Chicago 'Cross Cup #4 - NE
Campton Hills, Illinois, USA, November 3, 2007
Haskell and Sherer win round #4
By Imelda March
Sunny 'cross like weather greeted the Chicagoland racers at the Campton Cross in St Charles, Illinois.
Race Director Brian Conant created a technical but fast course that caused 'crossers to gasp for air throughout the entire lap. The most difficult sequence was heading into the back stretch of the course. Racers were greeted with barrier that once on the other side caused a run-up type of mount which was followed by an "s" shaped climb hooked to a mean left hand turn into a technical portion.
Devon Haskell (Team Get A Grip Cycles) continued her winning streak in the elite women's race; however, in a change of events Holly Klug (Killjoy) nabbed second place in a close finish over third place finisher June Upshaw (Verdigris Custom Homes).
Mike Sheer (Pony Shop) took the win over Scott McLaughlin (SRAM Factory) and Matt Steward (Bicycle Heaven) in the elite men's race.
The Chicago Cyclocross Cup Race will continue with Race #5 on Sunday, November 18, 2007 in Lansing, Illinois.
