Spring is in the air, which means weâ€™re only 1 more season in the way of the best seasonâ€¦Cross Season. With this in mind theÂ Washington United Single Speeders, LLC and Low Pressure Promotions, LLC are ready to announce the 2010 dates for the first non-PDX version of the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championship in Seattle, WA. The main event will take place Sunday October 24, 2010 at Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA and is being presented by Pabst Blue Ribbon, Stanley, a brand of PMI, and Raleigh America.
Returning this year is the qualifier event starting Saturday morning, October 23, 2010. This means we will be limiting the number of participants in the World Championships main event. So the qualifier is mandatory in order to secure a spot in the race on Sunday October 24th. We will be offering â€œrepechageâ€ opportunities during the many events planned on Saturday. Winning the MFG SS race earlier on Sunday will be the final qualifier. Times and locations for the qualifier events will be announced as the event approaches.
Online registration opens June 1, 2010 and will be posted on both the MFG Cyclocross and SSCXWC websites. The first 50 pre-registered racers will receive a limited edition SSCXWC t-shirt,Â SSCXWC/Stanley mug, and a custom handmade number from Seattle bag maker Dank Bags. While not everyone will get to race in the World Championships, everyone who registers will be allowed to race in the MFG Series SS race. This guarantees
everyone the opportunity to get their race on.
