time again :grin:

Good mix of competitors and the roar of the crowd was deafening when Pete was racing the finals!
The ideal number of bikes is one... I just can't decide which one.

The roar was inspirational fellas! Had a great night even though I lost a lot of motor function in my legs for a while. Sheppo you should have dragged the kilo out for a while longer! In the interest of all finalists in the future, I think the kilo should be competed on sky's tricycle...

YES!

Would there be insurance implications with this? I'd certainly be keen to ride in the 'no holder' class...
Two wheels good, four wheels bad. In a pinch, three will do...

Does that mean bunny hopping on to the rollers at the start?

I suggest that a no holders event would be interesting but dangerous eg apart from the rider, there could be problems with injury to spectatators and damage to the venue. I have only briefly thought where I would have finished and what damage I might have done after my blowout without holders on Friday night.
Perhaps a no holders event could be held between consenting adults in private.

Graham Zucker told me that in the past there was a roller derby held as part of a TV sports program in Adelaide on Ch 7. He came off the rollers on live TV - he did suggest his fall was the highlight of the event.

You still need a holder to get going - and retain the people there as 'attendants' in the case you tip of the side of the rollers. There's no where to go if you do fall - you just tip over sideways (not shoot across the room :lol:

Last time, Sean H pretty much rode without a holder!

They uses to have roller racing on Wide World of Sports too I believe?

Slowest roller racing is also a possibility.....

I do sort of remember seeing the roller races on wide world of sports..

Interesting to know that Zucker stacked it on tv :D
I do rollers without a holder and have come off in the lounge room a few times and would have liked someone there to catch me :D however I'd be happy enough to do the ride without anyone anyone actually holding me...

I'm aiming to do the next event..

Practical experience suggest at worse: on yer arse about 18 inches in front of where you started. Even rotating at 100kph+ your wheels have quite a lot less energy than is required to accellerate your body any great degree.

You can leave some throughly awesome burnout marks in various surfaces though :twisted:
Nose tingling fumes from:
Lino
Synthetic carpets
Fake grass
Regupol
:lol:
cheers
Matt..

with the right tools, I can do anything
with the wrong tools, you'll have to give me a minute ... and a new right shoulder ... and a new upper spine ...
