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 2020 IL Cup can be found here in the 2020 IL Cup Guide for Race Directors.

RACERS: Each Illinois Cup race awards points for the top twelve finishers.  See the official rules here in the 2020 IL Cup Guide for Riders. New for 2020: (1) Non-Illinois riders will be able to compete for the Cup, (2) New Masters Categories: 35-44, 45-54 and 55+, and (3) New Women’s Masters 35+
