Chicago 'cross cup winds up

On Sunday, December 3; the fourth and final race of the Chicago cyclo-cross Cup racing series will double as the Illinois State cyclo-cross Championship. The race will be held on the grounds of Montrose Park in the city of Chicago. The course makes use of the many natural and manmade areas of the park, and riders can expect a well rounded circuit using elements of pavement, gravel track, grass and sandy areas with both off camber and running sections mixed into each lap.

As witnessed last year, the weather can change a course overnight and one never knows what to expect on race day. In 2005, riders rose to a cold and a snow covered race course. Race flyers and information for the 2006 Chicago cyclo-cross Cup can be found at
