Friday, 15 July 2011

Tales From The Crit Edition 01 is the first Fixed Gear Criterium race ever organized in Singapore. Organized by a small group of cycling enthusiasts, the race brought together Fixed Gear cyclists from Singapore, Malaysia and even Hong Kong to participate.

Ro Roll Kidul saw an attendance of about 200 people which quickly turned into a riot. Djs Ritz, Dub Skank’in Hifi and Ddrrff dropped heavy beats throughout the night. The crowd was not only hyped up by the Redbull, Steinlager Pure Beer (sponsor: 6 Drunk Men) and the super competitive race but also a raffle which saw the giving out of a whole lot of fantastic prizes graciously provided by our kind sponsors (listed below).
