Sadly, the Carni-velo has packed up and left town. If you were there, count yourself as one of the lucky ones! This Carni-velo starred you; the entrants. Thanks for maintaining the love and tradition of single speeding. If you haven't seen it already, a great wrap up of the event is found here on Cycling Tips
The World Champs for 2016 are Tad Majdr of Czechoslovakia via NZ and Renata Bucher of Switzerland.

Woodend, Victoria 21 - 23 October 2016
Welcome to the Carni-velo
You’ll be spellbound, on the edge of your seat my friends as you thrill to the risks and rigours of a Festival of the Bike with days of epic single track! You are about to enjoy scenes both thrilling and dangerous. Never before has such tremendous talent been presented on the same programme.
The SS Worlds Carni-velo is in the cause of fun, folks. That’s what the circus represents – a time to laugh. Maybe it’s a smile or a quiet laugh. Perhaps a chuckle. Or why not a good old-fashioned belly-laugh? Without laughter there is no circus. So to bring on those roars, guffaws and squeals of delight – send in the bikes!
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – it’s time for skill, for strength and for sartorial splendor. Roll right up, roll right up - to Woodend! A mere hour from Melbourne and a few turns of the cranks from the dramatic Wombat State Forest.
Sometime over the weekend there will be a mountain bike race! Discover the single tracks deep within the Wombat State Forest and you’ll be spellbound! You'll be on the edge of your seat my friends, as you thrill to the risks and rigours of a Festival of the Bike.
Every Carnivale requires many props. Performers need all sorts of gadgets and gizmos. You, our valued customer, require only one item, just one particular piece of paraphernalia. That’s right, you’ve guessed it. One Gear – Oh! And Beer!
Conveniently Woodend has the bonza little brewery Holgate Brewhouse so on with the show. Yes, they are on board to help us manage the ever-critical need for hydration that elite level, extreme sportspeople like us need.
Exciting, terrifying, fantastic feats will all on display before your very eyes during the SS Worlds. So, come one, come all and bring your one gear bike!
