Sunrise Cross


We’ve had a slight change in the weather and this weekend we’ll have more typical crisp fall weather, which can be quite delightful. Add a layer or two and you’ll be set to enjoy a great cycling adventure outside. There are still plenty of events to fill your cycling calendar. Check below for a few options coming up.

Events: –

Celtic Cross Head out to Fitchburg, which is near Madison for this Irish-themed cross race. The race schedule includes the Wisconsin Uni-Cross Championships, so for all you unicyclists out there (and I know there are a few), don’t miss out on this exciting event. For race information, click here.

Chicross Cup Event #5 – This week the series heads to Sunrise Park in Bartlett. This course offers up plenty of grass, a wooded area, some off camber sections and the infamous Heckle Hill! For race information, click here.

Sun Prairie Cup – You can make it a two-day race weekend in Madison if you stick around for the Sun Prairie Cup on Sunday. Both races are part of Wisconsin’s Super Cup series, so you’ll have a chance to earn points in this one-two weekend near Madison. For race information, click here.

Coming Up:

Rhythm & Blues Revue – Be on the lookout for Jake and Elwood at the annual Rhythm & Blues cross race. The course is located at the Canal Shores Golf Course in Evanston, so it’s just a short ride from the city. The event also includes a kid’s ride, so there’s plenty of fun for the whole family. For more information, click here.

Halloween Cylclocross Classic – Head out to this holiday-themed race located in Milwaukee’s Washington Park, which is an eco-friendly urban oasis. Race hard and then chill in the park and explore the Urban Ecology Center after. For event information, click here.

Chicross Cup Event #6 – Next week the series heads to St Charles for Campton Cross. This is one of the original Chicross Cup courses and was once known for its technical elements and elevation changes. Over time, some of the technical elements have been replaced with more power sections, but it remains a series favorite. For race information, click here.

Plan Ahead:

Big Marsh Bike Race – Wondering what to do the day after Thanksgiving? Looking to stay away from the shopping mayhem and just enjoy the great outdoors? Head out to the Big Marsh Bike Park and get a preview of the soon-to-be –open city adventureland. You’ll feel spectacular after racing hard and burning off a few holiday meal calories.

Have a great weekend!
