St. Charles Registration Closes Tonight

Just a quick reminder that registration for the St. Charles/Campton ChiCrossCup race closes tonight and right now, there are only a few spots available in the Men's 4A and about 20 available in the 4B. The weather promises some rain Friday and Saturday, which means that the course will likely be a tacky slog come Sunday.

If you raced Bartlett you know full well how tough it can be to roll through wet, thick grass. St. Charles promises some terrain and lots of climbing, so it could be another hard course worth coughing up lungchunks for.

Racers dressed in Halloween garb get special priority for call-ups.

On Saturday, IIT is hosting a bike "Swap and Hop." Bring stuff to sell and bring stuff to unload -- table space is still available.

And a quick reminder -- the Half Acre Women Racer's night is fast approaching.
