UNICON XV is a mix of competitive events as well as a convention-style gathering of unicyclists from around the world. Over 650 Unicyclists from 23 different countries are registered to take part in this 10-day event.
Each UNICON is open to anyone who can ride a unicycle, and showcases multiple types of unicycling, including Artistic Freestyle, MUni (mountain-unicycling), Street, Track and Field, Unicycle Hockey and Basketball, Road Racing and more! See this site for an enlightening visual explanation of each category!
I have some friends involved in the ACT Unicycle Riders Society (ACTURS) attending this event, and I look forward to seeing if any of them can get their name in the record books.
For now, here is a nice little video "book" highlighting some of the ACTURS' club members doing an exhibition during Canberra's Floriade this past spring.
But right now, I wish I had made plans to go...(sigh) And stay tuned for more about what happened at UNICON XV!
