After a few months of good times, taking it easy, racing road "here and there" and having fun on bikes, TCPC is ready to get back in the saddle again and gear up for Cyclocross. We love cyclocross.
Some highlights from road: BK got 5th in the Cat 1/2 Kbar standings. Jeret got 5th in Cat 3. The team got 5th mostly from BK and Jeret's points. Lots of people raced Mountain-bikes and won or got close to winning or had a good time. Zach Wright got top 5 at Single Speed KC. It seems like 5 is a good number for us. It is how many years we have won KBCXT in a row. And now it is time to defend that title. Cross is HERE.

KS MTB State Championships

The team was out in force at the Meltdown MTB race which was this year's Kansas State Championships. The heat from earlier in the week subsided a bit so we raced in the lower 90s. I and I'm sure many other teammates took advantage of the mid-course tent where there were volunteers happily spraying racers before the long gravel climb.

Wyandotte County Lake is an awesome venue for races and riding. If you've never visited, make sure you add it to your trail rotation. It has some fun technical sections, nice flowing sections, and most importantly fun for all skill levels. The trails were in awesome condition for the race.

The team rolled away with 3 State Championships

 Alyson Green - Cat 2 -  KS State Champion (She also won Cat 3 MO State last week)

Dylan Medlock - Cat 2 - 30 to 39 KS State Champion
Corey Chrissan - Cat 2 - 15 to 18 KS State Champion

Other Podium Results/Honorable Mentions

Vince DeLaughter - 2nd Place - Singlespeed

Andrew Strempke - First MTB race!

Thanks to the organizers and volunteers for putting on a great race. Its not very often you get done with a race and there's some delicious pulled pork, pasta salad and watermelon waiting for you.

Local mountain bike racing returns to KC
You know how you and your friends are always complaining that there's no local mountain bike races in KC?  I mean, how nice would it be to race on some local trails 20 minutes from home for a change? Enter the Urban Dirty winter XC race series!!  
     Brett Shoffner of Urban Trail Co. and Volker bicycles have partnered up to bring local mtb racing back to KC.  The first installment happened last Sunday at Kessler Park in KCMO and featured rocky/rooty singletrack, some fast grass sections, a little bit of mud and a steep road climb on a 3/4 mile short track style loop.  The weather stayed nice and partcipants stuck around for tasty adult beverages and Colavita sauce prizes from our sponsors.  
     This Sunday, February 14th promises more technical mtb fun at the Rozarks trail.  South Cherokee street at Mt.  Marty Park.  KCK First race at 1p.m.  Men's cat 1/2 race at 2 p.m.
     Here's the good part:  races every Sunday in Feb.  USAC sanctioned.  Haven't renewed your racing license yet? No problem.  We'll pay your one day license fee.  You heard me.  WE WILL PAY YOUR ONE DAY LICENSE FEE!  That means if you've never had a USAC license and want to try your hand at racing, it will only cost you the $20 for an entry fee.  Same for if you haven't renewed yet for the year.  Perfect time to get in on some low cost, fun local racing.  There will be prizes for the overall series.  45 min race for Fatbike, single speed, women's 1/2/3, men's cat 3.  1hr for men's cat 1/2.  Wanna be a hardass and get some training for your upcoming marathon race?  Race the second race for only 10 bucks.
