The first Cookie Cross Series ended at The Fast and The Furriest Cyclocross Race. Final series standings are at http://kscycling.org/results/. Congratulations to all Cookie Cross participants! Thank you to Dr. Melissa Kusiak of Family Dental Co. for sponsoring Cookie Cross.
Just wanted to let everyone know that at the 360 Cup race USADA was present and performed random drug testing on six participants.
This is part of USAC’s RaceClean program where Local Associations submit races from each region to be placed in a pool for them to choose from. 360 Cup was one of the CX races we submitted for them to consider.
I want to thank the 360 Team for being equipped to handle the testing on top of everything else they were doing yesterday to put on a great event!
Here is a link from USA Cycling on information regarding the RaceClean program
Please submit to me by December 19 a request if you would like for your race to be considered for State Championship and/or KBAR.
My goal is we get this finalized by early January so we can announce at the banquet this year. Attached is a calendar of the 2017 races we currently are aware of.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me email@example.com
