Cyclocross Race!!

Robidoux Roundup CX is now in its THIRD year and SAME AWESOME VENUE AS LAST YEAR!!!

Monday, November 14, 2016


Well thats a wrap. Huge thank you to all my helpers! Without Chris and Manuel I would still be out there picking up tape and poles. I forget every year how much time it takes to put on an event, even a small one like Robidoux Roundup CX. Thank you to Nate and Trevor for coming out and helping set up also.

I will have to look at the ouside calender a little more careful next year, attendence was very low, but we definitely made up for it with quality. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR COMING UP!!!!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed the course as much as I like creating it (minus the hours of work flagging it)!

Race Day is Tomorrow!!!!

1. Course is dialed in and heading out to tape it today.

2. I highly suggest you get at least one lap pre-ride in before your race. Have some technical sections where the right line will make a big difference.

3. I updated the flyer (again, I am sorry) yesterday. I needed to split up the Jr races from the women's. I don't feel a 9 year old can carry a 30 lb bike up the run up (not all of them anyway; #finnness) so I am routeing the Jr.s around the run up.

This change is going to push back all races from Jr's on 30 min, no big deal. I apologize for the inconvenience (if there was one).

I am very excited to see what everyone thinks of the course I think its by far the best one yet!!!!

Hyde Park

I know that St. Joe is a little bit of a drive for the KC/Lawrence CX racers. But let me tell you, this park was made for cyclocross!!! 

Not really, but its perfect!

Here are some pics I took today. The topography makes it one of the most unique race courses of the season. 

One of many bowls
The run up (steeper than it appears) *Jr's will route around it, kinda hard for a 10 year old + 35 lbs bike
Unique topography, we will utilize virtually everything. Have some new features brewing in my melon.
More uniqueness!
Entrance; You ain't going to find something like this any other race course that I am aware of. 
Exit; don't think I am going to let it be rideable this year (you masters racers who found a line!!)

Results & Pictures

Sorry this has taken me so long to post. This year really kicked me in the rear! But all worth it, we created a course that I think was a hit!

I am sure most of you have found results etc. but here is a list just in case.

Huge thank you to all that helped make this possible. Special thanks to my wife who puts up with my obsession with bike racing and came out to volunteer and watch our boy simultaneously. Darrel and Jennifer Williams who showed up before the sun came up and stayed until the tape was torn down. Randy and his crew, Juston and Dave. Ed Schilling always hooks us up with more supplies and time year after year. Colton for coming out of the woodwork and helping tape before his Cat 4/5 race. As always Horizon Cycling.

Also wanted to give some credit to Dale Nichols from IA. Never met him until Sunday. He drove down from northern IA to race and also was the first guy to show up to help mark the course at zero dark 30 in morning! Seriously thank you Dale!

I honestly bit off more than I could chew with my course ambitions and needed all the help I could get. We literally finished taping and marking the course an hour before the first race started! So If I missed anyone I sincerely apologize and your help was truly appreciated. Its honestly pretty challenging juggling a race on top of family, work etc.

Here are some pics of the park to wet your whistle!

Cool tree lined section on the long course extension
Can't have you drive to Joetown without climbing some hills! (Entrance to the long course extension)
Cat 3, SS, M 1/2 & W Cat 1/2/3

1st real run up!!! If you can get to the top on your bike your a better rider than I am!!
Second ride/run up. You can make it to the entrance fairly easily if you don't care about your rims (I do),
Most likely you will have to get off your bike on the other side though. Also note to watch your melon on the other side,
It narrows towards the last set of stairs you see. 

See you Sunday!!!!
