The Raytown BMX Cyclcocross offered up some pump track technical as well as long power grass straights. A great production from the Volker folks.
Near perfect Fall weather and Series points for KBAR and Series60 on the line increased the turn out for two days of racing in Topeka.
Area photographers are capturing the action in a big way
Day one's critical feature was an incredibly muddy section on an otherwise dry course. Day two (without the mud) meant fast and full gas the whole course.
Next up: Two days in Topeka for Capital Cup
Held on a unique permanent CX course near Lawrence (and the same property that hosts the Kansas Velodrome), Joules Cross is a highlight of the local cyclocross season.
This year photographer/MC and all round supporter Roger Harrison is offering some special primes:
"It is a pleasure to give the Women racers competing at Joules Cross, a prime(cash) that will be awarded to the first female riders to complete one lap of the "Spiral of "Death" on Saturday and Sunday. It will also be awarded to the first rider in Category W 4, W Masters(all inclusive) and W Category 1,2,3(all inclusive), Juniors(both age groups) will receive a prize in lieu of cash. These primes are donated by the Lanterne Rouge Volunteer Group."
Lots and lots of grass (and a little single track). The Cliff Drive race is part of a complete Kessler Park festival with some cool off road events.
RESULTS from Day One.
