Cyclocross Calendars and Flyers

Here I am, trying to plan my 'cross season
and having a heck of a time -especially locating races in Kansas.
When's the Boulevard Cup? What's going on in MN? What all does IA have?
Why aren't there flyers? I know. Whine. Whine. Whaaaaah. Got links?
Please post.

More news sources than ever, and yet there is less content.....driving me nuts too.

In IA when all else fails consult http://www.bikeiowa.org/Sked/Sked.html

I highly recommend Village cross, great course, great payouts in the QC.

Only the four races there in NE, right?

What would you DO without cross????

:-D

That is so the truth, Dennis. More sites than ever and I can't find nuthin'.

Would it be so hard to have a shared midwest google calendar? As for races in NE. I think you're right. There's the two in Omaha and the two in Lincoln.

Velocc.... cry. That's what I'd do. Cry about how it's getting cold and icky and there's nothing fun to do. But cyclocross changed the whole winter perspective for me. :D (Tho I'm still wincing a bit at those december races)

I found a bunch on the usacycling.org site under the MyCycling section. I just edited my preferences and changed the "Event State Subscriptions" under the "Event Email Notification" section and added NE, IA, MO. A whole bunch of events came up. I doubt they are ALL the events available but I see quite a few. Looks like there is one in Newton, IA the last weekend in September. Here's the flyer link https://www.usacycling.org/events/getflyer.php?permit=2007-2288

Hope this helps.

Question for you. What bikes are allowed. Some people say I have to have drops, others say I don't. I want to use my 7.5FX will this be okay? Thanks.

'zactly SDA. MORE COWBELL! A half marathon? Makes my feet hurt to think of it.

Kevin, thanks for creating the calendar. Don't know if we can get anyone to use it, but maybe you and I will know what's going on and that's something.
