De Soto, Kansas —
*** For Immediate Release ***
Revolution Racing, LLC has announced the return of the popular John Brown Time Trial Series (permit pending) in De Soto, Kansas June 16, July 21 and August 18 in cooperation with sponsors AxGen Sports Genetics Kurt’s Energy Bars and the Natural Grocers Cycling Team
Race promoter Jim Whittaker is excited to be racing on the flat, five mile out and back course again located near Riverfest Park, just north of downtown De Soto.
Like the race’s namesake, Whittaker says he aims to do things a little differently, “For one low entry fee you can race as many times as you want in a variety of USAC categories plus a few that are rare: Team, Single Speed, even a Cheater category to name a few. We don’t publish a start list…just line up when you’re ready, tell the starter your name and category then punch it.”
Because the course runs along the Kansas River on a rural road, traffic is rare making this a perfect place for men, women and kids to try time trial for the first time. Experienced racers can experiment with varying equipment and form to perfect that aero style.
Parking and racer staging is located at Riverfest Park, 33440 W 79th St, De Soto, KS
Onsite registration $20 for men and $10 for women (thanks to Natural Grocers). Online registration entry fees slightly higher via BikeReg
Registration opens at 5:45, first rider off at 6:30
