Miles of mixture. Dirt road, gravel, fields and single track. 113 miles of fun (and suffering).
Epic is overused, but this probably qualifies: CEDAR CROSS
A damn fun two days of gravel riding/racing with scenic and challenging 'roads' plus some great sponsorship.
Don't miss this one April 5th and 6th: Tour of Hermann
Take the trip to Columbia, MO for the 24th edition of the Frozen Toes Road Race on 2/23.
Mid Missouri racing with plenty of early season rollers.
December 8th at St. Vincent Park it's the Missouri Cycloross race for all the marbles (or at least a nice jersey).
Note there is a "staircase of doom", always a great feature for CX. FLYER
