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.
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
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.
Coming up this week: The Octoginta Time Trail returns. Back to the classic flat course on Old K-10, the last chrono event of the season. FLYER
