The Holgate Brewhouse Single Speed World Championship race will be held in Wombat State Forest on Sunday 23 October. It will go up and down and round and round. It will be single speed friendly and approximately 40 kms in length with various exit points for those who choose not to go the distance.
Bike requirements: You will be required to ride a single speed bicycle at SSWC 2016. We recommend a mountain bike but what you ride is up to you as long as it has only one gear and working brakes. We hear the course is CX friendly(ish) and someone may even be bringing a tandem.
The Tattoo: The male and female winners of SSWC 2016 will each receive a SSWC 2016 tattoo. If you don’t want the tattoo don’t race to win.
Race License: To ride in SSWC 2016 you will need to hold a Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) race license, a UCI international license or purchase a day license for the weekend.
If you have not been a member of MTBA in the last three years we suggest you consider taking up the MTBA free 8 week trial membership (http://www.mtba.asn.au/
If you’re not a MTBA member or not eligible for the MTBA trial membership you will be required to purchase a MTBA day license for the big event. Unfortunately a CA license will not cover you for the event. If you can’t provide proof of your UCI license or MTBA membership – MTBA card or digital membership card – at registration you will be required to purchase a day license.
