It’s going to be downright balmy this weekend in Chicagoland! With the snow melt and warm temperatures, many will probably take their training outdoors. Whether inside or out, there’s good stuff ahead!
While we look ahead, we also want to take a step back and celebrate the success stories from Cross Nationals. Did you know there were national championships in more than one country last week? Ireland had their Championships last weekend and the Cuttin Crew Racing Team was represented! Maria Larkin is from Ireland, but school and work brought her to our fine city of Chicago. Last weekend while others were competing in Austin, Maria was in Ireland, competing in their national competition! Maria not only raced well, but came in second, behind Ireland’s 6 time national champion. Pretty amazing!! To see some of the action from last week’s race, click here.
Chicago Winter Bike Swap – Ready, Set, Go! The Chicago Winter Bike Swap is tomorrow at Harper College. Head out to find great deals on everything cycling. Get there early to make sure you don’t miss out on the best selection. For details on the event, click here.
Specialized Indoor Time Trial Series – Event #2 – Local Specialized dealers are putting on a time trial series throughout the winter season. Each race is 20 minutes long with varying terrain. The catch is covering the furthest distance over the course of all the races. Racers can race multiple races at each event to add to mileage to their overall total. For those who might not be the fastest, there is still a way to compete for the overall. The next race will be held at Mill Race Cyclery in Geneva, IL. For event details, click here.
