2006 Singlespeed World's set for Stockholm, Sweden

In the unorthodox way that such an decision is made, the Internet is alive with buzz that the site of the 2006 Singlespeed World Championships has been awarded to a group from Stockholm, Sweden. According to Nick Sande of Surly Bicycles, he and Skip Bernet, who placed last in a special derby at the 2005 World Championships used to determine the 2006 selection committee, considered "about sixteen proposals. Most of them were serious, a couple of them worthless, and six of them were good enough to make this a very difficult decision."

For the complete story about the site selection, check out Sande's blog entries on www.surlybikes.com and stay tuned to Cyclingnews for more information about 2006 Singlespeed World's as it develops.
