Hot damn, the 2008 Australian Singlespeed Nationals are getting loose in Tasmania!

April 19 & 20 will see two days of bike riding, beer drinking, wild dancing and other rowdy antics hitting Hobart. The pre-race activities will include a BBQ and some sight-seeing riding around the streets and trails of Hobart, before the party truly gets underway. Roller racing, heavy drinking, live music, and general debauchery will be the theme of the evening, designed to see everyone suitably hungover and haggard for the next day's racing.

The race itself will be held in the lovely surrounds of the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park, and anything goes so long as it's got one gear. The less clothing the better!

This is just an early warning shot across the bow, more information as it develops!
