Whew. Not sure about you, but we’re beat. Four days of awesome is tiring business. However, we had so much fun this week and we are so proud of all the racers – great work! We hope you had as much fun as we did.
Here are Thursday’s RESULTS. Please note, we are still finalizing some inquiries from throughout the week with the chief official. Finalized results will be posted to USAC over the weekend. Per usual, if you suspect any errors, please contact erichi363 at gmail.
Big Congratulations to our beginner category omnium winners!
Johnny Sprockets Cat 5 winners: Ben Cartwright (XXX Racing-Athletico), Jorge Canales, and John Orleans (Mad Alchemy Rider Cooperative).
Women’s Cat 4 winners: Erica Gaddy (Half Acre Cycling), Annie Byrne (Half Acre Cycling), and Maria Larkin (Chicago Cuttin’ Crew). We have to say, though, that everyone who raced is a winner in our book!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Looks like spring has finally arrived in Chicago!

Here are the Wednesday RESULTS for the Gapers Block Crits. Please note that we are still working out a glitch with the Women’s 4 results. All updates will be made once we have them. If you spot any other errors, please contact erichi363 at gmail.
As for tonight – the sun is shining, it’s a bit warmer, and it is (sadly) already the last night of racing. Let’s make this the best one yet! Keep up the great work, all!

Welp, we did our best to contact the city ahead of time to make sure the lights were turned on for the entire week but, alas, they did not come on in time last night for the Cat 4/5 race to happen. Calls have been made and the CDOT Bureau of Electricity are on the case! We are sorry that you dudes did not get to race last night due to the dark, but we really appreciate your patience and understanding!
For those of you who DID get to race, here are Tuesday night’s RESULTS. If you suspect any errors, please let us know via email to erichi363 at gmail.

Hey All! Thanks to everyone for helping Monday night go off without a hitch!! Three more nights of awesome to go.
Couple of things:
If you picked up your number and raced last night, please make sure to KEEP your number. It is assigned to you for the duration of the week. However, you still must check in at the Registration tent each night so that we know you’re present and planning to race.
Results for Monday night are available HERE. Please remember, the officials do their best to place everyone, but only promise up to the first ten. Sometimes they’re able to get more, sometimes a tad less. Thanks for understanding! If you spy an error in these results, please let us know via email to erichi363 at gmail. All results will eventually be posted to USAC.
See you tonight!
