Coming up: Flint Hills Express



This weekend it's another great gravel opportunity: Flint Hills Express

We're getting closer to road season with Spring Fling crits  starting up on February 24th .

The KCA calendar is beginning to flesh out a bit, but we're sad to report the loss of the GP VeloTek Stage Race. 

We do know that there are several fresh road events in the works. Stay tuned.

Here's the link to the Kansas Cycling Association calendar as of 2/5/18. Spring Fling and Perry Dam races are coming up quick. Expect lots more events to be added soon.

Expect the midweek training events (Wednesday Worlds Criterium and Gardner Time Trials) to start up late Spring.

There's also a healthy team time trial event. Put together five of your friends and get some early season hard in on Saturday: Jacomo Classic Winter TTT

The final weekend of the area cyclocross season featured two races at Herman Laird Park in Shawnee. Saturday's Cross In the New Year was contested in bitter cold but dry conditions. Sunday's Grote Prijs Shawnee conditions were slightly warmer but with snow on the ground and more wind. Meanwhile the European cyclocross season continues...
