HBall’s SSWC Bounty
Former NORBA Single Speed National Champion (1986) Greg Herbold is excited that the 2009 Single Speed World Championships will be held near his home outside of Durango, Colorado. However the lack of European entrants surprised and puzzled the former stock bike trials champion. “The Euro’s passion and heritage of the single speed bicycle is unprecedented, and their ability to suffer regardless of horrible riding conditions, terrible food selection, poor fitting and fashionably hideous cycling outfits, and overall lack of deodorant, usage make them a perfect fit for single speed supremacy. And besides the way they express themself’s in English is very entertaining …and lets face it..they haul ass on bikes”. Herbold spends much of his time roosting greater Europe and considers it “a great place to ride over historic places” in his adventures as a special agent for SRAM and living the lifestyle as an international cycling celebrity.
To encourage more Euro participation HB has offered the following opportunity for 2 lucky riders from across the pond:
- -complimentary SSWC entry fee.
- -1 all you can eat and drink meal at a pub of HB’s choice.
- -5 vintage MTB t-shirts.
- – A personal tour of HB’s Roost Missile Ranch, including an approved MTB artifact to take home.
- -Constant heckling and abuse by Durango’s finest riders and personalities.
