Cow Town'er Earn Gold

The Warsaw Parks & Recreation hosted the Down & Dirty on Sunday.  This years event was also awarded the USA Cycling's Missouri State Championship designation.  Racers were greeted to a fast and flowing course within the Truman Lake Mountain bike park.   "This course is not very technical and defiantly gives the advantage to the riders with the biggest engine"  The heat would be the biggest factor for many with high humidity and temps in the 90's as the race progressed.

Results can be found on United in Dirt : Down &  Dirty Result. Congratulations to everyone who raced today.  The heat made everyone earn it today. 
 Cow Town sent a team down to the Down & Dirty and they brought home the gold.  Christopher Locke had to come from behind to take the Junior 15 - 18 win and added a Missouri Sate Championship to his palmares.  Brad Crain put in a great ride in the heat and earned the Cat 2 Men 30 - 39 Missouri State Tile.  We look forward to seeing Brad move up to the Cat 1 division soon - he definitely has the speed and fitness.  New Cow Town member Ron Schnick put in a hard effort and earned an impressive 2nd place in the Cat 2 Men 40-49 division.  Tim Green and Chris Locke both rode with "tired legs" but still managed to get 5th place in their respective divisions.

Robidoux Roundup Recap

UFD West Series #5 - 2012 Robidoux Roundup was held last weekend.  The Robidoux is usually a very demanding event with a hilly course (over 1000 feet of climbing per lap) and hot weather.  This years participants were not let down as race temps in the 90's greeted the racers on race day.  Race fitness, a good pair of climbing legs and plenty of H2O & Hammer Endurolytes were the ticket for the day.

Fast man of the day was Ethos' Garet Steinmetz.  Anyone that can turn a 33 min lap a Krug is a climbing god.

Great finishes by Cow Town members.  Christopher Locke made his return to racing known with a win in the Junior Men 15-18 division over hard charging Caleb Smith and Austin Stuck   Rich Anderson put in a strong ride in the Marathon class to earn 2nd place on the day despite a mechanical on the last lap.   Pictures coming soon.  Complete results at
