Unicross Championship Race Video

Hope ya’all don’t mind the duplicate post but I just put up a Unicross race video at my site - crankmychain.com. Permalink here


CrankMyChain! Cycle TV

Yeah, this guy is Doper the banned user. O yeah and you cant call it world championships if the IUF isnt involved.

…just needed a spot to host this for later…ill be on later to post homework to printwhen i get home too.

Check your facts

My name ain’t Doper, never was. It’s Dan Kaufman and I make cycling videos.

“The World Championship of Unicross” is, in fact, what it was called.

Your point is taken though, the race was not IUF sanctioned and I mention this in the video. But, correct me if I am wrong, I am not aware that there is a Unicross governing body.

Big picture; I think the event is good for sport unicycling.

Well this guy made a thread in RSU a while ago and it sounded like he was incharge of it. Then he got banned and made an account called pdxan. Sound farmiliar?

I like your last name. Sounds cool. =p

As far as I know, we do have other championship races, but not one set up for unicross yet. Cyclecross is like DH combined with trials. Because the trail, usually has obstacles to get over and to use.

For unicross it would be like Muni and trials combined.

Hmm, maybe we can incorporate unicross races into this years NAUCC.

I know they are still planning it out cause they don’t even have a street event in their yet, so we could fit in unicross too. If not this year, it will be something for next years. =p

As you said, it is good for unicycling, as a sport. We don’t get much coverage, and when we do, like we did here, its always gonna be good.

so how many people ended up coming the the “world championship”?

Godito, There were 5 unicyclists and several hundred people watched.

Great ideas, Jerrick, you have a constructive attitude and approach. FYI, cyclocross racing is supposed to include approximately 1/3 road, 1/3 grass and 1/3 single-track off-road type paths. There is also supposed be a certain amount of barriers that require a racer to dismount and carry their cycle. For Unicross I think you would want to have some sort of requirements on how long you could stay off the unicycle or points for making barriers without falling off.

I also think it makes sense to keep this Unicross concept tied to cyclocross events because it is good for both sports from a marketing and/or spectacle standpoint and since the courses are already being built unicyclists might as well take advantage.

Whatever, Maximus… my profile and contact information are an open book and you are welcome to come admisister a lie dectector test.

But, alas, it is of no real significance. Is it?

Other than the fact that Doper (you) had a picture of pills in your avatar. And that in your profile your user picture advertises beer. I mean seriously, this is supposed to be a family friendly community. I hapen to be 12 and i know of plenty other young people that use this site. Anyway, I dont want to stoop down to your level, so ill end this post now.

Wow…so you are saying since you are 12 you can’t handle looking at a picture of someone holding beer?

No im not. Im just saying that it’s not exactly appropriote to be putting something like that up on a “family friendly” forum.

Your sig has the word " Nipples " In it, I consider this profane language. Please remove it and stop corrupting kids on this forum with these horrible words.

Oh nooooooo, my virgin ears!

gasp! your avatar is truly offensive, remove it asap.

Speaking of which…

Oh evan, Your avatar contains violence, better remove that aswell!

WTF, How are pictures of beer gonna offend anyone, its not like its porn! Maybe if you are that easily offended/shocked/padded-from-the-outside-world, you should not be on a forum that contains such a wide variety of people, cultures and discussions!

Rock on!

I guess John Childs is inappropriate too because his avatar is Guinness beer.

Anyway…this thread is really off topic now.

Ah I see… I’d been wondering why I’d seen parents covering their childrens eyes every time they went near the booze aisle in the supermarket, or to a public concert, or past a roadside cafe, or to a restaurant.

If you’re that easily offended you’re going to be a gibbering mess by the time you get to college.

Leave the chap alone or go and organise a unicycling event with at least 500 spectators.
