Atypical cyclo-cross weather once again was around for the Chicago Cyclo-cross Cup #3 race that had enthusiasts travel to Hawthorn Woods, a suburb just outside of Chicago. Sun, warmth and temperatures in the high 70s Fahrenheit greeted the racers in this installment.

The race course was not designed for the faint at heart. The hilly course had racers going up and down a toboggan hill multiple times within each race coupled with a muddy section, off camber and fast asphalt sections. Thus, another key ingredient was to have brought some climbing legs and an arsenal of gearing, a twist since flatter courses is more of the norm in Illinois.

Elite Men

Kevin Klug (Killjoy) brought his top-notch fitness and won. He was followed by Wayne Simon (Verdigris Custom Homes) and 3rd place finisher Scott McLaughlin (Sram).

Elite Women

Debbie Dust (Verdigris Custom Homes) took the women’s division in her first outing this season. She was followed by teammate June Upshaw (Verdigris Custom Homes) and Holly Klug (Killjoy) in third place.
