Adam Craig and Kellie Emmet took the top spots. Good on ya. Way to harden the fuck up.
Promoted by Mountain Mayhem stalwarts, the Telly Savalas Players’ Club, this year’s SSWC took place around Aviemore, complete with hour-long ride out to the race venue, a long LeMans start and what many riders considered to be the best cross country course they’d ever raced on.
Of the 200 or so singlespeeders who raced, were some top names, some fancy dress and some racers from as far away as Australia, the US, Canada, India and Brighton.
Amid a few days of riding, the Saturday evening saw the ‘decider’ event take place to determine where NEXT year’s SSWC would be – this took the form of a roller-race (courtesy of Rollapalooza) followed by a drink of foul smelling cocktail and an interpretation of Scottish dancing.
The winner of this event was Curtis Inglis from Napa, California, who will be hosting the 2008 event.
I’ll post more stories as they arrive.
You heard it: Next years event will be in Napa, California. Since I can drive to it, I’ll be there. I do love cars you know.by
