2014 Arkansas State Road Race Championship (click the flyer below for details). Online registration discount ends today 7/24 at 10 PM. 

From the HealthSouth Racing Team. "In light of the recent, tragic loss of an inspirational cyclist this past weekend we will be giving all proceeds from the Arkansas State Road Race to the Laura Wooldridge Memorial Fund. The memorial fund will be used to help support and improve on cycling infrastructure and Women's and children's cycling initiatives throughout central Arkansas. Laura was a big inspiration to many cyclists. It is the goal of the Laura Wooldridge Memorial Fund that this inspiration can continue.

To find out a bit more info about who Laura was you can read this great tribute to her on the Arkansas Outside website:

Also, Central Arkansas Velo (CARVE) is organizing a memorial ride and service for Laura this coming Thursday. More info regarding it can be found on their Facebook page here:

If anyone would like more info regarding the Memorial Fund you can contact Scott Penrod, VP of CARVE, at

Donations will also be accepted at registration as well. Thank you for your support."
