I just came across the event poster for this year’s Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships and felt it was worth sharing:
“Racers searching for their destiny… A tribe of spectators waiting for a hero…
In a race battling to survive, they face Portland determined to rule.”
The racing takes place on November 7-8th. If you’ve missed previous years, you’ll want to put these dates on your calendar, because next year the SSCXWC will travel to a different host city (and, in true SSCXWC style, the 2009 race will help decide who hosts in 2010).
I just love the spirit and fun the organizers bring to this event. Check out some of the verbage from the event website:
This race will be less the traditional test of speed, endurance and technical prowess and more Thunder Dome. Two teams enter, one team leaves. A battle worthy of a song, nay an anthem, powerful enough to revive Tina Turner’s career, convince Mel Gibson to remake the Mad Max episodes, and ultimately propel single speed cyclocross through the apocalypse and into the other side. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… racing time is here.
