Following a weekend of debauchery including some bike riding, the Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships went off this past Sunday in Philadelphia. Qualifiers for spots in the men’s and women’s race categories included the previous day’s Bilenky Junkyard Cross, a locals led “feats of strength” ride, or last-chance goldsprints. The football fans in the audience may be familiar with how the weather turned in Philadelphia that afternoon, dumping some 2-3 inches of snow on the course in a couple of hours. The 11am “Everyone’s a Winner” category started with clear skies and wet trails, ending but 45 minutes later in heavy snow. By the time the men’s and women’s classes was hitting the course it was just short of a whiteout, with the women getting the worst of it. It all led to a party in the woods with some bike racing happening in between. The top competitive finishers were taking things seriously to turn the laps they did, it’s just that most everyone else on the course was more than happy to embrace the loose rules and heavy heckling in the name of a party. Adam Craig and Vikki Barclay took home the championship tattoos, everyone else went home a winner. Next year it’s Louisville.
