The 2011 Chicagoland road season wraps up this weekend with a pair of circuit races at the Fall Fling! Saturday's race features the longest races of the series and at Sunday's finalé in Wood Dale we'll be serving up brats and mostaciolli for all the riders in celebration of a season well-raced!
You can still register online at Active.com or just show up and register on-site. Full details and current standings are available at ABDcycling.com. After two races it's the Bicycle Heaven club with an 11 point lead for the $2,000 overall team prize!
Thanks to all of the riders who came out to kick off the Fling this past weekend. Despite the threat of rain all week we lucked out and stayed dry for the first two stages and riders put that fitness they've been building all year to good use! We hear the Category 1/2/3/40+ race averaged over 28 mph on Saturday and ABD's own Bryce Mead blitzed Sunday's TT 9.4 mile TT course in 19 minutes and 55 seconds to post the fastest time of the day. Leigh Thompson of VisionQuest posted a 22:59 for the fastest women's time of the day.
Although the road season will soon be over the cross season is just heating up! ABD's cross race at Sunrise Park will be held on Sunday, October 3rd and registration is now open.
And last but not least for those interested in getting a jump on their 2012 season- the ABD Boot Camps are back for their 7th season. After selling out every year we've *finally* opened up the camp to up to 16 riders per session, but spots are filling fast! Find out more and reserve your spot now at PrairiePathCycles.com
