Official SSCXWC14 Kit Now Available for Purchase - Wednesday, August 13, 2014


We are excited to partner with Lone Wolf Cycling to present the Official Kit of SSCXWC14KY! To quote the fine folks at LWC:

We are stoked that the KYFNCX crew asked us to be apart of the insanity for another year to create the official kit of Singlespeed Cyclocross World Championship. SSCXWC dirty stripes, dueling Pegalion and Hodala Lion, and crossed baseball bats. We wanted to set the stage for the pilgrimage to the holy land of Bourbon and fried chicken.

Get yours now!

An Open Letter from Colonel Segal - Wednesday, June 4, 2014

A thought occured to me as I was sitting on the roof of a clapped out Mazda in the middle of Belinky Junkyard CX last year with Joe (last name redacted), sharing bourbon with the crowd that had gathered as we all watched two men on a bicycle with a sidecar repeatedly jumping over a similarly destroyed car with ramps on both sides.

The thought wasn't what are we doing here, it was the question of why we wanted to bring this kind of ridiculousity home with us to our idyllic Louisville (pronounced: lou-uh-vull [2 syllables])  Then we kept drinking and threw caution to the wind. Too late to turn back now.

Dr. Hunter S. Thompson said, "some may never live, but the crazy never die". That might keep you up at night, but my attorney advises me that he also said "crazy is a term of art, insanity is a term of law. Remember that and you will save yourself a lot of trouble". That may be a weird preamble to a welcome, but I guess it sets the tone.

We have a lot of great stuff planned for you here in Louisville. We'll have Qualifiers/ Feats of Strength that will test your skills and show off some of our favorite spots in town and you'll get to race on a true World Championship level racecourse. We also built in time for you to poke around and explore some places that, although awesome, dont fit the size or time requirements of the event.
We will continue to add things to the site to help you plan an awesome weekend. If you have questions, hit us up.

More to come. Until then, brown water and hugs for all!

SSCXWC14 Race Date Announcement - Sunday, April 13, 2014
LOUISVILLE, KY – April 11, 2014 – The 2014 Raleigh Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships will be held at Eva Bandman Park in Louisville, KY on Saturday, October 25, 2014.

This year’s event will continue the great tradition of prior Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships, with a full weekend of qualifiers, racing and celebration – all carefully choreographed for an outstanding participant experience and only 45 minutes of pain.

In addition to the championship events, visitors coming to race, spectate or hand-up will enjoy three full days of activities, including:
· Qualifiers for the SSCXWC14 races* featuring the legendary ‘feats of strength’
· Guided bicycle tours through some of Louisville’s most scenic parks and neighborhoods
· Generous samplings of KY spirits
· Exposure to Louisville’s world-famous gastro-culture and nightlife

The foundation of this delirious display of southern hospitality is the SSCXWC race itself. Building on the success of the 2013 Raleigh Single Speed Cyclocross Derby, the SSCXWC14KY will be run at night, under the lights, over the same soil that has absorbed the sweat and crushed the spirits of the world’s best ‘cross racers.

Eva Bandman, site of the 2013 UCI Cyclocross World Championships, is steps from the heart of downtown Louisville and provides some of the most dramatic racing terrain in the mid-west.
