I would say Sunday's Conditions for the final round of the De Stad series were epic. Great day for racing cyclocross - 44 degrees, raining, mud, pain...
Cow Town had an awesome day with Tige Lamb winning the Kansas State Cyclocross title after battling with Mark Studnicki for most of the day. Christopher Locke used his mud skills to work his way up to 2nd place on the day and more importantly win the series title.

Congratulations too Mark Cole for winning the last two rounds in the Men's Cat 3 class. At Smithville he had a great race and took a convincing win. Today he followed that result up with another win going away.
