LAWRENCE -- Part of the main campus at the University of Kansas will be closed to traffic between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Sunday, May 2, for the 2004 Jayhawk Cycling Classic.

Mark Witt, police captain with KU's Office of Public Safety, said the circuit course race would close Jayhawk Boulevard between Naismith Drive and Sunflower Road, the entire length of Memorial Drive, Sunflower Road from Jayhawk Boulevard to Spencer Art Museum Drive, and West Campus Road south of University Drive.

Parking within that area will be closed at 5 a.m. Sunday. Any remaining motor vehicles will be towed.

The Cycling Classic will be the conference championship race for the North Central Collegiate Cycling Conference and is being hosted by the KU Cycling Club.

Organizers expect about 100 collegiate racers from Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota. An additional 100 noncollegiate participants are expected as well.

Categories will include public men's and women's races, campus group races, a public relay, a corporate relay and collegiate heats for men and women.

Registration for the events will open at 6:45 a.m. Sunday in front of Wescoe Hall and close 30 minutes prior to each race.
