Cyclocross clinics and practices have been popping up around the metro. Wednesday September 14th is the traditional Localcycling/BLVD beginner clinic at Herman Laird Park 6PM start time. There is also another session at the Joules Cross Course in Lawrence on 9/15.
Racing begins locally with Prologue Cross on September 17th and 18th. This event will be a great tune up for those heading to Jingle Cross the following week.
On October 1st it's Castle 'Cross, another fresh event at a new venue. A special course in Kansas City's Jazz District with some unique features.
Following up on October 2nd will be Spooky Cross in Atchison (Flyer soon).
Here's the link to the very healthy KCA local calendar (scroll down for the CX races).
Another bonus to the local scene is a kids specific series (scored at specific races): Cookie Cross
