RENEGADE CYCLOCROSS

This is a training race, bike practice, or whatever else you kids want to call it. No entry fees, no prizes, no official results. Please understand the word "race" is used loosely.

What it WILL be is a great opportunity to get some intensity in, practice barriers, run-ups and other cyclocross skills and ride against guys of varying abilities. This makes it a GREAT chance for newer riders to gain some confidence and have some fun, while the experienced guys get a good workout and pass on some knowledge. Above all, it's a good reason to ride cross bikes with friends. Cool?

BEGINNERS WELCOME!

This IS the place to learn! Find out more about Cyclocross, the courses, and the bike set-up at Cyclocross 101. Cyclocross is the fastest-growing cycling discipline of the 21st century. Getcha some!

LOCATION

Stone Park is where all Renegade Cyclocross Practices will be held. The park will be groomed and we will continue to use the hill on the South side!


SWAP FOR THE NEW RIDERS

We've welcomed quite a few new riders to the scene this year and they don't always have the best equipment and many times they are not quite ready to spend the money to upgrade before they know if they'll like it.

SO... Starting with the Sept 21st Renegade, we will have a "SWAP" area set-up for folks to bring stuff to give away, sell, lend etc.. If YOU are not using some cycling gear, bikes, tires, etc. maybe someone else can.  Note: We won't handle any money transfer etc, but we'll offer the idea and the space to make it happen.

We'll continue the "SWAP" at Capital City Cross on Sept 25/26th.  Questions - Ask Josh or Scott at the events.


Thanks to

  • Des Moines Parks and Recreation for maintaining the Stone Park allowing us to use it all year.

  • Brian Duffy for the Renegade Cyclocross logo.

  • The BIKEIOWA Racing Team, and members of the Rassy's, Midstate, Phoenix Syndicate, Sakari/Smart Honda, DMOS and other squads who help set up and tear down each week.

Route

We'll set up a different course each week to include barriers, run-ups, with twists and turns to hone your cyclocross skills.
