Team Party Recovery Ride

Sun was shining to make the 35 degree day seem a bit warmer, until we all got to Volker, clouds came over and no Sun. Still had lots of fun going around the famous Rozarks trails with the team.

We'll be restarting the Saturday team road rides soon with most likely a new route probably throwing in the old one just for old times sake.

This all seem like some crazy fun you want to join in on? Send us a note at asking to join.

Urban Dirty Winter Series Returns!

Mountain Bike racing is back! Support your local trails with a low $10 entry fee (all of which goes to the trails) to race at some of the best singletrack in KC. The team will be out in force for these as the Winter series last year was a great way to get ready for some of the early season MTB races.

Feb 5th - Fisher Park in KCK
Feb 26th - KC Museum
March 5th - Rozarks

Details here -

Don't forget about trail workdays too. We'll have team representation at these as we don't just ride trail, we build it as well.

This one will be short, but sweet. We are super proud that we won the Kansas KBCXT team competition for the 6th year in a row. There is a trophy, housed at Potpie restaurant, one of our great sponsors, that has all of the winners since the trophy has been awarded. Each name plate reads: Team Colavita Parisi Coffee.
We love cyclocross and having a good time. If you are interested in joining the squad...shoot us an email at We don't intend to brag...but we are proud of the time we put in hitting the trails that Shoff built, riding, bleeding, and sweating as a team, hanging out and talking about bikes at Volker and winning races. The Strempkes won their individual categories (SS and Womens). Lee Lamunyon won Cat 4 BK got 2nd in the Elites and we had a bunch of dudes in the top 10. Our biggest men's points contributors were BK, Nick, Vince, Lee, and Ivan. Lots of dudes and chicks on podiums and having a blast at races. Have fun out there!
