Wyoming’s Baddest Babes Set For Battle at 2016 Roller Derby Cup
This weekend, some of the baddest babes in the Cowboy State will battle for the 2016 Wyoming Roller Derby Cup.
The event, now in its third year, is a two-day tournament held at the Riley Ice Arena and Events Center in Cody.
The two-time defending state champion Cheyenne Capidolls will be challenged by six teams from around the state, including the A'Salt Creek Roller Girls from Casper, the Jackson Hole Juggernauts, the Bittersweet Bombshells from Rock Springs, Heart Mountain Wreck on Wheels from Powell, the Powder River Rousta Bout It Betties from Gillette and the Rawlins Pen-Up Girlz.
According to Mercury, the founder and President of the Wyoming Roller Derby Association, the event was created to bring roller derby players and fans across the state together.
This year's WYO Cup will also be a fundraiser for one of their fallen sisters. All proceeds will be donated to the family of Pixie Tourette, a member of the Jackson Hole Juggernauts, who passed away last week.
In addition to crowning a state champion, the Wyoming Roller Derby Association is also putting together an all-star team which will compete in the national State Wars Roller Derby tournament in December.
