Mississippi Valley Mayhem (MVM) will host four bouts Saturday and Sunday July 13-14, 2019 at the Onalaska Omni Center. “1,000 Miles of Roller Derby,” so named for the collective number of miles teams are travelling to the LaCrosse area, features roller derby leagues from four northern states. Twitch, 10-year MVM veteran and Interleague Director explains, “Four bouts, 3 visiting teams, 2 days of epic action! We’ve never done anything like this before.”
MVM plays MedCity Mafia of Rochester, MN at 7:30 pm on Saturday, and the Bisman Bombshellz of Bismark, ND at 11:00 am on Sunday. Doors open at 5 pm on Saturday and 8:3o am Sunday, with Dead River Derby (DRD) of Marquette, MI taking on Bisman at 5:30 Saturday night and MedCity at 9 am Sunday.
This is the first matchup between neighboring rivals MVM and MedCity in over three years, and an exciting new opportunity to play teams from North Dakota and Michigan. All four teams play in Division 3 of the Women’s Flat Track Toller Derby Association, and began the season very close in rankings. This weekend marks the end of the 2019 season for both MVM and MedCity, while Bisman and DRD have seasons running through September. MVM will be boasting a full roster, including Blazin’ Betty coming off the disabled list as a blocker in time to end Season 11, and coach Lightning Thrash taking the track against her former teammates.
As a non-profit organization, MVM is proud to donate 30% of our ticket sales to community partners. The featured community beneficiary for July is New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers
