De Stad Cross Cup

Cyclocross in Kansas City has continued to grow in 2010, both in participation levels and permitted events. So far this season, cross events have been held every weekend locally and have had great turnouts.

This year’s exciting cyclo-cross season continues November 14th with the De Stad Cross Cup. Cyclocross-crazed racers and spectators will descend upon the beautiful campus of the University of Saint Mary for a day full of Cyclocross fun. Another classic course has been designed by the Cross Guru and will include all the popular natural elements that this great venue offers – tree lined course, cobbles, hills, short steep run-ups, fast straights, gravel, dirt and flowing corners.

Cross Season Full Steam Ahead

The 2010 cyclocross season is in full swing. Attendance at local events have increased with very good participation numbers across the board. Masters classes continue to grow and the single speed class is has seen some good numbers as well. It is also good to see a few new women out there having fun.

Smithville Cyclocross results are in. A very solid turnout on a very fun course that got rave reviews. Not very many venues top Smithville and only one comes to mind at this time - University of Saint Mary. Cow Town Cycling will be hosting the De Stad Cross Cup next weekend so be sure to come out and experience this classic event on the USM course designed by Cross Guru.
