The extremely wet spring not only effected everyone’s riding and training, it also effected the residents living around Devou Park in Covington, KY.  The heavy rains caused mudslides on N. Park Rd forcing the main road up to the Drees Pavilion to be closed for most of the year.  This closure has forced the residents into a long detour to get to and from their homes.  To avoid adding additional stress to the residents by closing the roads that were still open for the Wednesday night race series, the City of Covington requested that we move the course.  After reviewing many different course options, we have all come in agreement on one course in the city’s entertainment district of Mainstrasse.

This new course is a big change from the “mini-road race” that we grew to love around Devou.  Riders will now be racing around a basic 4 corner, .5-mile square course with a short section of cobbles.  To stay in the purpose of the original Devou Park Race Series, this will allow entry level racers to get the racing experience they want and need but on a more traditional crit course.

With the new course comes a new name.  The series will now be called the Mainstrasse Summer Race Series.

We look forward to an exciting summer of racing in our new home, Mainstrasse!
