Rollerburn 2011

Our friends at Sideburn magazine, “the world’s most suave motorcycle magazine”, is organising and promoting a one-off, cross-genre event that they reckon will to “go down in history”.

Hold on to your whiskers folks and prepare for the hairiest bike event of the 2011. Rollerburn, according to the dirty-left turning Sideburn crew who are creating such a thing, will be “a festival of two-wheeled death traps and roller derby vixens”.

On Saturday 19 November 2011, at Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire the staff of the cult magazine will host nine hours of “family entertainment” (!) incorporating a full roller derby match, followed by the world’s first (and probably last) Indoor Rollerball drag race: three lightning fast racers riding three motorcycles towing three fearless roller girls. One winner.

One of the confirmed racers is Guy Martin, arguably Britain’s favourite bike racer, Isle of Man TT hero, star of TT 3D – Closer to the Edge and the BBC primetime series – The Boat That Guy Built. His attendance guarantees a sell-out crowd.

In addition there will be an invite-only custom show of the finest custom bikes; live sets from a bunch of bands, flat track demos, DJs, food and drink stalls and loads more.

You either get it or you don’t. We suggest you turn up either way to see what all the fuss is about.
