Talking with Dani Dance, founder of the Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championships of course got as talking about the racing, mayhem and general good times at the SSCXWC races over the years. And, of course, all of that talk sent us down a rabbit hole of race videos and photos of the event from years past.

For this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re taking a look at the 2008 SSCXWC race.

In the video below, posted to YouTube by Allenink in November of 2008, you can see the infamous foam pit, a drum line, speedo-clad racers, a pink Spider-Man, a sit-up contest, you know, a typical World Championship race.

Enjoy the look back and start planning your trip to Portland for the 10th anniversary race.
