New Century, Kansas — On Sunday May 29, a longtime Kansas City area tradition returns with the 2022 edition of the BRBC Jesse Blancarte Memorial Time Trial.
The event began in the 1990s with a course on 210 highway along the Missouri River in Kansas City’s northland. The race was renamed in Blancarte’s memory after his death in 2002 and eventually moved to the current location at the New Century Air Center Airport (JCI) near Gardner, Kansas.
A time trial is a unique discipline in the cycling world. Riders start one minute apart on a designated course and race against the clock in a variety of specified categories based on skill, age, aero or non-aero equipment and gender. While the event regularly attracts the area’s top cycling talent it also boasts a beginner and youth friendly atmosphere. Time trials are especially attractive to those who wish to compete but are not as comfortable in a large rider pack found in events like road races and criteriums.
The Blue River Bicycle Club (under directeur sportif Kevin Kramer) continues their partnership with sponsors Elite Cycling and Audi Shawnee Mission. Joining the sponsorship team this year is Natural Grocers organic grocery stores providing a grant for low cost racing opportunities for women.
Cheer on the racers or join the fun by registering at BikeReg. The first rider is off at 9am.
