Race Poster

Hey Guys, it has come to our attention that the flier posted on the USA Cycling website was never updated when the race became part of the United Federation of Dirt.


Please see the UFD site for further info and the correct flier.

Hopefully this hasn't caused any confusion. Give us a call at the shop if you have any further questions (785) 537-3737.

The weather is looking a little soggy this week but the trails should be in stellar condition by Sunday. We will be walking the course Saturday evening and Sunday morning to clear up any spots that could be problematic and getting the trail in perfect shape for you guys!
We have plenty of beer and bbq lined up for post race celebrations, loads of schwag to go around, and some really kick ass prizes for you fast cats out there!

Also, pre-registration is closed but that doesn't mean it's too late to race! Come out a little early on race day and get all signed up. Registration opens at 8 a.m. See you all out there bright and early!

Trail Work Day

Big Poppi Bicycle Co. will be hosting a trail work day this Sunday, May 17th at Fancy Creek. The plan is to start work at 9 a.m. and work until about 12. We will break at 12 for snacks and beverages and resume work until 2:30 p.m. At 2:30 we will spin a few laps on our hard work.

Come out for the whole day or just an hour or two to help out. We will have a few tools on site (no pun intended) but bring out any that you may have including but not limited to: rakes, hoes, shovels, machetes, loppers, chain saw, pick axes, etc.

Meet at Big Poppi's at 8:15 a.m. to work out car pooling and caravan out.

Let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you out there!
