Summer hit Chicagoland once again for the Carpenter Park, Chicago, Cyclo-cross Cup Race #2; this marked a contrast from last year's rainy, damp and cold day. Temperature hovered around 80 degrees Fahrenheit which did not stop 200 cross racers (164 in 2006) from braving the heat to get in some 'cross racing. In addition, to the great racing the day was filled with music, food and local vendors.

In the women 1/2/3, collegiate sensation Devon Haskell (Get-A-Grip/University of Chicago) continued her local domination by holding off the field of seven chasing women. June Upshaw (Verdigris Custom Homes) came in second followed by Debbie Dust (Team Kenda Tire) in third. Haskell (Get-A-Grip/University of Chicago) probably has her eyes set on the state championship jersey in the upcoming Illinois State Cyclo-cross Championship on December 9.

The women's cat 4 race was wide open after Debbie Pielet (Albertos) upgraded and is now racing in the higher category. With this in mind, the win was there for the taking. Ten women lined up at the starting line and once the whistle blew the charging field hit the first left turn. Three women were together through lap one; however, with some women having better technical skills than others this allowed a separation and a gap was formed. The gap proved difficult to close down and in the end, Lindsay Jones took the win with Heidi Sarna and Imelda March (Team Kenda Tire) chasing.

John Tomlinson (XXX Racing/AthletiCo) dominated in the junior once again and rode away with the win.

The men's pro/1/2 race saw Scott McLaughlin (SRAM Factory Team) take the victory followed by Luca Lenzi (Vision Quest) and David Sachs (Vision Quest).
