After the first few minutes of the roller derby there was already tons of action as girls slammed, checked and tripped each other.
Two girls (one from each team) would start at the back of the pack wearing stars on their helmets making them the Jammers for the team. The Jammers would score points by passing all the blockers. Everyone who wasn’t a Jammer was a Blocker with the mission to stop the Jammers from passing at all costs.
Each pass made by the Jammer earned the team 3 points.
The match up was the Dukebox Heroes (in the white shirts) vs. the Buns & Roses (in the black shirts). Both teams battled hard for the win. The skating rink was their battlefield.
The rules? Well, there aren’t many. Anything goes here.
After seeing flying fists, elbows being thrown, roller skates taken to the thigh and even many more slide tackles the Dukebox Heroes took the win with a final score of 87-81.
We had so much fun shredding this morning that we had to make a short little edit. This is some clips from 2 runs on a Saturday at Gabby’s Morning Rampage session. Be sure to share it with your friends. -Gravity Rider
Held on a hidden road off of the 15 freeway, the SDDRL # 23 race track was a fast and rough course. A few sweepers and a steep chute to the finish that brought some of the fastest riders up to 47 m.p.h. The beginning time or speed trials were held with a gravity start (no pushing) and the fastest speeds advanced. Then racing went to a head on head format. A few neighbors watched and even offered rides back up the hill at some points. Communication between spectators watching the corners and riders ensured a safe day of racing. Thanks to Tye for another great SDDRL event.
