We thank you, that by you already announcing (reporting) this extraordinary event of a not yet well known form of sport but all the more attractive form of sport you are drawing attention to it and are allowing the unicycle sport to become more noticed.

Thanks for sorting the translation Gilby.

Just a little comment about publisty and translations. Please avoid PDF format, it can not be just plugged in to the majority translation programmes. HTML, Doc, text or almost any others you can steal the text.



While you cannot (easily) edit a pdf file, it is possible to get the text out of a pdf file. In Adobe Reader 6 I think there is a button for it. In Adobe Reader 5, press your keyboard V and the cursor changes so that you can copy and paste text, into a translator if so desired. Thought I should mention that. Similarly, BTW, if you press G, you can copy graphics from a pdf file.

Ciao tutti,

the initial version of the Unicon XIII homepage has gone online:

Unicon XIII & World Championships 2006 in Langenthal, Switzerland

I would really appreciate, if you could link to that page from your sites
as to attract as many participants as possible.

Hasta luego,


I forgot to mention that our initial version is in German only.

In the near future though, an english and maybe even a
japanese translation will be available as well.


What airport do you fly into, to get to Langenthal?

I wonder if unicon will come to British Columbia
