Singlespeeders: "We don't sign up, we show up."

Those were the words of last year's series champion John Mylne (Niner Bikes/ Ergon) when asked why he wasn't on the start list. Apparently his teammate Dejay Birtch likes to fly under the radar, too, since both plan on making their first showing in the NUE series for 2009 at the Mohican.

Waiting for them with a hood and axe will be this year's Cohutta singlespeed winner, and newcomer to the one-geared class, Gerald Pflug (Speedgoat/SPK/Salsa). Mathew Ferrari (FreezeThaw Bikes) will have one eye on the podium and one on the kegs, and is likely to stand atop both before the night is through.

Stay tuned to Cyclingnews for full coverage of the Mohican 100.
