John Fairbanks has offered to host a State TT in Hutchison KS on Aug 28th. With that offer we have updated the KBAR calendar to include that race. – David
We are now accepting bids for the Cyclocross State Championships and KBCXR races.
If you would like for your race to be considered, please let me know.
Regarding CX State Championship. A promoter asked if we would be willing to consider splitting up so that one race would be Category only and another Age only. If you want to have your race considered please be sure to let me know if you want both categories, or just one (if just one do you have a preference). I don’t know if we will split them but will consider it.
On the schedule tab is the current race calendar with all of the races we are aware of. If you would like a race added or changed please email Jeff Unruh at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please reply by June 10th if you want your race considered.

As most of you know USA Cycling has instituted a drug testing program for amateur cycling this year.
All Cycling Associations were asked to submit a top 5 list of local races which I did. USA Cycling submitted those races to USADA which will use that as their pool of races to select from for testing.
From a communication received from USA Cycling below are a series of links that have information on doping, banned substances, prescription drug information, and supplements.
If you are taking a medication and want to verify it isn’t a banned substance or might need a TUE you can call 719-785-2000 (option 2) to talk to a USADA expert. Available M-F 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. MST.
