The 1st Annual Shawnee Mission 3/6 Hour took place today at the very popular Shawnee Mission Park off-road trails. Conditions were needless to say HOT.

Team Cow Town was also hot as the Duo of Rich Anderson and John Wagner won the overall 6 hour event with 12 laps. Solo winner was Cameron Chambers who posted 11 laps on this very hot day. Early race leader was former National Collegiate champion Jeff Winkler who finished off the day in 2nd place.

The 3 hour event belonged to Mark Studnicki as he set the fastest first lap and never looked back. Aaron Elwell was a close 2nd keeping Studnicki honest during for all 6 laps of their event. Cow Town's Tige Lamb rounded out the podium as Tige fought off cramps to secure the final paying position.

Smithville Spazz-Ma-Tazz

The 1st Annual Smithville Spazz-Ma-Tazz was a great success. Henry Bullock did a very good job at his first try at race promotion. A big Thank You to all the volunteers, Earth Riders and the Mountain Bike Patrol for helping make this event happen. It was a Spazz Blast.

It rained a good part of the day Saturday and the course got about 3/4 of an inch of rain. But due to great trail building the trails were in awesome shape and by the second lap were in sweet condition.

Congratulations to our newest Cow Town member Brent Gowin. Brent won the Sport 20-29 division with his teammates close behind. Ashley Blum took a well deserved 3rd and Jeff Arnaud a few seconds back in 4th. In the Marathon class old man Chris Locke took a well deserved 2nd place in a very competitive field.

See you at the next race...
