ARKANSAS “HIGH COUNTRY, HIGH LIFE” BIKEPACKING TOUR
Explore, enjoy, and adventure along roads less travelled — moody forests, creekside pastures, and rustic stopovers. The High Country Tour is a challenging, 240 mile point-to-point 4-day route that we’ve garnished with local comforts along the way. It’s semi-supported with great accommodations. High country — High Life!
Natural State Rock & Republic
I have the dates below for the next few video shoots for the promo/educational video we will be doing for the cyclocross project we are working on called ALL Cross.
I can really use some help getting people to the video shoots. We need spectators, riders of all levels on all different bikes (mtb, gravel, cx, hybrid). We want to show the diverse/inclusive and fun environment that cx has. We really want all ages of riders/spectators as well. From young kids to older adults. SO if you can make the shoots please do. Or if you know anyone that might be willing to help please share this email. It is ok if they have never even heard of cyclocross. This is a perfect opportunity to be exposed and learn.
As far as attire, if you are willing to wear something “fun” like a costume, colorful clothes, etc feel free. CX is known to be “colorful” and fun and we want to bring that vibe to the video. Especially in the spectator crowd!
Let me know if you can make it (email@example.com). I really can use your help in spreading the word and making this happen so we can build an amazing cx community here in NWA
9-11 AM Bentonville Course on Price Coffee ( I will send exact directions later)
12-2 PM Railyard Park Rogers
Lotto Thuringen Stage 5
Cyclocross World Champ Lucinda Brand (Trek-Segafredo) wins the stage and overall. Another example of a rider racing multi-disciplines with huge success. However unlike Van der Poel and Van Aert she went from road to cyclocross and now back to road.
Giro d’Italia Stage 20
Egan Bernal (Ineos) wins another Grand Tour at only 24 years old. He was cool calm and collected even when losing time to rivals in the final week. He had a powerful team around him and he should definitely buy Daniel Martinez (Ineos) beers for the rest of the year.
Criterium du Dauphine Stage 2
Day 2 and another win from the breakaway. Lukas Pöstlberger (Bora) held off a hard charging peloton. About a 10 second difference. It was also enough to put him in the overall lead.
