Sunrise Park Cross

Sunrise Park

There’s potential for lots of sunshine this weekend with two local races having “sun” in their names. Let’s hope that helps to provide a rain-free weekend – at least on Saturday and Sunday. Check the listings below for the cyclo-cross races in our area.


Chicross Cup Series Race #5 – This week the series heads to Bartlett for ABD’s Sunrise Park. This race was typically a grassy power course, but over time, the promoter has worked to convert it into a more technical one. Be prepared for the famous Heckle Hill and get ready to race!

Sun Prairie Cup – You can make it a two-race weekend if you head north to Madison. First up is the Sun Prairie Cup race, northwest of the city. This Super Cup series race features some fast sections as well as sharp and rolling hills. For race information, click here.

Celtic Cross – Although there’s always suffering in cyclo-cross racing, this Irish-themed race is offering up food, music and beer to help ease your aches and pains. Located in McGaw Park in Fitchburg, Wisconsin, this race will complete your two day race weekend in Madison. For race information, click here.

Coming Up:

Halloween Cross – Plan to head north to Milwaukee to celebrate Halloween and to take part in this thrilling cross event. The race is part of Wisconsin’s Super Cup series. For race details, click here.

Chicross Cup Series Race #6 – Next week the series heads to St Charles for Campton Cross. This is one of the original Chicross Cup courses and it’s always been known for its technical elements and elevation changes. Last year, because of concerns voiced by the park district, some of the technical elements were replaced with more power sections. We’ll see what happens this year.

Have a great weekend!
