Rob Curtis (Psimet) has stepped up to revive the May 15 criterium in Fox River Grove, receiving village board approval last night.
Vernon Hills remains canceled, but this effort saves one of the most distinctive races on our calendar.
The race will not be part of the Illinois Cup and may not have the full range of categories, although the schedule isn’t final yet.
Curtis says if the race makes any money it will be split between Big Brothers Big Sisters of McHenry County and the Village of Fox River Grove. “I am only doing this to save the race,” he says. “I feel and the board feels that continuity is most important.”
