Coming up: CYCLOCROSS!

 

 

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.
