Cow Town's Mark Cole took another win in the Men's Cat 3 class. Conditions were tough on everyone at todays Grote Prijs event with icy conditions making the course very slick and at times hard to even stay upright. Rounding out the podium another Cow Town'er. Chris Locke continues a late season charge and worked his way back up front after a few mishaps and some tired legs from an earlier morning running event.

Support the Trails KC Plan

Kansas City, Missouri, is currently drafting its 2010-2011 budget and
several trail projects are up for funding. Of course budgets are tighter
then ever, so it's especially important for your representatives to hear
from you that trails are important.

You can write a letter supporting these projects in about five minutes:

There you can learn more, find your reps, and send a quick letter.

The trails being considered for this year are all in the Trails KC plan
that many of you supported and participated in creating:

*Connecting the Trolley Track and Indian Creek Trails.
*The Line Creek Trail in Platte County.
*The Hodge-Smithville Trail in Clay County.
*A new trail along Van Brunt on the East Side.
*The Three Trails Corridor Trail along Bannister Road.

Right now, trails in the area are fragmentary and disconnected. These are
some of the key projects that will really start to give KCMO a **trails
system** rather than just a few miles of trails here and there.
