Hundreds of cyclists turned out for the Sedalia Historic District Criterium on Saturday, August 25.  The start of the races began under downpour circumstances, but most of the rain stopped during the first race of the day.   “The rain may take away from the spectators, but the riders are pretty oblivious to the rain and they are always ready for this,” said race promoter and owner of Pro-Velo Cycling, Ebby Norman.

As the rain started to subside, more fans showed up at the start/finish line on Ohio Street to watch the bikes race around downtown Sedalia.  Riders from all around showed up for the different classes scheduled and races throughout the afternoon and evening.

Next year, Newstalk 1050 KSIS, 92.3 Bob-FM and Better Country Country KIX 105 will offer a challenge for area celebrities to do a charity race, and we look forward to working with the promoters of the Criterium in 2013 to make that happen.
