Opensprints Roller Racing Solution
Opensprints is a few year long project to bring Goldsprints roller racing to the masses, breaking down the technological barriers of indoor racing and providing a platform for developers to work with. We’ve covered the recent resurgence of roller racing in Issue #4 and Issue #12 and with the help of one of the Opensprints developers and article contributors Evan Farrar have locally brought roller racing to our hometown with Black and Goldsprints. Now the entire operation is simpler than ever, with the pictured 4-bike USB based timing setup available for $360, or you can save some dollars and just purchase a parts kit. Software updates and online support forums are readily available, making it possible for anyone with a computer and rollers to stage their own indoor races.
