Last Road Event for 2022

The 2022 Kansas City road season comes to a close on Saturday August 27 with the running of A Very Peculiar Criterium in Peculiar, Missouri.

Local teams Grip N Rip and Natural Grocers have signed on for this second annual installment featuring a Best of the Area Cat 3 team competition.  With only 25 feet of elevation gain per lap, this proves to be a super fast course – but watch those turns!


Don’t forget to stop by the purple Natural Grocers tent for goodies from Tiiga and Rudy Project (while supplies last).

July Racing – Something for Everyone

July is shaping up to offer diverse racing opportunities appealing to just about anyone.

Admittedly, with the early season announcement that the 2022 Tour of Lawrence wouldn’t happen, this leaves a gap in the calendar. As we see it, the gap allows for more training time. Right?

Thursday July 21 – The John Brown Time Trial continues with the second installment in the series.  Fast and flat, one can race the five mile course multiple times in multiple categories for one entry fee.   It’s a great way for beginners to try out time trial and for seasoned veterans to test new gear and positioning.

Saturday July 23 – A Very Peculiar Criterium returns for a second year and under new promotion management. Directeur Sportiff John Pahlmann (Team Grip N Rip) has designed this event to pit local teams against each other in a battle to determine who has the best Category 3 squad. Flyer coming soon on BikeReg…keep a look out

Saturday July 31 – The Kansas Track Championship Race returns to the famous Grass Velodrome.  With Category and Age Group championship races, this event is sure to be exciting.   The event will feature 500m and 1000m individual time trials as well as scratch races.

There’s more racing action planned for August which proves to be a time trial junkie’s dream come true with multiple TT opportunities. More to come…
