Meet Sam Loring

Name: Sam Loring

KCA Board Position: Race Calendar Coordinator

A Little About Me:

I have been active in the KC racing scene since 2015 but have been an avid cyclist all of my life. I grew up here in the area and my first local bike shop was Leawood Bikes, where I would go in and listen to great stories of cycling’s glory days from Ariel Mendez. My interest in cycling continued off and on through college, moving to New York City, and moving back home where I now race for GripNRip.

We are all aware about the decline of road racing in the region over the past several years and my goal for this year is to get a race calendar out early to racers so that we can all plan our season. I plan to work with promoters to get events penciled in early so that we can start to build momentum to bring racing back to our community.
