24 Hours of Landahl becomes newest addition to 2006 Granny Gear series

Birthplace of Ginger Rogers, Independence, Missouri, just east of Kansas City, will play host to a different kind of foot-stomping entertainment on September 16th-17th, 2006. The 24 Hours of Landahl will convene mountain bike racers from all over the Midwest to compete on Landahl Park. The regional mountain-bike park in the Jackson County, Missouri park system offers a race venue unparalleled in access, design, variety, and flow.

"Landahl Park mainly consists of hard-packed single-track with several limestone rock outcropping formations," explained local mountain bike racer Danny Hooks, "'babyhead' rocks to actual spots where limestone walls are 6-8 feet high - where you'll be riding right between them provide just enough variance without disrupting the best thing about Landahl - its flow."
