Cyclocross Magazine is thrilled to be the first to announce the launch of the new website for the new venue for Single Speed Cyclocross Worlds.
Are you ready for Singlespeed Cyclocross Worlds? A year ago, San Francisco locals battled it out in Seattle for the rights to host the prestigious and raucous affair in the city by the bay. Rising victoriously amidst the barrier-hopping, costume-wearing and beer-guzzling, the date and venue has now been set for this year’s event. Needing no introduction, the famed Golden Gate Park will welcome racers as they compete for the title of Singlespeed Cyclocross World Champion (SSCXWC) during the weekend of November 18-20, 2011. With title sponsor Sheila Moon Athletic Apparel and well-known local race promoter Murphy Mack — responsible for West Coast GoldSprints and the multi-terrain SF Enduro — throwing their weight and considerable expertise into the occasion, the pair promises to make the three day event a weekend unmatched by the race’s previous host cities. Details are still being finalized.
More details — including the registration date — to be announced soon! Visit the website today and check back often for the registration date announcement — reg spots will disappear faster than a case of PBR at a cyclocross race. And that’s fast.
Sheila Moon says “This shi-at is gonna sell out! You had better check our site everyday for the reg opening announcement or you’re going to be a sad panda!”
Winner: San Francisco.
