Single Speed World Championships

The Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships fire into action this weekend at Golden Gate Park.

Single Speed Cross racing takes center stage in Nor-Cal this weekend...

The 2010 Single Speed Cyclocross World Champions share
the podium in the photo below.
You win the Single Speed World Crown and your in for some serious fun...

The Single Speed World's are very popular as you can see from the photo below at a previous S.S. World Championship.  Golden Gate park will be raging!...

Expect to see many scenes such as the one below this weekend in Golden Gate park, only more hardcore!
after all it is San Francisco...

Part of the tradition for winning the Single Speed World Championship is getting a tattoo inscribing tribute to your victory on your body forever. 
Want to see one up close?
Just ask Nor-Cal Cross legend Stella Carey,
a past World S.S. Champion to show you her's.
Below past champion Adam Craig shows off his fine artwork for
 being Single Speed king...

I expect to see tremendous rides from the on form Northern California racers who will be in search of the coveted World Champion Single Speed crown.
Bay101/HRS/Rock Lobster racers and Stella Carey & Aaron Bradford have both tasted huge success in the Single Speed racing realm, and I hoping that those two, as well as other Nor-Cal fast Women & Men play leading roles in the action that is sure to be super crazy in San Francisco.
I would like to personally congratulate all the folks behind the scenes in bringing this un-offical Cyclocross World Championship race to Nor-Cal!

Tom & Alec Simpson's Bay Area Super Prestige night race gets some awesome aerial view coverage thanks to Go Pro. 
Helicopter camera's are so cool, and a night race is extra special to watch from the air...!

Please remember that the NCNCA/USA Cycling State Championships will take place on December 4th at Toro park, near Salinas. 
The NCNCA will be awarding all State Championship winners jersey's
that same day at no cost to the riders as a extra bonus to the
Cyclocross community of Northern California. 
The NCNCA is proud to provide & award California State Champions jersey's to the best and most dedicated Cross racing region of America!  This event takes place one month before USA Cycling National Championships and is guaranteed to be one of the most competitive races of the Nor-Cal Cross season!

Next weekend is the Bay Area Super Prestige race at the ever popular Golden Gate Park course.  I can not wait to see the Go Pro helicopter get some race footage while dodging the beautiful trees that line the Golden Gate park Cyclocross course. 

Also next weekend is race #1 of the Santa Rosa Cup.

This Saturday is race #6 of the Sacramento Series taking place at Howard Park in Ione.
