12 January 2009 - 0:50Single Speed Worlds 2009 – Here we come!
This will be held in Durango in September, and I’M GOING!
I sent my registration off early last week, eager to get in before the 500 spots filled up. Last year’s race was full in about 4 minutes, registration was online at like 2am on New Year’s Day. This time around, you had to print off and color in the “application”, which I thought was very creative. Any medium is acceptable, and I chose to use some of Keiran’s crayons, and some really creepy stickers we had kicking around.
The race is open to 500 male racers, and any female wishing to attend. Mandy was guaranteed a spot, and I was a bit nervous about not getting in, based on how quickly it filled up last year. Turns out the analog quality of having to actually print, color and mail in your registration has caught the procrastinators out. Not quite as easy as clicking a button eh?
The cut off is January 23rd, and as of right now, there are only about 160 on the start list. If you are thinking about it, get your registration in now!
So Bike 29 will be headed to Durango! And also on the start list is our own Mike Maggs. Waterbury will be well represented.
I guess I better start training.
Monday is “Man Day“, so my official training will begin on Tuesday. Just what is Man Day? I’ll have an update tomorrow.
