#!markdown the coverage of this year's sscxwc seems to imply it is a sui generis event, which isn't accurate. if anything (i'm sure there are earlier, even more grassroots antecedents) it's a sissified (see: big wheels, carbon fibre, disk brakes, etc.), corporatized (see: GIANT bikes' sscxwc branded, pre-packaged bacon handups), copy of portland's annual mini bike winter event, to the point that it started years later, in the same city. in terms of spectacle, shenanigans, carnage, and "not being about the bike", sscxwc doesn't look to hold a candle to the mayhem that is mini bike winter. seb, if you really want to see just how deep the rabbit-hole goes (assuming it hasn't been watered down over the years) consider an earlier trip to portland in 2016
