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)

Sscxwc '10

Anyone from here going to this in Seattle? I'm driving up from Cali for it but I would love to get some intel about the race course and conditions.

i want to race in the cat 4 race in the morning.

whether i do that or not i'm definitely going to watch the wc. how many crosses have you done? if i were you i'd just practice as much as you can on grass and mud. they're sure to throw in some surprises but for the most part you aren't going to gain more than a place or two by asking anyone on here.

I should have clarified. I know as much as I will about the course and qualifier on Sat so I'm fine with the intel. I was checking if other here where doing the race.

I'm a master 35+ B (cat 4) racer now so I know what I'm in for. I'm looking forward to racing in much sloppier conditions than I do in Cali.

i'm pretty sure even our dry days are sloppier than sacto.

there are lots of people i know that will race the championship but not many of them are on bike forums to my knowledge.

Yeah it should be fun. I'll be on a white Cannondale and in a Team Beer kit. If I don't qualify for the WC race i'll be in the SS race probably at the rear of the group.
