The ABES Winter Bike Festival - Saturday, March 5, is falling into place very nicely. Erick Oland, the roller racing czar, will bring his gear to Rocktona. When Erick wrote me he said, ”Of all the events that I brought my roller set out to last year, yours’ was the most fun, had the best participation, and the best cheering crowd!” I love it.
Moreover, Back Alley Cycle, the little bike shop with a big heart, has agreed to sponsor the AWBF to ensure that roller racing will return to our shindig . Thanks boys, we wouldn’t be the same without you.
This year the AWBF will take a page from the St. Patricks Day Roller Racing format and offer individual sprints and a team relay race that will involve drinking a bubbly drink. So much fun! JS
