Denver's first roller derby bout of the season went down on February 6 at the Fillmore Auditorium -- site of today's speech by President Barack Obama. It was a sold-out intra-league face-off between two of the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls' home teams, the Sugar Kill Gang and the Dooms Daisies. The Sugars were victorious.

The Rollergirls are one of two derby leagues in Denver, a situation explored in this week's feature, "Denver's Roller Derby Rivalry Could Start the Sport Rolling Across the Country." And the other league?

It's the Denver Roller Dolls, who will host their first bout at the newly revamped 1stBank Center in Broomfield on March 20. Click here for a full schedule and information on how to buy tickets.
