    SSWC 2007 entries

    As the time draws nigh

    O soul, we have positively appear'd--that is enough. ~ Walt Whitman


    The entries for the singlespeed world championships 2007 will be open on Sunday first April 1st from 00:01 (british summer time - BST).

    Places will be limited only if interest is extremely high. Don't fret, most if not all, will get in.

    Entry will be through a paypal account.

    The full instructions will appear on www.sswc2007.com from March 31st (evening) BST. Follow them and all should be well.

    The cost will be 25 (uk pounds). We had to raise the entry cost slightly, but the race will be non-profit and if there is any extra we promise to buy a round at the bar. Hope this is ok.


    We would like to take the chance to thank all the sponsors for being so generous:

    What's the likelihood of spots opening up? I had no idea this would fill so quickly!

    Hum...just a question that comes to my mind : how comes that this event has a closed number of riders ?
    Last year there was no limitations (as far as I know)...is that Singlespeed Spirit ?

    I don't really get it so if some of you could just give a decent explanation...

    a valid point, but at some point there is a limit to the number of riders a race course will bear, even at the extremes of definition in terms of racing that the sswc suggests.

    feel free to pitch up lend a hand and drink beer.

    ok?
