The Illinois Cup showcases the best races in Illinois and surrounding areas. Throughout the spring and summer, riders will have the opportunity to compete in a season-long series to crown the best overall cyclist. Can a few top wins earn the title, or will a solid mid-pack rider who makes every race walk away the champion? In the Illinois Cup, determination and effort has as good a chance as raw ability.
