Oh, The Afterglow
It’s time once again for us to post something up on zee blogge, this time for our hallmark Chicago event that we throw every year with our close friends Chicago Cuttin Crew!
Check out this dope flyer from the lady who basically single-handedly won the 2012 Presidential Election:
We’ve moved the race down to Douglas Park, where our new partners Chicago Parks District has given us free reign over the unused 3-hole golf course next to the fieldhouse. Resident architect and course maestro Max has laid out a 1.5-mile rollercoaster that will keep you on your toes and fill you with lactic acid over some surprising terrain that the park has to offer. There’s a bit that’s going to be wicked haahd (as they say in the northeast) as it’s freshly mowed out of a meadow planting.
We’ve kept the categories the same as last year, since it works well. You’ll notice that the Men’s Cat 3 runs at the same time as the Men’s Cat 1/2/3, so pick your race according to whether or not you want to suffah wicked haahd or scoop some USAC points before Nationals!
Fatbike etc category is back in full effect, and since we’ll be running through some sandpits and hopefully snow, it might be the right choice no matter what race you’re doing.
Couple things on the setup: We’ll have registration in a tent right next to the start/finish line so we can share power and data for all the computers the ICA lets us use. Portable toilets will be right outside the fence on the east side of the course. The fieldhouse will be open for warming up etc but it’s a bit away from the course. They *might* let us go on the patio where you can watch most of the course, but you’ll need binoculars.
