Ya have to be an animal to ride a singlespeed, so it’s no surprise that Animal won the “Best Dressed Award” from the 2010 Singlespeed World Championships.

Yes, Kiwi Tim Stanton won the award for racing his SS dressed as Animal, the drummer in the Muppet’s house band. OK, perhaps it’s a little late, as the 2010 SSWC happened last October in Rotorua, New Zealand, but it’s a good enough reason to check out the photo gallery ran last fall.

“One of the outstanding aspects of the event were all the incredible costumes, with people really getting into the true spirit of singlespeeding,” said Rotorua Singlespeed Society (RSSS) president Gaz Sullivan.
