FRIDAY 13TH HORRORSPRINTS! CMWC Launch and Fundraising Party!


ROLLER RACING STRAIGHT OUTTA THE BOWELS OF HELL!

The 23rd Cycle Messenger World Championships present our final fundraising event before the official CMWC shebang kicks off on the Easter Weekend.

HORRORSPRINTS is a night of Goldsprints-style roller racing mayhem guaranteed to scare you straight. A fixed front wheel on the roller bikes means you don’t have to worry about balancing, just get up there and go go go.

There’ll be sweat, speed and slight psychosis. Pit yourself against Melbourne’s fastest and bring your friends so you’ve got someone to hold you afterwards as you cry.

Melbourne District Messenger Association house band, DICK PURPLE will be thrashing out a live soundtrack of classic metal tunes to flog yourself to!


Our brand spanking new race bikes have been built by the blessed hands of Dan at SHIFTER BIKES.

Prizes provided by KRYPTONITE LOCKS and CRUEX CLOTHING

Criminally refreshing BICYCLE BEER by Temple Brewing Company will be available at super friendly prices.


$20 for racers. Get down early to register if you want to race, limited spots available.

Donation entry for spectators.

Prizes for best Friday the 13th themed costume.

Heckling, side bets and Norwegian style black metal facepaint very much encouraged.

Rum rules apply.
