Single Speed State Championship Postponed

The original date for the Single Speed State Championship happened to fall on the same day as Single Speed USA in Copper Harbor.  An alternative later in the year is in the works.  Thanks for being cool with that.

Southern Kettle Classic Results

2014 Southern Kettles Classic Results

Here are the race results, there were a few DB errors that had to be corrected before posting. Some racers also asked if the laps were really 7.3 miles. The answer is yes unless a very expensive GPS that is used for map making was defective.  Some racers reported only riding a little over 6 miles according to their Strava. Cell coverage and even low end GPS units don’t work very good in dense coverage on rolling terrain. An alternative method is a really expensive GPS unit with an external patch or helix antenna or the good old fashion wired cycle computer.
