LAWRENCE, KS. – Preparations for hosting the 2006 USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals in Lawrence, May 12-14, are underway and include a new day and revised course for the downtown criterium.
According to Christopher Hess, technical director of the event, the downtown criterium has been moved from Friday to Sunday to accommodate local merchant interests.
“Downtown merchants were very supportive of the 2005 event, but also concerned about the commercial impact on customers,” said Hess. “We’ve worked with Bob Sanner, Director of the Conventions and Sports Bureau of the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, to develop this change which has been warmly received by the merchants.”
