ICA / xXx Racing Labagh Woods Practice Crits

 

ICA / xXx Racing Summer Practice Race Series

Alternate Wednesdays June 19 - Aug. 14

You know how they always say the best way to get better at racing is to race? This is why the idea of practice races is so great-- it provides experiences and lessons you just can’t get otherwise.

 

That is why the Illinois Cycling Association & xXx Racing have teamed up to bring you Practice Races run every other WEDNESDAY starting June 19th.

The location is at the Labagh Woods Picnic area, at the parking loop. Labagh Woods is

at Cicero and Foster in Chicago. Entrance is on Cicero.

The loop itself is .6 miles in length, contains 1 sharper corner, but mostly has rounded curves.  

The exact dates are: June 19th, July 3rd, July 17th, July 31st and potentially August 14th (depending on sunlight)

The  races are 30 minutes in length and ran thusly:

6:15 pm- OPEN OPEN race (Open to Men & Women of all USAC Categories)

6:50 pm- WOMEN OPEN (Open only to women/girls)

7:25 pm- OPEN OPEN

Fields are capped at 75 participants.

Registration is DAY OF only, and riders MUST sign into the races they want to do.  

Racing will be $15/ night. The fee is not per race.  Women will be allowed/encouraged to race in the Open fields.

These races are USAC sanctioned practice crits.  These races will not be scored so no upgrade points will be awarded, but they may be counted towards 10 finishes for 5s that want to upgrade to 4 at the discretion of the Illinois Upgrade Coordinator.
