Polar Bear Alert!!!!
Mother Nature keeps cycling on edge for the second year in a row. After 2013 snowy spring fling here we go again. Racing only cancelled if slick pavement at the race course. Current weather reports put slick conditions and snow after 5pm on Saturday evening. This may make travelling home problematic for those from afar, please be safe. Check this web site, and http://kscycling.org/
The 3/4 WOMENS RACE will be 1/2/3/4 Women!
Flier is incorrect!
1/2 Women come out and race the 1/2/3/4 race!!

Welcome to the 19th Annual Spring Fling, the longest running Crit series in the Midwest. So long that maybe it’s the 20th year but nobody knows. The Fling offers great racing, a friendly atmosphere, and the beauty of Campground #1 at Clinton Lake State Park. One buck from every entry fee helps make Clinton Lake Handicap accessible too. Don’t forget the park entre fee, purchase your annual Kansas State Park pass here http://kdwpt.state.ks.us/
Sunflower Outdoor & Bike http://sunfloweroutdoorandbike.com/ has supported the fling since its birth years ago and we are grateful for their continued support. Brendan Sheehan of Santa Fe Trail and Coffee shop http://www.santafebikes.com/ has been a supporter for over 10 years and he continues to grow the sport with Military riders from Ft. Leavenworth.
I’d like to welcome back Bicycle Shack and our newest partner Velo+. http://velopluskc.com/
Revolution Racing presents our newest race partner Velo+. If you want some coffee, yoga, and sometimes beer with your bike then check them out in Old Town Lenexa. Where else could you find a free work shop on beer making, frame building, and coffee roasting? Just bring a can of food for harvesters. Check their schedule and be sure to tell proprietor Vince that Revolution Racing sent you.
Joe Fox of cycle city made the 2013 race his personal cycling clinic and his shop Cycle City http://www.gocyclecity.com/ is a great community bike shop partner as well. His elite team continues to grow and many battles will transpire this year.
Mimi’s Stamps http://www.mimistamps.com/ is providing special support for our Women’s racing which continues to grow.
The past few years in the bike community we’ve lost a few friends due to cancer. Christ Smetak of Bicycle Shack passed from pancreatic cancer a few years back and now his son Jason runs Bicycle Shack http://bicycleshack.com/ . We are excited to have Jason’s support of the Spring Fling.
Recently Christian Beattie http://stevetilford.com/2013/11/12/christian-beattie/ lost his battle with Leukemia. Contact Katie Lord of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to see how you can donate your time or DNA to fight cancer. Did you know most cancer drugs come from research on blood cancers? It’s rare if a family is not touched by cancer, don’t forget you can donate you time as well as talent or treasure.
