Ok, I realise this is a bit of a long shot for a lot of you but there are over 1050 people entered in this years Single Speed championship so I guessed there might be somebody else off here turning up for the event...

Maybe I am mad after all :?

I will be in town from Thursday evening, got to check out the first part of the bid process for next years event, currently looks like Ireland but anything could change

Anyway chances are I'll be drunk but that doesn't thin it out really, I'll also be wearing a very early Pace T'shirt given to me by Duncan, so if you see me, pop along and say hello, you never know I might even buy you a beer if I have any money left :)

Course ridden, it's great, fast and flowy will loads of short sharp rises

Monster climb to start with, to break down the 1000 riders then into a nice little slightly technical descent and then out onto a long fire road section before diving into narrow twisty single track through a Big Redwood/rain forest terrain

Probably the least techincal SSWC trail I have ridden but my "lap time" seemed to be around 1 1/2 hrs, like it matters :wink:

Party night tonight then "big ride" day tomorrow, off to crack a beer and see how gets next years event :)
