Kuat Team Racing

Incredibly excited about the 2015/16 cyclocross season and the opportunity to partner with Kuat ( to race with Kuat Team Racing.  I use their awesome products and am friends with most of the folks there and it was just a great fit.  So how this went down...

At the end of the 2014/15 'cross season a dialog began between myself and the folks at Kuat about the increased popularity of cyclocross, a shared passion for cycling and quality products, and how we could help each other in grow our passions.  It didn't take long to come up with the idea of a Trio (ha, little play on product there) of racers who 1) are passionate about their sport, 2) love the atmosphere and comradery of participating in larger regional and national level events, and 3) represent themselves and those with whom they associate in a positive and encouraging manner.  Oh, and I guess can't forget 4) folks who RACE THEIR BUTTS OFF!!!!

With those as the guidelines we quickly had our three for Kuat Team Racing:

     JP Brocket - Overland Park, KS  Masters 35+/Cat 1
     John Jones - Bolivar, MO  Masters 45+/Cat 2
     Dale Sargent - Springfield, MO  Masters/Cat 3

When you see the Kuat compound (sprinter van, tent, and/or the guys) stop by, check out the latest in the best rack systems on the market, and hang out for a bit and take in the the action out on the course.  Look for the Kuat compound at the following events for the 2015/16 cyclocross season:

CrossVegas - Las Vegas, NV
Night Cap Cross - Des Moines, IA
TrekCXC Cup - Waterloo, WI
Flatwater Cross Weekend - Lincoln, NE
Cincy Cyclocross Festival & Pan American Championships - Cincinnati, OH
Derby City Cup - Louisville, KY
Cyntergy Hurtland - Tulsa, OK
UCI Carousel Volkswagen Jingle Cross - Iowa City, IA
Resolution Cup - Dallas, TX
US Nationals - Ashville, NC

While Kuat is the sole sponsor of the team, huge thanks go out to Queen City Cycles of Springfield, MO who helped get us dialed in with Focus Mares bikes.  These steads had totally changed the way I ride and between Miles, Jeff, and Jordan you couldn't get better service.
