I have to go to sweet home Chicago for Thanksgiving and would love to do a cross race if there is one. I'd be willing to travel within 100 miles of Chicago or so.

The series uses 4 parks around Rockford for the 4 races, and I can't remember which one is #3. Perhaps somebody will chime in and help us out.

BTW, Rockord is about an hour and a half from the loop.

In addition, Rollo (a regular board contributor) may be able to suggest a very fun cross bike training ride on Saturday morning.

Sundays' race is in Alpine Park, Rockford. Take the Rt. 20 exit off of I-90 and go west to Alpine Rd., turn south. That's all the detail my crappy little map shows....Registration and pre-ride begins at 10am. I can fax or email you a race flyer if you like?

Supposedly, the "Illinois District Championships" are also on Sunday the 11th in Lake Villa, but it is run and organised by Wisconsin Cycling (go figure). So, you can race in Rockford with a bunch of people and have fun, or, be one of three people in Lake Villa and be "A CHAMPION". Typical crappy IL USCF District organizational thinking, if you ask me.

Oh, and as our beloved Alex hinted at, the Albertos Sport club 'cross rides leave Daniel Wright Woods weekend mornings at 9am. DW Woods is located at the intersection of St. Mary's Rd and Everett Rd in Riverwoods (or is that Lake Bluff there??)
