Details for the 2006 singlespeed world championships were posted online this week.

Scheduled for August 19-20 in Stockholm, the Capitol of Sweden, the exact course location (as well as the rules of competition which, in true singlespeed worlds form will be anything but the first person across the finish line in the race is the winner) is being kept secret until the day of the race.

What has been announced is that the event will be centered out of an establishment called Street. According to promoters, "Street is a bar/event place/gallery for street art, contemporary design and art, and all other forms of modern cultural activities in a big city and it will also be the hub for the race, where we meet, hang in the bar, meet all the new faces, where we hook up guided rides to the trails and where we consume our cold post ride beers in the evening sun at the waterfront."

Registration will be available through an online auction. Information about hotel, camping and hostel accommodations are also listed on the site.

For more information, including details about the pending registration auction, visit the promoter's Web site at www.sswc06.com.
