Last weekend’s stormy weather put a stop to some of the riding and racing on Sunday. Seems like a small price to pay knowing some of our fellow cyclists suffered major losses because of the tornados in central Illinois. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they try to get back on their feet.
As we enter this holiday week, we have a lot to be thankful for; our health, good friends and family and an amazing community. Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday!
If you’re in the area, there’s still plenty of cycling fun. Check the listings below for all the events, but be sure to bundle up as the temperatures have dropped!
Chi-Cross Cup Race Series #11 –Melas CX – Basin Racin. This is the final regular CCC race before the State Championships in December. Word on the street is that the course is slightly different from last year, but the one main feature – the Basin, will still remain.

Booty Cross – Only in Madison would you find a race named, “Booty Cross”. Not a whole lot of details, but if you’re in the area, you should check it out. For details, click herehttp://wicycling.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/FL_2013-3797.pdf .
Norge Ski Jump Cyclocross – You won’t be jumping off any ski jumps, but there are plenty other pain inducing features. There are long grassy straightaways, off camber turns, climbs and super-fast descents. You’ll need power and skill for this course, but it should be fun!

Have a great weekend!
