(Sept 2, 2007) Giant teammates Adam Craig and Kelli Emmett won the 2007 single-speed cross-country world championships, held September 2 in Aviemore, Scotland. Both athletes followed up the victory by getting the customary single-speed world champion's trophy: a large, unsightly tattoo.
Dressed in cutoff denim shorts and a denim vest, Craig sprang to the front of the men's field alongside single-speed veteran Travis Brown (Trek-FRS) and Giant teammate Carl Decker, who was decked out in a kilt and plaid helmet cover. Despite suffering a crash and subsequent cut elbows, Craig outlasted the other two riders to take off-road racing's arguably strangest prize.
In keeping with the dominant fashions of the weekend, Emmett took her win wearing a red tube top.
