Press Release: Taking place on September 23, 2010 at 8pm at Las Palmas Mexican Grill (953 East Sahara Avenue) in Last Vegas, the 2010 GoldSprints World Championships will offer racers in both men’s and women’s divisions $10,000 in cash and prizes. GoldSprints roller racing pits recreational riders, professional cyclists and industry fans against each other as they aim to complete the fastest 500 and 1,000-meter sprints on track bikes affixed to rollers.
The 2010 GoldSprint World Championships will see the best GoldSprints racers from around the world converge to battle for supremacy. Qualifying rounds, hosted by WestCoast GoldSprints as well as OpenSprints organizers on local levels, start August 1st across cities worldwide and culminate at the 2010 World Championships in Las Vegas. Wild Card entries will be open to Interbike tradeshow attendees and the general public, with wild card qualifying rounds taking place at Kreitler Rollers’ Interbike booth #4381 on September 22 and 23.
“Last year’s GoldSprints event at Interbike was a screaming success because attendees were so stoked on the Kreitler Cup,” said Murphy Mack, who founded WestCoast GoldSprints in 2006. “This year we’re taking roller racing to the next level, with preliminary races held in partnership with OpenSprints and evening entertainment from H.R. Muff’N Stuff and the Pedal Panties Girls. We’re looking forward to the no-holds barred, sweat-inducing, crowd-rousing battle of the first ever GoldSprints World Championships.
