Counting Down the Weeks

The fall cyclocross season is only a month away. The discipline that brings together the roadies, dirtheads, and trackstars starts up with the first race in a 10 race schedule with the Jackson Park classic in the southside of Chicago.

Now's the time to get the bike together and tires glued. The cowbells should be on order and embrocation in the mail. Chicago loves its cyclocross as much as it loves its criteriums.

And the schedule as below, subject to change:

All Races are held on Sunday unless otherwise noted

1. 9/20 - Jackson Park (xXx Racing)
2. 10/4 - Dekalb (Half Acre Cycling)
3. 10/11 - TBD
4. 10/18 - Carpentersville (Northbranch Cycling)
5. 10/25 - Barlett (ABD)
6. 11/1 - St. Charles/Campton (Bicycle Heaven)
7. 11/8 - TBD (Garner Northbrook Bike Club and Flatlandia)
8. 11/14 - Indian Lake (South Chicago Wheelmen) -- Note this is a Saturday race!
9. 11/22 - Woodstock (Northwest Healthcare Center)
10. 12/6 - Montrose Harbor - State CX Championship (Turin)

Thrilled to see Gapers Block covering cyclocross! The growth the Chicago scene is experiencing will guarantee more calamity, cowbells, and dollar handups than you can shake a foamy beer at. I can't wait.
