New Event Webinar

The ICA would like to see all member clubs host or help with an event every calendar year. Not sure where to start or what’s involved? The ICA is hosting 2 webinars for new race promotion.

Session 1 (to take place 7pm on June 18) will consist of a presentation from promoters of both small and large events. Attendees will be able to learn and ask questions. Session 2 (to take place at 7pm on June 25) will cover the details of permitting an event.

These sessions will be designed for clubs and individuals with interest, but no experience, in hosting an event. All are welcome regardless of their level of interest or experience. Attendees will also have opportunities to network and partner with other clubs in the hosting of an event. All clubs that have not hosted (or assisted in hosting) an event within the last year are strongly encouraged to participate either by attending the webinar or in person (at PSIMET bike shop located at 11 Jackson St in East Dundee IL 60118).

Links for the webinar sessions are below. The call in numbers are long distance so charges apply but if you download the Zoom app you can simply use the audio over the internet feature at no cost.

Criterium State Championships
7/14 Bloomington Criterium hosted by Bloomington Cycle 
A note from the State Championship Committee: We understand concerns people may have with regards to the execution of this race in the past, but a new race director has taken over for 2018 that has been very involved and has been communicating for months with the ICA to ensure the success of this event, and working with the Bloomington-Normal Sports Commission to garner support from the city. We believe the 2018 event will represent a successful, premier state championship event.
