Illinois Cup

The Illinois Cup showcases the best races throughout Illinois. Throughout the spring and summer fall riders from our member racing clubs will have the opportunity to compete in a season-long series to crown the best overall cyclist. Can a few top wins earn the title, or will a solid mid pack rider who makes every race walk away the champion? In the Illinois Cup determination and effort has as good of a chance as raw ability.

Each Illinois Cup race awards points for the top 10 finishers. In addition races some races carry more weight than others according to their location.  Check each race’s flyer or the race guide to see what the point multiplier will be. Races doling out extra points have the potential to turn the standing upside-down.

The Illinois Cup Team Competitions reward the most successful programs by tallying the points of the top 3 finishers from each gender in any race from a given team throughout the cup in all categories to crown the best men and women teams in Illinois
