What is Galaxy Gold Sprints Roller Racing?
Galaxy Gold Sprints is similar to bicycle roller racing. Fixed gear bikes are on attached to front fork stands so that the riders don't have to balance, only pedal as fast as they can. Two Track bikes get hooked up to trainers - the forks lock in the front and the rear wheel spins on rollers. Two participants battle out a pre-defined distance on bicycle rollers connected to a digital timing system at speeds in excess of 20+ miles per hour. Game on!
