Yesterday we caught up with three-time SSCXWC winner and 2015 co-promoter Drew MacKenzie, who gave some insight into what’s in store for racers of this year’s event in Victoria, BC, Canada.
Sound like a fun weekend? It’s not too late to plan at trip, even if you don’t own a dedicated singlespeed. Full 2015 SSCXWC details in the press release below.
There are just two weeks to go to the 2015 Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships, taking place in Victoria, BC, Canada between 21-22 November.
Approximately 250 athletes from possibly more than two nations are expected to compete in the British Columbia capital later this month.
Many of the Union Cyclist International’s 214 member federations have already named their teams for the most important sporting event on this year’s calendar, but with the final entry deadline at 11:00 PM (PST) on Thursday, November 19th, 2015, this coming weekend is the last chance for many “athletes” to get their acts together and actually register for the big show.
The USA and Canada have yet to formally name their teams but it is already known that The World Champion Hodala Bicycle Racing Team has named their “team” and global champions such as Adam Craig, Ben Berden, Aaron Bradford, Mical Dyck and Nicole Duke have all decided they might as well show up.
Russia has named their 0-strong team in the wake of their national odnoskorostnyye championships of the velokross earlier this week while cyclocross power houses Kenya and Ethiopia have also named their teams early and can expect to feature absolutely no one.
The ITU website does not have a special section devoted to the championships, however coverage of the SSCXWC2015 via Cyclocross Magazine will eventually include questionably accurate results, previews, reports, features and extensive coverage on social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook.
Online registration is only open for nine more days.
Entry fee gets you three days of rides, races, and parties.
In addition to entry into the main event, Americans racers receive a 25% country-wide discount on everything, courtesy of the terrible performance of the Canadian Peso.
