Keirin returns in 2013, with all the above features and Keirin is now officially an international event, with a number of foreign riders lined up plus British champions, sprinters and club riders from around the UK, keen to take on this rare opportunity to race against the best at the historic Herne Hill track in London, a track almost identical in dimensions to the Keirin tracks in Japan from where this discipline originates.

Rollapaluza have put up a £1000 cash purse for the main event.

Female and Novice racing too!

Continuing Rollapaluza’s policy of inclusion novices also get to race at the same meeting as the elite riders, some of the most exciting racing last year was in this category. There is also a female category won last year by Rachel James. There are still a few places left in these two categories and it is not too late to sign up here.
