Rollapaluza Keirin Festival 2013
Our friends at Rollapaluza sent us a few images from the 2013 Rollapaluza Keirin Festival, the only keirin festival in the United Kingdom. After strong rains the day before the South London Herne Hill velodrome dried out nicelt for some motorpaced action. The senior men’s race was run over three rounds of five heats with an omnium style scoring system to determine the finalists, with all riders getting a chance to ride in a final. The women’s competition was held over three rounds of two heats, with novice competitors rounding out the day and providing a stepping stone for the next generation of track racers to get hooked.
