  • JC Challenge Bicycle Race

    Many of our great road courses are on or near our State Parks and reservoirs. Lake Perry, Olsburg, and now Milford Lake. The Junction City Challenge is no exception and the road course is phenomenal. Long sweeping uphills and downhills with fantastic slow. With distances, shorter than your typical road race the race will have more of a circuit race feel on the 10 mile loop. The race is held in conjunction with the Miflord Lake float your boat contest! After the awards ceremony watch handmade boats made out of cardboard and duct tape float or sink! Keep this date on your calendar as we grow this event into a multi-day bike and sports festival!

     Come out and race beautiful Milford, Lake next to Junction City. Then race the KS State Road race the next day in nearby Salina, KS

    • Largest single day prize list in KS at $4000

    • A 1.5x  KBAR Event

    • A unique up-n-down race course

    Some of the smoothest roads in Kansas and the course either went uphill or downhill.
