Two days before he was set to compete at the 2009 SingleSpeed World Championships in Durango, local cyclist Essam Welch was involved in a crash he describes as “a fluke.” Now, at the Gear Mashers Ball, friends hope to bring the cycling community together to help send Welch to the 2010 SingleSpeed World Championships.
