sRegistration opens for single speed 'cross championships

Posted by Jonathan Maus (Publisher/Editor) on August 26th, 2008 at 9:34 am

The 2nd annual Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships (SSCXWC) have opened for registration.

The event is scheduled for November 8-9 and will take somewhere in or near Portland (awaiting confirmation of exact location).

Dani Dance of the Portland Single Speed Collective and an employee at Portland-based River City Bicycles is the woman behind the race. She put together the first SSCXWC last year and it was a huge success.

Here's a snippet from the event description:

"After months of lengthy conversations with the UCI, the IOC and several Hollywood studios, the SSCXWC is back with a vengeance. The 2008 Single Speed Cyclocross WC (we can't say world championships) converges on Portland once again. While negotiations are still on going as to whether Single Speed Cyclocross racing will replace figure skating in the 2010 Winter Olympics, the promoters are confident that this 2nd running of event will be the decisive nail in the coffin."

This is sure to be a very special event. Stay tuned to the Front Page for more coverage.
