The 2020 Illinois Cup has been CANCELLED.

Events on the 2020 Racing Schedule marked postponed (or that have yet to happen) are still in the works for 2020, but with half of the events cancelled, the ICA decided to postpone Cup competition until 2021. 2019 Champions will retain free entries into the 2021 Cup events.


The Illinois Cup showcases the best 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 a chance as raw ability.

RACE PROMOTERS: Guidelines and application for including your race in the 2020 IL Cup can be found here in the 2020 IL Cup Guide for Race Directors.

RACERS: Each Illinois Cup race awards points for the top twelve finishers.  See the official rules here in the 2020 IL Cup Guide for Riders. New for 2020: (1) Non-Illinois riders will be able to compete for the Cup, (2) New Masters Categories: 35-44, 45-54 and 55+, and (3) New Women’s Masters 35+
