De Stad Van Kansas Series Excitement this Sunday!

The temperature is getting colder and the cyclocross scene is heating up. This Sunday is the fourth race in the De Stad Series in Leavenworth KS at the Leavenworth High School. This is your last chance to fine tune those dismounts and barriers before Nationals next week.

This is the third year the KS State Championships have been held in Leavenworth. This course gives you a little of everything a cyclocrosser loves. The loop is 1.8 miles with nearly 200 feet of climbing each loop. The course is running counter-clockwise. (this is opposite from last year) Course designer, Chris Locke, says it flows well and is SMOOTH and FAST.

The Cycleops warm up tent will be there for you along with REGISTRATION INSIDE, FOOD INSIDE, AWARDS INSIDE! That means not in the cold. Carolynn Locke and Heather Jordan are cooking their soup specialties along with HOT COFFEE , muffins, brownies etc. The usual fare that you find at a De Stad Series race.

Registration (Inside the warm school) opens at 9:30am. Races start at 10:30. For more information go to

Thanks to our sponsors, Paceline Products, The Wheel Cyclery, Cow Town Cycling Team, Santa Fe Bike Shop, Chamois Butt’r , Jewel Cartoons, Kansas Cycling Association and The Lantern Rouge Volunteer Group.
