Track races

Track races are a big part of UNICON! It gatherers a lot of competitions. Some are traditional:

  • 100m
  • 400m
  • 800m
  • 4x100m relay

Some are specific to unicycling:

IUF slalom
  • 30m wheel walk
  • 50m one foot
  • IUF slalom
  • Slow races (backward & forward)
  • Track coasting
  • Still stand

In 30m wheel walk, unicyclists propel themselves forwards by walking on their tire. The winner is the one who crosses the finish line first.
In 50m one foot, unicyclists pedal with one foot only (one foot riding). The winner is the one who crosses the finish line first.
In IUF slalom, unicyclist follows a predetermined course between obstacles. The winner is the one who completes the course the fastest.
In slow races, unicyclists cross a wood plank of 10m x 30cm (0-10 forward, 11+ backward), 10m x 15cm (11+ forward) or 10m x 60cm (0-10 backward) as slowly as possible.
In track coasting, unicyclists build up speed before riding forwards yet without touching any part of his tire, wheel, or pedals (coasting). The winner is the one who gets the furthest on the track.
In still stand, unicyclists balance without jumping or turning the tire more than 45 degrees while staying on a 10cm x 25cm plank. The winner is the one who stays the longest on the plank.
