ROLLAPALUZA ROLLS ON

Another night of beer-fuelled roller action hits London on Friday, January 30, as the Rollapaluza rigs set up in the Kingpin Suite for a second time following the sell-out success last August.

Multiple World masters champion Dave Le Grys and World masters sprint champion Lee Povey will be spinning their legs off for a share of the usual handsome prize list, while the Rollapaluza DJs will be spinning the discs.
