Safety clinic at Tour of Oak Brook
The Illinois Cycling Association is sponsoring a safety clinic before Saturday's Tour of Oak Brook, our state road race championship. Dan Jerger (Vision Quest) will lead the session. Among other things it will cover how to deal with the centerline rule and overlapping fields, both of which are likely to come into play on this course.The clinic starts at 7:30 a.m. I highly recommend all men, women and juniors new to road races attend. You'll still have plenty of time to make it your race and be warm, and the clinic will count toward upgrade requirements. In other Oak Brook news, the P/1/2 shouldn't have to worry about overtaking the pace car: They'll be following a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, on loan from Lamborghini of Chicago and capable of going 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. More than 50 riders have already registered for the 5's, so there will be two fields. Note that the masters 4/5 field has only 15 slots left as of this writing. Register now to reserve your slot and avoid the $5 late charge.
