The temps may still be a little lower than we’d like, but the racing season is certainly starting to heat up. The Gapers Block beginner criterium series wrapped up yesterday, and there’s quite a bit of buzz about all the action that took place on the south side. Moving forward the months seem to be filling up. Get ready, here we go!
Spring Super Criterium – You may not be Mario Andretti, but you’ll certainly have your chance to pretend at Blackhawk Farms Raceway. Tomorrow’s criterium is the inaugural race in the Pave Liga series as well as the first race of the 2014 Illinois Cup. Get ahead of the game and head out to South Beloit for a great race.

Lincoln Park Criterium – Racing doesn’t get much closer than Lincoln Park, so there are no excuses for not coming out. The course features a few long straight-aways, a couple of not-so-technical corners and one hairpin turn. What may be a bigger factor in the race is the wind, as the course is right along the lakefront. For details on the event or to register, click here. https://www.bikereg.com/23086
