Steady Rollin’ and Auckland’s fixed gear scene don’t sleep. For the second year in a row they are dropping the madness that is All Track over Easter weekend. Replacing last year’s insane Eye in the Sky is the Red Bull Mini Drome. The Oxford Dictionary has defined explanations for these two words: “Mini” meaning: “very small version of its kind” “Drome” meaning: “a place for running or racing.”
This sums up the idea of the project for Red Bull Mini Drome. The aim is to shrink a cycling velodrome to the smallest possible size while maintaining raceworthy dimensions to enable single timed races, and the treacherous two person pursuit. Not only that, we are going to build it inside a nightclub so people can look down from the mezzanine level and watch the spinning madness below.
The Mini Drome will be 7m wide and 13m long and 3m high at each end and made of plywood.
The Studio at 340 Karangahape Road will be transformed on Easter Sunday the 4th of April.
Street fixed gear riders and track racing guns alike can come and race each other pit their skills to see who will be the champion.
Racers will be able to enter for free on the door, spectators can pay a paltry $10 cover and watch the mayhem and enjoy the after party featuring Shotgun Alley rocking the stage.
