Registration open for singlespeed worlds

Organizers have opened registration for the Singlespeed World Mountain Bike Championships to be held September 16-20 in Durango, Colorado.

The championship race will take place on Saturday, September 19, one day prior to the Tour of Durango. Racers in the worlds race will cover one big, timed loop all over the Durango area, but the non-competitive Tour of Durango will not be timed.

Entries in worlds are open to 500 total racers, and all women will be guaranteed a spot if their entries are postmarked before January 23. Anyone who received the approximately 143 randomly distributed spoke cards at the 2008 Singlespeed Mountain Bike World Championships in Napa, California, is also guaranteed entries as are past winners and those who submit a singlespeed-related film for the 1X1 Film Festival. Everyone else will have to participate in the coloring contest and hope for the best.
