Chicagoans Sweep State Crit Champs

This past Sunday, downtown Peoria was the site of the Illinois State Criterium Championships, and accordingly, Chicagoland was well-represented on the podiums, with a whole gaggle of local cyclists taking home the champion's jersey. Some familiar names top the results, including Devon Haskell of Team Get a Grip Cycles, who won the Pro 1-2 Female category, and Chris Padfield of Team Pegasus who steamrolled for a solo win in the Cat. 4 Men. Chicago Bike Racing has an excellent wrap-up of the day, check it out here.
