The KU Cycling Club and KLM Marketing Solutions admirably steppedup to take on the responsibilities and despite having only five monthsto plan, have preparations well underway.“The support staff we have for this event through the city of Lawrenceand the KU Cycling Club is incredible already and we are going to havean incredible event,” KLM Marketing Solutions President Bill Marshall commented.Also the promoter for the 2007-2008 Cyclocross National Championshipsand a 20-year cyclist, Marshall brings a wealth of experience to the event.The KU Cycling Club’s Andy Phelps also brings the know-how he gained fromsuccessfully executing the 2004 NCCC Regional Championships in Lawrencethis past May.“We are putting on an event on such a magnitude that you have to startat square one,” Phelps said. “However, the lessons we learned will certainlyhelp guide us as we host the national championships.”Lawrence provides a unique opportunity to many collegiate cyclists asquite a bit of money is saved for university teams that can now drive theirathletes instead of paying for air fare. Lawrence is within a 14 hour cardrive to 55 million people.“We are eager to go to Lawrence for this event due to its central locationwhich makes competing at Nationals accessible to colleges around the nation,”explained USA Cycling CEO Gerard Bisceglia.Competition will consist of a road race, criterium, and team time trialoffering challenges to riders of all caliber. The road course is a 23 mileloop around Lake Perry. “It’s a very hilly and challenging course,” Marshalldescribed. “Anyone who says Kansas is flat has only driven their car there– not ridden a bike.”Registration information and other details for the 2005 event will soonbe available at www.usacycling.org and at www.klmmarketingsolutions.com
