hey all - just got this email from stuart and wanted to update all yin's on solo worlds...
Greetings solo athletes,
It has been my pleasure to witness the first ever solo rider, a young 17 year old named Eddy Hunt, who participated in our first ever 24 Hours of Adrenalin event back in 1994. Frankly we didn't have a category until that very day.
Solo? Are you kidding me! We had still to witness a team finish this new type of racing.
And so it was born, the solo category that is. Then in 1998, inspired, I created the first ever World Solo Championship, to be held in Canmore, Alberta Canada for the 1999 season. Since that time it has been my desire to provide endurance mountain bikers with a world stage to compete against one another. Both for elite and age group athletes and that's why I created the age group categories in 2002.
2006 will mark the 8th annual World Solo 24 Hours of Adrenalin Championships. The new date and location, plus a number of new qualifying procedures will be announced on Tuesday and Wednesday of this coming week. It is with careful consideration that we look to improve not only North American, but also global opportunities for participation.

to your good health,
World Solo 24 Hours of Adrenalin Championships
