    Woohoo!

    Scotlands easier to get to for me Ideal for people making a longer trip to fly into London (over rated IMHO) and make a road trip of it and see a bit of this soggy country

    See you there in '07

    Aaah, I can see it now! A ferry to New Castle, and then ride in the last bit!
    I did that before, and it was lovely, even if we had the worst weather even the locals had ever seen.
    Should be a low-gear track again, in Scotland?

    Tjena!

    Nothing yet, but I pretty sure Singetrackworld will come up with something soon.

    Sveinung is a wery nice guy, so strong and technically skilled, that he really deserves this great title.

    Love the mustasje!

    Dang. Sweden roolz. To paraphrase Rollins, this SSWC was the "best one yet." The track was 24k of rock, rock, roots, more rock, some mud. a mandatory beer stop, then more root, rocks, rocks, roots, and beer. Don't even get me started on the beautiful people, the beautiful city... I'm depressed just thinking about it.

    It's not Borat, but Earl from "My name is ..." ;-). He's bloody fast too!

    Heard that Jackie got bitten in the thigh by a Rottweiler on Sunday, hope she's OK.

    Someone who will remain nameless for now took a dive out of a bar window on that evening too and has the scalp scar to prove it ...

    Great four days. Unbelievable trails - some reminded me of Moab. Girls on bikes everywhere in town. Had seen Stockholm in winter snow, but in summer it is even nicer.

    More laid-back singlespeeders than I'd ever seen. Few beers before the race and lots after. Thanks for the discount on the Tshirt Hurl

    It wasn't a Rottweiler, it was a Pit Bull. Beautiful animal with an overdeveloped protective instinct, wearing a body harness but not leashed. Jacquie will doubtless have something writted up about it before too long, but she was walking without a noticeable limp within 30 minutes and seemed to be doing fine the next day as well. She could no doubt had ridden back with us, but we made her ride in the ambulance to the emergency room to have the wounds properly cleaned and documented and to get some antibiotics.

    Sveinung made it into Norway's biggest tabloid. The headline goes "World champion marked for life". I guess his bachelor days are over now...

    Btw, for those of you who try to reach the SSWC06 forum, the server has obviously pooed itself and will be down for about a week.

    Actually I believe that it is a Charlie-designed, Steve Potts-welded Phoenix. Nicely done, but it weighed like old steel to my hands. The slow-release hubs were really slick, and the pump inside the seatpost was another trick that should have made the big time, but the 110mm front hub spacing made it a bit difficult to keep it safely mounted on my extracycle when I hauled it back into town. Had to bungee it down to the rack to hold it in place.

    SS Worlds, the course, the city and the people were fantastic! Really, really glad that we came up. Love the fact that the Norwegian with the Porn 'Stache won. Got to love the irony.

    Thanks guys for the great weekend.

    MTBRacer has put together a nice video of SSWC06:

    http://mtbracer.free.fr/video/sswc.htm

    The Paul Smith outfit is in the video, but I can't remember the guy's name. Tobias might know. Gary had a similar outfit and 29'er in white when he did 08XC a few years ago.

    so, where's all the pics and info?

    Okay, so we know that the "official" site's down... where do I find the unofficial info, pix, rundown, etc? Last year and the year before, this site was running amok with linkage, pix, etc. This year, deafeningly quiet. WTF? No mention even of the female winner yet. She's American, she's from Southern California, she apparently taught Marla Streb how to surf... did anybody take any pictures of the race? It's oh so quiet... shh... shh....

    Here's another article about Sveinung, this time on the website of Norway's biggest morning paper:
    http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ir...cle1440743.ece
    There's a nice video along side the article as well. If you don't understand norwegian, I can tell you that according to my norwegian-hungarian dictionary, he's talking about small furry animals getting caught in the chain (here, here and here) and how his grandma fed him baby seals stuffed with oat meal when he was a kid and how that made his moustache grow to the impressing size and fullness it has today.

    With the volume up a bit I can finally hear what the reporter is asking him when he laughs, and this is, now according to my norwegian-english dictionary:
    -Do you often hear people say you look like Nicholas Cage?
    -All the time!

    Female results:

    1. Tiffany Allmandinger, Goleta (If I remember correctly) California
    Tattoo location - left hip. Nice practical choice in that it can easily be covered by many types of fashionable swimwear (except for thongs and tangas) during modeling shoots and such, but can also be shown off when necessary without breaking any laws and with only mildly scandalous reactions from church ladies who may be present. From what I've been able to glean from the net it seems that Tiffany finished 4th in the SS class at Sea Otter this year. Those who know more about her should feel free to fill in more personal details here. The fact that she resides in the same state as Curtis Inglis will facilitate communication during the planning and construction of the custom Retrotec frame that she won.

    2. Alison Rushton, Lancashire, England
    Former SSWC champion, tattoo location not disclosed during our brief encounter (respective spouses were present, but even so asking about tattoos is not typically not one of my opening lines.) In addition to being fast enough to finish on the podium at least twice at SSWC, Alison somehow manages to seem pleasantly perky following a tough race without being annoyingly so. She (as well as Buck, last year's winner who finished second this year) will be getting a new SS hubset from Phil Wood. She chose the HDK500 and HDK535 Disc Hubs, 32 spokes, bolted in the rear.

    3. Johanna (JoJo) Reeder, Sundsvall, Sweden
    JoJo is a local legend who has several World Messenger Championships to her credit, including being fastest fixie at one event, beating all of the guys. Previous SS credits include being fastest female at the Swedish SS race in Hellas (different course) 2 years ago, and winning the solo class at a rainy Sleepless in Rudan (wonderful 24 hour race just south of Stockholm) in 2005. JoJo should have received the Paul Component Engineering WORD hub (3rd prize) by now.

    4. Jacquie Phelan
    If anybody at the race requires no further presentation, it is JP. I'm pretty sure that she had won national and world championships by the time any of the previous ladies had been born. Heck, the bike that she rode was probably welded before they were out of diapers. I'm not sure that any of the first 3 girls could have been as fast if they had been forced to ride in a bustier, on a bike with drop bars, rigid forks and equal weight as compared to the legendary pink Phoenix. I really don't think that Charlie had this particular type of course in mind when he drew up that bike.
