KOM Competition

There are 3 segments along the route that are mapped as segments in Strava for our KOM competition. Riders may choose to participate in the competition by riding each segment as fast as they can. The best placed male and female riders after all 3 segments will be crowned the Jack-Cass 100 2017 KOM and QOM. Riders will compete for the lowest possible score, similar to golf. Your segment placing on each climb is your score (1st would be 1 point, 2nd would be 2 points, etc). The male and female rider with the lowest score based on the 5 climbs will determine the winner. Ties will be broken by the riders’ segment completion time on the final climb. If there is still a tie, there will be a countback on the times of the previous climbs until a winner is determined.

The 3 segments can be found at the following links:

Tour of KC Gran FondoWhat is a Fondo?

It’s just a step up above your ordinary ride: A challenging ride that combines the best elements of epic recreational rides and scenic touring rides with the color and flash of a great road race.

Ever envisioned yourself riding a stage of the Tour de France, rolling across the countryside with your teammates, crossing the finish line before a cheering crowd, seeing your finish time flash on the screen?

That’s the Gran Fondo experience–the thrill of riding a Grand Tour stage, now open to anyone.

Fondos attract the entire gamut of cyclists–from touring cyclists to long-distance aficionados to serious racers and roadies, to those who just enjoy a 20 mile Saturday jaunt. It attracts riders who are interested in the scenery, food and support that is a step above the ordinary, friendly competition and working for a personal best–or just enjoying the scenery with friends.Tour of KC Gran Fondo

Fondos have become among the largest and most popular rides in Europe, and more recently in America, because they bring together all types of cyclists to enjoy single, amazing, common experience on a ride. And by all type of cyclists, we mean, literally all: From hard core-racers to distance enthusiasts to fitness buffs to those who enjoy a pleasant ride in the countryside with friends.

And all ability levels: From those just starting out who want just a taste of a challenge, perhaps completing their first 20-mile cross-country ride, to those who want to set a personal best on a 40, 60, 75, or 100 mile route.

Kansas City’s first Gran Fondo ride features an amazing, challenging, fast, timed ride on the beautiful rural roads along the historic Rock Island Railroad route through eastern Jackson County and northern Cass County. Routes range from the Mini Fondo at just 20 miles to the Gran Fondo at 100 miles.

Tour of KC Gran FondoGran Fondos combine the best of epic recreation rides and beautiful, scenic cyclo-touring routes with the color and flash of a great road race.

All routes are chip timed–with certain time trial or “King of the Mountain” segments timed using Strava for our segment competition. But remember: It’s a ride, not a race. Timing is for fun and to encourage you to do your personal best, not to compete against others.
