Revolution Racing Announces Dates for John Brown

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

Bad Astra Gravel Race Registration Is Open

The Bad Astra

Riding gravel, in our opinion, is the best form of therapy. Now add a race to the mix and it becomes an addiction. Second annual running of The Bad Astra is September 24, 2022! You will not want to miss this. If you are of the persuasion that Kansas is boring or flat, come ride with us.

Choose from 100, 50 or 25 distances with start/finish in Ottawa, Kansas.  Register here.

From the promoter:

125 S Walnut Street
Ottawa, KS US 66067

If you are familiar with Kansas, you may know the state moto is “Ad Astra Per Aspera.” Depending on how you google it, the Latin means “to the stars through difficulties.” We wanted a race that was awesome and represented Kansas. We felt “The Bad Astra” was a great name for a gravel bike race. “Bad Astra” in Latin means “really cool bike race…” probably.

We will be offering distances of 100 miles (The Bad Astra), 50 miles (The Half Astra), and 25 miles (BA Party Pace).

(All distances are rough estimates. All race distances will be a minimum of the number miles)


A good, clean, Kansas gravel race.
