Welcome to this years Meltdown.

Some exciting news first.  The Meltdown was awarded the Kansas State Championships for 2016.   For years the Trail Masons have spend thousands of man hours to build what many consider now are the premier trails in Kansas.  Come join us on June 18th, 2016 at The Meltdown and challenge yourself on the Wyandotte County Lake Trails (WYCO).

The WYCO trail system is known locally as "Singletrack Heaven".  Home to some of the best designed and maintained trails in the Midwest and it is easy to see why the 20+ miles (and growing) trails out at Wyandotte County Lake have earned that name.

The Meltdown races will feature events for all ages and abilities including junior classes starting as young as 10 all the way up to 60+ Masters classes and 50+ Female classes.  Also included are events for our FAT Bike friends (3.8" tires) and Clydesdale (225+ pounds) riders.

As the Kansas State Championships the event will feature competitive fields, but also focus on raising funds for the DKMS and maintaining our local trail systems.

This years event will support DKMS - We Delete Blood Cancer.  Help us save life's and delete bone cancer by registering  at our donor drive on June 18, 2016.  

Dr. Lindsay Gallion, DC with KC Core will be out again to support our athletes.   KC Core specializes in Sports Chiropractic and Active Release Technique (ART).  Stop by before or after your event.

Lantern Rouge will be out on Saturday.  As always look for Roger out on course encouraging you to do your best.
