Start for the Supercrit

Registration for the March 27 Burnham Racing Supercrit opens up on Monday, February 1. Registration is here. The Supercrit will be head for the third time on the Blackhawk Farms Speedway in South Beloit, IL. It's a flat, curvy course with no real tricky corners if on the bike, though if you're tracking a four-wheeled machine corner one can apparently be real tricky.

The course offers a lot for spectators and racers -- in years past Burnham Racing and Blackhawk Farms has put on a great show with vendors, food, and a smooth and well-run registration setup. It's a Saturday race, too, which allows for the rare Spring brunch with your non-cyclist friends (yeah, cyclists disappear on weekends from March to December). And it's only about 90 minutes from the city.

Also, a reminder that registration for the Hillsboro-Roubaix 'classic' opens on Monday, too.

Better have room on the credit cards.
