Minnesota--Unicycling Capitol of the US
 
Why are all these cool unicycling events out in Minnesota away from everyone else? I wish we could get some more unicycling events out east, particularly in the DC area!! Also, why does it seem like there are more unicycle riders and activities in Minnesota than anywhere else in the US?

peleschramm 2009-01-16 08:57 PM

I'll be there.

Not only did I get approval from the wife to go, but she is coming along with my daughter and me. We are driving from Olympia, Washington. We already are pricing out bike racks for the Prius.

Does anyone know whether or not there will be a junior group in street/flat/trials/everything?

Tyler_N 2009-01-19 05:27 PM

Me, my mom and a friend or two are driving 2000 miles from California.

Yes there will be different skill level categories for these events.
Trials - beginner, Intermdiate & Expert
Street & Flat - Advanced & Expert
Advanced is anyone not competing in Expert, including beginners

Last years flatland advanced category had only 3 competitors - 2 beginners and 1 who registered to bring the participant total to 3 which allowed the other 2 to participate. I guess I'm trying to say that there is opportunity to participate for all skill levels of street flat & trials.

Okay thanks. I don't think I'm Expert, but I'm not really a beginner either. I think I'll go in advanced.
