The Illinois Cup showcases the best races throughout Illinois. Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, riders from our member racing clubs 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.

RACE PROMOTERS: Guidelines and application for including your race in the 2019 IL Cup can be found here in the 2019 IL Cup Guide for Race Directors.

Each Illinois Cup race awards points for the top twelve finishers.  See the official rules here in the 2019 IL Cup Guide for Riders.
