Fox River Omnium - Masters 30+ 4/5

Elgin Crit:

Perfect weather, not hot or cold and a mild wild to keep things interesting.  It was an interesting course; started flat through the first two turns then a small rise, similar to UGP, another flat turn then a left into a small downhill and an off camber chicane up a hill to the straighaway through the finish.

Monsters of the Midway 2014

Bike racers were once again spoiled with beautiful weather for Monsters of the Midway this past weekend.  The race takes place on the Midway Plaisance at the University of Chicago.  I don’t know what a plaisance is, but this is a course that any Nascar fan would love.  Go fast, turn left, repeat 4 times, that’s a lap.

This was my third criterium, the first two having been a month ago at the Spring Super in South Beloit. The course was beautiful and I had fun.

Urbana Grand Prix - Cat 4/5 Report - Ryan H.

Well, my report isn't going to be as interesting as the others. My training going into the race has been almost non-existant so I didn't have very high hopes to do anything.

I planned to sit in the pack to conserve enough energy to make an attack if the team needed it later in the race. Unfortunately I never got the chance.
