October 4/11 18:56 pm - Red Bull Mini Drome Rides into Toronto on October 8 at the Brickworks
Posted by Editoress on 10/4/11
Red Bull Mini Drome, the ultimate arena to showcase one’s cycling skills, brings speed, balance, and bravado together on a steep and shrunken version to give competitors the most challenging and treacherous ride of their lives with track speeds reaching up to 35km/h. A scaled down velodrome was constructed for the sole purpose of seeing who can complete ten laps in the shortest time. On Saturday October 8, 2011 cyclists will take their street skills to the track built at The Brickworks in a test of mental stamina, technical precision, and raw strength. From its roots across the globe in New Zealand, Red Bull Mini Drome will take its debut laps in Canada with three stops: Montreal (September 22), Toronto (October 8), and Vancouver (October 23).
All registrants will get a time trial at which point the top riders will be placed in a bracket to go head-to-head with each other until there is only one cyclist left to be crowned victorious.
