Fixed-gear riders from across North Carolina will take their skills to the track in a test of mental stamina, technical precision and raw strength at Red Bull Mini Drome in Charlotte on April 14, 2012.
At Red Bull Mini Drome, skill, speed, balance, and braves are brought together on this steep, shrunken down version of the traditional velodrome. With track speeds exceeding 30 mph, the event is sure to be one of the most challenging and treacherous to hit the fixed-gear scene. Competitors will need to pedal hard and watch the ledge if they want to take home the title of first ever U.S. Red Bull Mini Drome Champion.
Red Bull Mini Drome is a free event for all, but only fixed- and single-gear bikes will hit the track, so bring your fixie and your friends. Registration will run from 12:00 - 1:00 pm for the first 75 riders to register in competition.
Qualifying will begin at 1:00pm for time trials. Each rider will get 10 laps to set their best time, with the top 32 riding moving on to the main event at 9:30 pm -- after the pro races of the Charlotte Criterium -- where they’ll duel it out in pursuit battles. The rider who clocks the fastest time will take home bragging rights and the title.
