Wild Card Cycling will host their second cyclocross race at Heritage Park in Rantoul, Il. Promoter Karl C and his team have worked hard planning and setting up a course that’s both fun and challenging. They want to make it worth your trip down and have added more distance, extra climbs and a sand pit… the barriers and logs from last year will be there also. They may have a nice size mud puddle too, depending on how much rain there is this week. Wild Card has a lot of great prizes for the race winners and will raffle some after the last race. Yes, there will be a food vender with burgers, brats, chips, drinks.
Don’t start the Chi Cross Cup cold! Put on your favorite red, white, & blue costume, and roll down I-57 for Rantoul’s second CX race, held on Saturday, September 8th at Heritage Park on former Chanute Air Force Base.
A super fast course features broad turns and all out straight-aways.
Steep descents, run-ups, and off-cambers will get your handling sharp, and test your new brakes and tires.
Race Map is here(subject to change):
Heritage Park facilities include a playground and restroom facilities, plus free parking and a concession stand.
Heritage Lake’s islands make for a unique viewing point. Heck, you can carry in a small boat and heckle with nautical themes.
