This is a mountain bike race in central Virginia on the 21st and 22nd of August. I heard from a few friends who did the same race last year that there were a couple guys racing on unicycles. any of you guys on here? there isn’t a category for unicycles listed either on the regular site nor the registration site. i plan on participating in it, but i’m not sure if i’ll do it on my mountain bike or my KH24. i guess i’d be more likely to do it on the uni if i knew other people would be muining it.
i’ll also be posting this to the DCuni mailing list later today.
The riders last year were myself and James Amon (siafirede). My coworker’s dad founded the race. It was a pretty awesome time. We got a cash prize just for showing up on unicycles (not sure if they’ll keep that up though). Unfortunately I won’t be able to ride it this year, but if you do we should grab a beer or something.
Can you send me some of the pictues from the event? I think I only saw like one unicycle picture.
The 36 and 29 were both mine =]
The 29 was the best for the course in my opinion, but Frank said he enjoyed the course a lot more on his 24 (probably because he never really used a 29er offroad before this event). Go with what you use offroad the most.
The 36 was mostly for fun the first lap, and I did set the record lap out of Frank and me on the 36, but it was sure exhausting to use. I probably wouldn’t recommend using it.
