    Our first Singlespeed Race

    About a year ago we initiated the Israeli Singlespeed forum (we call it a virtual community...). Since then the number of members has drastically increased and this last Saturday some of the hard-core guys arranged our very own historical race..

    Course was excellent, Weather perfect, overall of 42 riders with some elite XC pros which spiced up the competition... oh and Unlimited amounts of beer (!!)

    There were two rules:
    1. ride within the lines.
    2. each lap you had an option for a shot of Whiskey/Taquila - if you took it, it would reduce your lap time by 30seconds (not that anyone was interested in the results once the race was over )

    Prize was collected from all participants - it went up to 222$.. in coins
    Second place took some adult movies..
    the rest of the prizes weren't about timing or placing - just good vibes


    Here are some picures and a link to the video clip of the first Israeli Singlespeed race, enjoy

    Clip should be here:

    <object width='400' height='354'><param name='allowFullScreen' value='true' /><param name='movie' value='http://www.pinkbike.com/v/7116' /><embed src='http://www.pinkbike.com/v/7116' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' width='400' height='354' allowFullScreen='true' /></object>
    but if it doesn't work try this link:

    and here are the pics:
    1. me (really bad hair-day)
    2. ET rode home
    3. Nil O. - elite racer - second place
    4 & 5. Chanoch R. - elite racer - first place

    That sounds like a great time you should make it an annual event and invite some strangers.
