Riverside Double-Header

Riverside Double-Header continues the heated cyclo-cross action in Kansas City as Paceline Products presents rounds #2 and #3 of the De Stad Cyclocross Van Kansas Series.

KC’s longest running cyclo-cross event is on tap this weekend. The 7th Annual Riverside Cyclocross Festival is the heart and soul of Kansas City cyclocross and known for its fun and challenging course along the Missouri river, an awesome post race celebration which includes cool swag and great food, special primes and a prize purse of over $1500.00 in cash

The course is famous for sections like “Harter’s Horseshoe” which takes the riders down to the shoreline of the Mighty MO before a demanding climb back out. Mark’s Madness is always a rider favorite with a steep run-up followed by a tricky double track section through the woods. A sand pit that seems to always swallow someone up before the days is done. And don’t for get Roger’s Red Brick road which again takes riders along the Missouri river.

Above all it’s all the racers who make this event. Riders from across the region come to the small city of Riverside to experience the event and enjoy a weekend of racing cyclocross. We have classes for all including Single Speeders.

Hope to see you all this weekend.
