God's Country = Fat Tire Fun

Dear Cycling and Multi-sport Enthusiast,

As President of the Cow Town Cycling Team, I invite you to join us in Lawrence, Kansas over the March 24 & 25, 2012 weekend for the God’s Country Fat Tire Festival. Our team has two fun filled days of off-road excitement planned.

Our festival...Saturday brings us the return of the God’s Country Mountain Bike Classic. This will be the opening round of the 2012 Unified Federation of Dirt’s West series. Traditional cross country mountain bike classes including kid’s events and the popular Clydesdale, Single Speed and Marathon divisions will be held. Sunday the God’s Country Off-Road Duathlon returns for its 10th year. For a decade this event has offered a fun and challenging multisport event for all ability levels. This year we increase the fun opportunities with both Long and Short course options. Elite, Age-group, Clydesdale, relay teams and unicycle options are available.

The venue...Off-road heaven is what some call it. The Lawrence River Trails (LRT) offers a trail system that is fun for all ability levels – LRT is rideable by absolutely anyone. The trails have the perfect combination of flowing dirt single track, hairpin turns, berms, and rolling hills. Expert to beginners will all enjoy the LRT that is maintained by the Lawrence Mountain Bike Club.

Festival features...Professional event timing and finishing services, custom handmade awards for both events, custom t-shirts, post-race food and beverages , free photographs and cash payouts for Cat 1 and Elite classes. Hammer Nutritional products will be available both days, The Wheel Cyclery will be on hand offering bike support and we will have plenty of Chamois Butt’r for all your comfort needs.
