WestCoast GoldSprints and OpenSprints unite to showcase best of
international roller racing talent

San Francisco, CA – WestCoast GoldSprints, the premiere event
organizer dedicated to roller racing, has announced it will host the
2010 GoldSprints World Championships this year in Las Vegas,
coinciding with Interbike and in partnership with OpenSprints, the
electronic timing solutions provider for roller racing, Kreitler
Rollers and Marin Bikes.

Taking place on September 23, 2010 at 8pm at Las Palmas Mexican Grill
(953 East Sahara Avenue) in Last Vegas, the 2010 GoldSprints World
Championships will offer racers in both men’s and women’s divisions
$10,000 in cash and prizes. GoldSprints roller racing pits
recreational riders, professional cyclists and industry fans against
each other as they aim to complete the fastest 500 and 1,000-meter
sprints on track bikes affixed to rollers.

The 2010 GoldSprints World Championships will see the best GoldSprints
racers from around the world converge to battle for supremacy.
Qualifying rounds, hosted by WestCoast GoldSprints as well as
OpenSprints organizers on local levels, start August 1st across cities
worldwide and culminate at the 2010 World Championships in Las Vegas.
Wild Card entries will be open to Interbike tradeshow attendees and
the general public, with wild card qualifying rounds taking place at
Kreitler Rollers’ Interbike booth #4381 on September 22 and 23.

“Last year’s GoldSprints event at Interbike was a screaming success
because attendees were so stoked on the Kreiter Cup,” said Murphy
Mack, who founded WestCoast GoldSprints in 2006. “This year we’re
taking roller racing to the next level, with preliminary races held in
partnership with OpenSprints and evening entertainment from H.R.
Muff’N Stuff and the Pedal Panties Girls. We’re looking forward to the
no-holds barred, sweat-inducing, crowd-rousing battle of the first

New Stickers ordered....

Got a good kick out of the idea at the bar on Saturday night and placed the order this morning. Only after I placed the order did I try and Google "PEDALPHILE" and see that my drunken bar idea was something other drunks had already thought of at other bars. Ah well, we still have 500 stickers a coming towards KC in the next couple of weeks. Should be fun passing those out......

Also, if anyone is interested, Zeke has returned from the RAGBRAI and posted his photos. You can view all of them HERE.

Lastly, since this is the KC Sprints blog I think I should mention that we will be setting up at the 816 Collective's Benefit party on Sunday, August 22nd. This is the Collective's yearly fund drive at Californo's in Westport. They are planning on a carnival type event and we will be putting BMX bikes on the rollers for the little kids to race. Once I get a flier I'll post it up.
