The first ever Olathe Subaru Cycle Fest is tomorrow afternoon from 3-6pm at the Olathe Subaru dealership. This event takes place a week before local road racing kicks off here in the KC area and is an opportunity for the community to get together and enjoy some good food and friendly competition before our weekends are filled with traveling to races.
For those who aren’t familiar with roller racing, there will be two single speed bikes set up on stationary rollers with the front of the bike fixed in place. Two people will battle head-to-head over a distance of 300m in a true test of leg speed.
The event will be set up as a tournament. Signups will begin at 3pm and the tournament will go from 4pm-6pm. There will be a qualifying round, with the knock out rounds following. Consolation and open rounds will take place between knock out rounds as the competition nears the end, to provide everyone adequate time to recover.
In addition to the roller racing, we will have some delicious food provided by Dickey’s Barbecue Pit! We’ll also have a donation jar out that will go towards the GP VeloTek junior’s team to help out with entry fees at select races this season!

We hope to see you all there!
