TEAR IN MY EYE!…… Not really, but I’m really really reeeeeeaaaally excited. The movie may be before your time but it’s definitely an excellent classic. I myself was 4 years old at the time. For those of you who do not know this movie, go to http://www.letmewatchthis.com and look up The Warriors…….Enjoy.

The Warriors are reborn on the streets of NYC!!!

This team races requires strategy as well as athleticism. One team claims the prize only if they cross the finish line together. With optional routes and individual strengths, this race will prove to be as interesting and challenging as our beloved Broadway Bomb. This race will require the ULTIMATE team effort! RAT ROD is super stoked, our little whiskers are twitching with anticipation Thanks to D for initiating this.

Team racing is the future of NYC skating.
