Spring is here and that means mountain bike racing is in full swing in Missouri and Kansas. Some quick race recaps below from the past 2 weekends. Then it is time to get ready for the Robiodoux Roundup this Memorial Day weekend.
Mountain Bike state championships come early around here so you best have some form early on if you want to earn a title. Why do we have the state championships so early? Presumably to "earn" a starting spot at the Mountain Bike Nationals. The question is why does one have to qualify for nationals when other cycling disciplines do not? A question for the powers to be. On to the recaps.
The Greensfelder Challenge was Missouri's official mountain bike championship event/qualifier. GORC have created a nice little jewel of a trail system in West St. Louis County and offered up a challenging event for all. Complete 2013 Missouri State MTB Championship Results.
Cow Town Cycling made the trip East and was represented well at Greensfelder.
The Kansas State MTB Championships was last weekend. The Dirty Little Secret was again the championship event. Aaron Apel and the Big Poppi Bicycle Company and crew put on a very nice event for the riders who made the trip over to Fancy Creek Trail. Complete 2013 Kansas State MTB Championship results
Cow Town Cycling was represented by Tige Lamb and John Wagner in the Cat 1 division. Tige "redeemed" himself and took home the State Championship in the Cat 1 Male 40 - 49 division. John rounded out the podium in 3rd.
