The Illinois Cup showcases the best criterium races throughout Illinois. Throughout the spring, summer and 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 12 finishers. In addition races some races carry more weight than others according to their importance. State Championship races earn riders double points (2.0) and other select races will earn riders 1.5 times the points. Check each race’s flyer 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 Competition rewards the most successful program by tallying the points of the top 5 finishers in any race from a given team throughout the cup in all categories to crown the one best overall team in Illinois.
