Just one week before cycling's mainstream mountain bike media descends on Fort William for the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, many riders are making the trip north sooner. The Single Speed World Championship (SSWC) are slated for this weekend, September 1-2 in Aviemore, Scotland.
Competitive festivities start Saturday, when an event will be held to determine the hosts of the 2008 SSWC. The main action kicks of Sunday morning with the title event. For more information, visit www.sswc2007.com.
Last year's worlds were in Stockholm, Sweden, in mid-August. Sveinung Bjørkøy (Norway) and Tiffany Allmandinger (USA) won the men's and women's divisions.
