Last Thursday nights OpenSprints at PS14 were lots of fun. The event was hosted by Keirin Cycles and it was the first time the roller races were held at a bar versus outside their bicycle shop on South Beach. The affair went on without a hitch, there were a good amount of participants & spectators, $1 beers specials, and free giveaways throughout the night. A few 'grudge matches' were squeezed in during an intermission which was great, members of the audience were invited to partake in the races w/o having to register. I encourage all cycling aficionados to check out this event the next time it's held, it really is an interesting social gathering.
Thanks to Thomas & Nick @ Keirin Cycles for putting this together, PS14 staff, Ian handling the tech stuff, Scratch for emceeing the event, DJs Benton & Juan (No Brainer Thursdays), Leader, Cinelli, Red Stripe, and of course everyone who came out & supported.
Congrats to Claudio who won the cash purse, Kayo who came in 2nd place and won a Cinelli saddle & t-shirt, and to Cynthia who won some Leader prototype handlebars.
