After kick-starting the roller-racing resurgence in recent years, Rollapaluza has decided to launch a nationwide quest to find Britain’s 'King of Spin' and 'Queen of Cadence'.

The series will comprise of stand-alone regional events, each one identical to the Rollapaluza nights they have become known for, with DJs and a unique atmosphere. These regional events will also act as qualifiers for a “Grand Finale” in London, with huge crowds and great prizes promised.

The regions will be:

Scotland
Wales
North and Midlands
South West
London and East
South

Rollapaluza is known for its inclusive approach to cycling competition and all competitors will compete on identical Condor bikes and the standard Rollapaluza gearing.

There will also be a national youth competition, with the younger competitors taking part in the afternoon, before the evening event commences.

After refurbishing four vintage rigs Rollapaluza now manufactures its own Roller race rigs all of which are produced to be identical. This means that for possibly the first time ever roller-racers can be assured that they are competing on a nation-wide level playing field and as Rollapaluza are now opening up international franchises with these same rigs there is even potential for future world-wide challenges.

Olympians Chris Hoy and Craig Maclean have raced Rollapaluza, but the current 500m record is held by rising British track star Matt Crampton with 17.90 seconds. There will be a special prize to the rider who sets the fastest time of the series and a bonus if that time is a new record.
