The Broadway Bomb started in 2000 as a branch off from the Central Park Race. While the Central Park Race was satisfying, many yearned for something more. Ian Nichols and Fred Mahe came up with the idea of a race to skate in trafﬁc and called it the Broadway Bomb. The ﬁrst race was small, only 14 skaters. This year on the tenth anniversary we expect to have over 1000 skaters. This race is the highlight of skater!s whole lives. They train all year for 30 minutes of glory!
