    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.

    Well, you know where you can get more beer, at last if Elayna gets her way.

    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.
