The 2017 Tour of KC Championship – Henry Meyer Awards are ready to go! We have two custom, hand-made trophies created right here in Kansas City. The Pro 1/2 male and Pro 1/2/3 female omnium winners will each receive their own trophy. In addition, we will have a new permanent Henry Meyer Award Trophy, a larger version of these trophies, which will contain the names of all past, present, and future winners of the Tour of Kansas City engraved on the award. This year’s winners will be added to the list of names which includes former Olympians and pro cyclists that have been part of the 54 year history of the Tour of KC.

These stainless steel trophies were handmade here in Kansas City by Machine Head, a locally owned metal graphics, fabrication, and machine shop. “The broad spectrum of Machine Head’s capabilities results in a boundless variety of types of projects which are concepted, designed/planned and/or just fabricated within its walls. Whether it’s a simple machining or welding job, a complicated three dimensional sign, or fine art pieces requiring unequivocal precision–each receives acute attention to detail and master craftsmanship.”
Machine Head is located in the Crossroads Arts District, right along the finishing straight of the KC Crossroads Criterium. If you have any signage, art, or award needs please contact Machine Head and let them to get your project started and thank them for supporting the Tour of Kansas City.
