We had a great time at the Single Speed World champs, what a great bunch of guys, they really made us welcome and the racing both off road and on rollers was ace…definitely worth the 22 hours driving!

What a difference it was to set up the rig with a backdrop of mountains, pine forests and lochs….a real change to the boozy bar-rooms of London.

Single speeders really took to the challenge of the Roller Race  and in the  knockout rounds Nigel and James both managed to beat riders who qualified faster than them before facing each other for the double-distance final.  They were so close but James gave up and Nigel sailed to the win….it didn’t look easy though…rather rudely instead of congratulating the winner I shouted at Caspar ….”Oh my God look at his face, you gotta get a picture of that!”….and he did, check out our pictures.

Due to a slight technical error and both Jack and Pippa running away from another round of Rolla torture, the Ladies Final saw Emily and Kira battle it out, with Kira clearly taking the win.

The Roller rig was used in a strange, secret ceremony involving roller-racing, whisky drinking and Highland Flinging in order to decide where the SSWC will be held next year, but I’ve probaly said too much already….well done Napa.

The next day we got to try the course and watch the main race….Wow what a course! I managed a whole lap! The winners completed five and were they fast? yes.
