      Am I reading correctly that there are 244 unicyclists coming from France to Unicon??? Where are they! When we do Paris rides, there might be 15 or 20 of us, I know there's a big club in the West, but that's what, 20 people? So I'm impressed that there would be that many people in the country with a competition level!

      Wait, wait, what??? There are 501 people coming from Germany? Whoa! That's a lot guys, congrats on being so many out there.

      And 1 from Tuvalu, kudos... there's less than 10000 souls on that island!

        But I guess you're west from Persia, but representing Germany?

        I know Tubalu since I operate the DNS of the ccTLD of Tokelau (.tk), which is the eastern neighbor. Therefor TV and TK get mixed-up often.
        Tokelau (1,337 inhabitants) takes a good week to reach - only 7 Dutchmen visited ever.
        Maybe it's the newest member of team unicycle.tv...
        Impressive travel effort... but I'm afraid it's Tuvalu being close to Switserland: at previous UNICON's she represented Cōnfoederātiō Helvetica.

        Still... 19 from Australia, 9 from New Zealand... that's impressive to.

            Well I saw your location in yoru profile, but I didn't saw the number of countries going up, so got curious.

            Also, notice the number of people that represent Basque Country. In normal situations it's explicitly (by law) forbidden to have that flag on official buildings.

            10 years ago Julian money was very against flags and anthems on Unicons. Seen from his point of view I do agree with his argument. But still I think -in unicycling and in general- a flag is something beautiful to show how WE can unite trough sport.

              Actually, I lived in England and I'm now in Italy.
              I have never felt any patriotism at all. Always thought that flags are just symbols that can not represent any part of me.
              Symbols are prisons... Freedom beats them all.
