​Good racing last weekend, and more great races this weekend - lots of options!

  • Haven’t been able to find (nor has anyone sent!) results from ABR’s Wood Dale Criterium - please send along so we can post ‘em
  • Results from Sunday’s Vernon Hills Grand Prix are posted on USA Cycling
  • Here’s a video of last few laps at Vernon Hills (thanks Pat!)
  • For this coming weekend, Saturday, Aug 17th is the Edwardsville Rotary Criterium 
  • Alternatively on Saturday, Aug 17th, for you TT aficionados, the Mad City Velo Kirk Vie 20K will happen in Pleasant Springs WI (near Madison)
  • Sunday, Aug 18th, you’ve got your pick of the Villa Park Grand Prix , the Speedway Grand Prix in Indy, or the Gas Light Criterium in East Grand Rapids.
  • Damn we missed it!  But hopefully bodes well for next year that SCW did the Tuesday Night Training Crits on Aug 6th and Aug 11th; their Joliet Autobahn race is Tuesday, Aug 27th
  • Correction to the calendar - ABR MATTS Double BONG is on Sunday, Aug 25th, not 24th (this is going to be a stupid question - but I bet the responses will be funny - why the hell are these called BONG’s?!)
  • Added a couple new races: Jackson Park CX Relay, Aug 25th, and USAC Illinois State Time Trial Championships, Aug 31st
  • xXx has an open spot available to go to the Green Mountain Stage Race in Vermont over Labor Day Weekend - leave Aug 28th, return Sep 3rd (drop us an email or contact Ben O’Malley at xXx)
