A Whole Weekend of Racing

And they're all within a few hours of Chicago.


5/23: Snake Alley Criterium, Burlington, IA. Short, sharp, with a field-splitting climb up a brick street. USCF.

5/23-5/25: Memorial Day Master's Criterium, Wood Dale, IL. All weekend long racing for the 30+ rider. ABR.

5/24: Melon City Criterium, Melon City, IL. Some terrain to shred the field in this race 3 hours from Chi-town. USCF.

5/25: Quad Cities Criterium, Rock Island, IL. Flat, fast and apparently one of the "best wheelpits in the world," what ever that means (beer?). USCF.


5/23: 12 Hours of Northern Kettles. Glenbeulah, WI. WEMS endurance racing with lots of camping opportunities.
