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?

Could you put up guidelines for where we should classify ourselves?

Are they going to have separate racing categories for the 10k and marathon for geared and ungeared?

There's Limited and Unlimited.

Limited riders must ride a 24"or lower, and have cranks no shorter than 125mm. (assuming they are over 10 years old)

Unlimited riders can just ride whatever the hell they want. A geared uni would fit under this category.


At least this is how they did it in the past few years.

It's up to the organizers. I'm sure the racing officials are well aware of the growth of the geared uni population, and how they are starting to dominate in road races. But then there's the complexity of wheel size vs. gearing. What about a geared 24"? Make them compete with geared 36ers?

The nice thing about a category called Unlimited is that whoever wins really wins. If you keep subdividing the field, you might be left wondering who's really the fastest...

Both Flat and Street will have the same rules as Wuko? if yes I may go

Not sure, hard to choose between a roadtrip in Europe and only 5 days in USA!

Flat will have the same rules as euc/wuko (2 min. prelims, then battles for finals). The street rules used at euc haven't been added to the IUF rulebook (at least not yet) so I don't know which format it will be.
