I am going to try to enter this bike race at a ski mountain near me. Do you think they will let unicyclist in the race? I was wondering if anyone else wanted to come, then there would be a better chance of them making a unicyclist category.
I race downhill MTB and those corses are really really rough. You’ll probably definetly need a brake. I doubt thAT THEY WOULD HAVE A WHOLE UNI CATEGORY, (i hate that stupid caps lock) but you could just compare times with each other.
races are really fun, and dont get all upset if some guys say uni’ing is dumb. It might be a relly good idea to rent some body armor like chest and elbow pads!
They might be reluctant to have a unicycle enter because you will be so much slower than all the bikes. This may cause time problems in that they cannot space you evenly among the bikers. You would have to go last or something. Anything else and it might not be safe to have you out there with the bikex zooming past.
I think Des from Wales entered some downhill races. By all accounts he’s incredibly fast though. I guess he was last in the category each run.
For a 4-up race obviously you’d need 4 people.
Also it kind of depends on the jumps. If they’re not rollable there’s no way they’ll let you do it. I’ve seen a picture of a race course that had a road gap in it, where you’d need to hit it really fast on a bike to get to the transition.
I am good friends with the guy who hosts the race. He said that if you race you will get 1/2 off the registration price. He also wants you to e-mail him. To get his e-mail, go to sebagooutfitters.com and look for the e-mail adress in the contact information.
Any other people interested? Unicycles are defiantly going to be aloud. It would really be awesome if we could get a whole heat of unicyclist. Is sounds like Jon is going to let me bring some extra unicycles for anyone interested to try. Haven’t you always wanted to ride down the ski runs on you Muni?!
