The Red Bull Mini Drome is coming back to Brooklyn. This time it will be taking over the Masonic Temple on June 27th. The event info is below, and I can tell you from experience: get there early or risk not getting in. You can also check out my photos from the last Brooklyn Mini Drome in an abandoned Bushwick church.
On Friday, June 27, Red Bull Mini Drome will make its triumphant return to Brooklyn where top fixed gear cyclists from across the five boroughs and beyond will compete on a shrunken velodrome that measures about the length, width and height of a New York City subway car.
Although it’s only in its second year in New York, this unique high octane race has quickly become a top cycling competition on the east coast bringing speed, balance and bravado together on a steep and shrunken velodrome, custom constructed to give competitors a treacherous challenge. Riders will reach speeds of 25 mph forcing them to test their mental stamina, technical precision and raw strength.
Fifty teams of two riders have been invited to participate in this pinnacle fixed gear competition. Each rider will clock in heats of ten laps with the top eight combined team times advancing. The night will culminate in a showdown bracket of the top eight teams with one squad being crowned the 2014 Red Bull Mini Drome victors. There will also be an individual competition with riders going head-to-head with the better time advancing.
