After a crazy 48 hours...

Things are in the works and we'll post the flyer shortly.

Final approval from the city will have to wait until the next city council meeting but we're getting our ducks in a row.  And I don't mean quarrel.  Those ducks, they must be in rows.

We're trying to love the sisters with a little more time on course (plus, prize purse parity) and give categories nice long races.  We don't want anyone to travel (the very short 20 min.) from St. Louis to only race for 20 min.  Here's the provisional race schedule:

1000: Men Cat 4, 45 min
1100: Women Cat 4, 30 min
1145: Men Cat 3 + SS, 45 min (2 waves)
1245: Kids Race (modified course, 1 lap, 30 min, send off by age in waves.)
1330: Women Cat 1/2/3, 50 min
1445: Men Cat 1/2/3, 60 min

I plan to post some pics, and maybe some video of possible course features soon.  This park presents an embarrassment of riches to the crosser.  Plenty of off-camber available, some "single-track", gravel, steep hills, stairs, and sand.  Oh, and down the street on Main and across Rte. 3 in the plaza there are great places to grab a pre-race coffee or post-race refreshment and grub.  More info to come as we work out details!

By the way, proceeds from the event will be donated to a local cycling related charity: Helmets First.  Check them out!

  1. Sudden change of plans and I will be riding over there (hopefully) by 3:30 this afternoon to check it out.
