Red Bull Mini-Drome Toronto!

Day: Sat, Sept 22

Time: Races start at 2pm

Red Bull Mini-Drome is a unique Fixed Gear Event based on open registration : anyone with a bicycle that fits the requirements can enter the event and have the opportunity to participate in an insane and thrilling bike race that takes place on the World’s smallest Velodrome.

Cyclists will take their street skills to the track in a test of mental stamina, technical precision and raw strength. From it’s roots across the pond, in England, Red Bull Mini Drome will take it’s debut laps in Canada with stops in Montreal QC, Toronto ON, and Vancouver BC.

Red Bull Mini Drome brings skill, speed, balance, and bravado together on a steep and shrunken version, far from the traditional velodrome, to give competitors the most challenging and treacherous ride of their lives.

All registrants will get a time trial at which point the top riders will be placed in a bracket to go head to head with each other until there is only one cyclist left to be crowned victorious.

3 Main Rules:

1. You have to have wheel size bigger than 26″                                                                                                                                                         

2. Single-speed bike required

Photos from the Red Bull Mini Drome

Two weekends ago, the Red Bull Mini Drome came to Toronto and set up at the Evergreen Brickworks. Dandyhorse Magazine was there and caught all the action:

In the heart of Evergreen Brick Works, next to the kilns that fired the bricks that built Toronto, 85 skilled and daring riders took on a steep and shrunken velodrome. With speeds reaching 35 km/h, on a track that appeared no larger than a suburban garage, the challenge was not only to set the best time but do so without slamming to the ground.

Johnny “Jet Fuel” Englar, made an appearance (racing a front rack-equipped single speed) as did many other legendary local riders from the days of the Human Powered Rollercoaster. But the big competition was Addison Zawada from Jacksonville, Florida who was also the Montreal mini drome champion.
