2012 ABD Wednesday Night Training Criteriums
Yup, it is that time. Start Wednesday, April 25, 2012.
5:30pm registration opens
6:15pm first race goes off
To start, we will just have the 30 minute scratch race followed by a 16-20 lap points race. Sprint for brownies, beer, socks, or thongs (MJH2's favorite).
Once the daylight last's a bit longer, a few weeks, we will start with the Cat 5/beginners (those with less than 10 mass start events).
ABR sanctioned event, so you will need to have a valid 2012 ABR membership. You can purchase a daily for $10 or an annual license for $25. If you are thinking about racing, live in or around the Chicagoland area, head on out to West Chicago (just south of the DuPage Airport) and race with us. It is a super nice 0.8 mile oval course with 1 turn. Race with people of all ages and abilities, and even some times a local pro or 2 will show up and burn your legs off for the fun of it.
It is a wicked safe setup, and we have only had 3 crashes in 3 years (2 by the same guy in one night, once by himself, and then again where he took out his entire Bicycle Heaven team). Great place to learn riding in a group, getting in a great workout, and learning team tactics.
has more information as well as how to get there. Come on out, suffer with everyone, then enjoy an ice cold beer (that is if I haven't drank them all before the night ends)!
