Rim Race Nationals

KC Sprints will be hosting a 4 part summer race series starting in June and ending in September. The first of the 4 events is the RIM RACE NATIONALS! Event will be on Saturday, June 15th.

We will be meeting at the Scout in Penn Valley Park. There is a parking lot next to it by the skatepark if you are driving in.

There are 2 parts to this event. First off we will be having a standard style scavenger hunt. You will receive a manifest of locations or objects find around the city Race will last approx 2 hours. End point will be back at Penn Valley park to start the rim racing. Bikes with tires and tubes encouraged.

On for the real reason we are gathering.... After the scavenger hunt we will be racing junker bikes. By "junker" I mean bikes without tires and tubes.. Thus the "Rim" part of the event. The rim event will be held entirely in the confines of Penn Valley park. There will be a drag race, trackstand comp, skid contest, and last man standing circle loop.

Please note that rim bikes will be subjected to extreme abuse and it is not recommended you ride something you really care for. Some bikes will be provided but bringing your own steed is encouraged (and more fun in my opinion)

We just added BikeWalkKC as a sponsor as well. Mark your calenders and we hope to see you out.

More information on the other 3 events to come shortly
