Montreal Roller Derby’s La Racaille is a gang of shit-disturbing street punks on wheels. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, they banded together to terrorize the town, wreak havoc in back alleyways, and FIGHT THE POWER. Theyíve been through hell and back, greasing their wheels with toxic chemicals, strapping scrap tires to their skates for protection against needles and broken glass, and brandishing lead pipes and a booty block for anyone who gets in their way. ?They are untamed, sexy, street-wise chicks, faster than lightning and itching to kick some ass. Beware!
