Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Any formal/sanctioned fixed rides?

I'm talking about sanctioned crit and road races, but exclusively for fixed gear bikes. Not track races in a velodrome; not local alleycats, etc.

Do these exist?

We have some in arizona that are sponsored by local bike shops, energy drinks, and clothing companies, is that the kind of thing you are talking about?
