The 2016 Kansas Age Group Cyclocross Championships were held in Lawrence over the weekend. Team 360 racing once again hosted the event. A cold start for the day, but plenty of awesome warm food for specatators and racers was available to fight the chill. A flowy course featured a couple of punchy climbs. In addition, the USADA folks showed up to conduct a few drug tests. Unusual for a race this size, but possibly a new 'normal'.
