It is time for the ever popular Smithville Cyclocross Challenge. Sunday, October 24th is the date. The beautiful Sailboat Cove in Paradise, Missouri is the location. I do not think you can get much better of a location with the views of Smithville Lake, the sweet cyclocross specific course (designed by Cross Guru himself).
Things get started in the morning with a cross clinic and a race for first times. If you new to the fast pasted action of cyclocross or have been wanting to try it out for yourself this is your chance. A class just for you. There are plenty of prizes, custom awards, free food and a very nice payout in the Men's 1/2/3. Get all the information at www.kansascitycross.com.

Here is the course map:
This course has a little bit of everything. You have your sand beach, your run-up, nice flowing course along the tree line, smooth flowing corners, legal size barriers, a money tree, plenty of pavement, and some very cool switch back features.
