Klein Rots Cyclo Kruis: Arkansas State Cyclocross Championships

The folks at Competitive Cyclist are once again sponsoring Klein Rots Cyclo Kruis, and this year, the event comes complete with state championship medals!! Add the promise of frites, bratwurst, beer, cowbells, trombones and, oh, yeah, some good 'cross racing, to a December Sunday morning and you've just brightened up my day! The details are below and the original flyer can be found here. Thanks to Ryan Johnson and Jason Neeley at Competitive Cyclist for organizing things.

The scene of the '09 Klein Rots Cyclo Kruis race. Very festive.

By local standards, this race, now in its second year, belongs on the cyclocross historical calendar so it deserves your support. Come out to Burns Park Sunday morning to join in the racing and/or the festivities. I'm looking forward to seeing what the Competitive cyclist crew has done with the course, as to location could lend itself to all sorts of cruelty and to good views by spectators. Bring your mountain bike or road bike and get your ride in as part of a very active bike Sunday in the neighborhood!! If nothing else, throw the kids in the car and come out to see what this is all about!
