About Chicago Cyclocross Cup: The Chicago Cyclocross Cup was started in 2004 by a group of ‘crossers from local teams that had a strong desire to race in their neighborhood. They spoke to other people who had similar goals and before you knew it a series was born. While the series will vary from year to year, a racer can expect great new venues with spectacular support from the local area. The goal of the group is to create a series that a rider can enjoy great competition and lively courses. (http://www.chicrosscup.com)
