Coming up: CYCLOCROSS!



Joules Cross experienced all the mood swings of Mother Natures. A warmish Saturday that finished off with tent destroying winds. A coolish Sunday with Fall breezes.

This is a 'skip' week for cyclocross in the KC area. A number of folks are heading to the BT Epic mountain bike race for their dirt fix. Riders heading to the Masters World Championships in Mol, Belgium will be training on the sand at the Lawrence River Trails. IF you have an interest in crossing the pond this year, the staff guides a trip. Some slots are available, contact us for more info This email address is being protected from spambots.

Two days of racing in Lawrence, Kansas: Saturday 10/14 and Sunday 10/15. Midweek rain and potential for more on Saturday should mean softer ground. While this course does not have any pavement sections, there is a compressed jeep road used for the start/finish sections. Much of the course traverses grassy pasture land with some potential for a boggy wet section.


A very different Blue Valley Park course was utilized for the 2017 Colavita Cup. The venue change from Roanoke Park saw riders tackle one of the hilliest/hardest tracks in recent memory.



This was also a race in the  Cookie Cross Series

The Colavita Cup cyclocross races scheduled for October 7th and 8th are still a 'GO". Just be sure to go to the right park! Originally to be held in Roanoke Park, the event is moved to Blue Valley Park (where the season opening Prologue CX was held).


FLYER with correct times 

Some sprinkles in the morning (but not enough to soften some of the rougher spots) before the start of the morning races. Big turnout of kids thanks to the Donderdag! Youth program.

Next up: Colavita Cup

A pleasant Fall day to turn oneself inside out. The Octoginta Time Trial returned to the classic course on Old K-10 on the East Side of Lawrence.

Radler Cross added a great new event to the local CX scene. Some unseasonably hot weather kept the feed zone active. Lots of kids, some great food, a great park.
