Course is a million times better this year than in years past. Great mix of sand, power, features, elevation, and more sand. State Championship worthy! Great job.
First lap of the Masters 45+ race.
Great course, great people. Would also like to thank all the people that put in so much time and effort putting this series together, not to mention the officials with the tough job of lining us up and scoring!
There will be – and there should be – a TON of recognition for Ten27 and Spidermonkey for putting on such a great race. That was a fantastic course, but I’m still getting all the sand out of my eye from the face plant I did.

LOST GARMIN 800-
All- lost my Garmin in the chaos of the Cat4 race. It’s a Edge 800 with a cover on it. Please let me know if you happened to pick it up. Reward for return.
I think there is still sand in my ears.
I left a 90’s era, solid red, ski jacket at the start line. Rumor has it that the Monkey’s got it. If so please enjoy ( 90’s fashion is due for a comeback) or donate it.
Also, thanks for a great race!
That jacket made it into the lost and found bin in the CCC trailer which will be at Afterglow. You can claim your item(s) there.
There is something wrong with 55 results…just for the record…
Voytek this comment is not helpful. Send us an email with details at ChicagoCrossCup at gmail and we’ll sort it out. Thanks.
Some photos of the morning races. Great event! https://www.flickr.com/photos/clarkmaxwell/with/23561141486/
Thanks to everyone for coming out to race/spectate/hot tub … It was a great day and we appreciated all the great comments we heard. It’s a team effort and that includes all the CCC family to make it the event that it is.
Spidermonkey Paul Decker was out with his camera taking heaps of photos. If you see yourself and want a clean, high-res version for printing/Facebook/giving to your mother for the holidays, all he asks is to make a donation to our Bike MS fundraiser to help the fight against MS.
I lost a black/grey Skratch water bottle and a Gore (black) shoe cover. Did anyone find these items? I won’t be at Afterglow so happy to come to you to collect if you found them.
Masters 45+ Awesome course, awesome people and awesome season. Thank you everyone!
Good race Ommmaaar !
This was my first year doing the whole series and just want to thank all the volunteers and officials for this years racing. Also thanks to the family’s and friends who heckle and cheer all participants to help make this so much fun. About 8:30 into the video #636 had a very graceful dismount in the sand right in front of me hopefully no worse for the wear. Another great race to end the Series Thanks again
Masters 55 plus
Wow. That happened quick. Hope he’s ok.

Thanks to Ten27, Spidermonkey, and everyone else involved for putting on such a great event! Thanks to Chicago Cross Cup for an amazing season! This was my first season of cross racing and I loved every minute of it – the thrills, the joys, the disappointments, the pain – and that was always just the first lap :-). I’m already looking forward to next year.
Its hard to believe that the Chicago Cross Cup 2015 season has come to a close. We want to thank all of the racers, fans, teams, sponsors, and CCC volunteers for giving us something truly special to photograph week after week.
We feel like the Montrose gallery is a fitting send off for this year. http://www.snowymountainphotography.com/Sports/Cyclocross/2015-Cyclocross/CCC1511Montrose/
As always, we hope you enjoy viewing the photographs as much as we did taking them. You ladies and gentlemen really are beautiful specimens of humans putting machines in motion.
Morleigh and Nathan
p.s. If you order prints now, they will arrive in time for Christmas.
Nathan your pictures are amazing, thank you for shooting and supporting the series!
Morleigh and Nathan, thanks for the cheers, the heckles, and most of all, the time and energy you take shooting photos of the whole series!
Thanks Nathan and Morleigh for all your hard work and amazing skill behind the camera!
Loved your pictures, especially the selfie and the Bay Watch re-enactment, and of course of Joe. Great work!
Thanks to everyone who helped put on this race and series! Sunday was fantastic, Montrose continues to be a must attend event both on and off the bike. Had a ton of fun on this course, the use of the sand in this edition was fantastic.
Here’s the Men’s 1/2/3 race.
Working my way through several thousand photos from Sunday and posting them on the Burnham Racing Facebook page. If you’d like a high resolution original file for yourself please just consider a small five dollar donation to Big Marsh. Thanks and congrats to all!
The Tipping Point team was generously gifted with not one, but two hard drive failures Thanksgiving week, plus an added bonus: 8 days of the flu! No photos were lost (thank goodness for the cloud), but I’m a bit behind wrapping up Indian Lakes and and it will take a week or so to get all Montrose photos up.
You can find everything here:
Will be all races except 35+.
INDIAN LAKES DAY 2: http://tippingpointphotography.zenfolio.com/ccc2015indianlakes
Every race was covered for Day 2 only. I’ve got up through W123s posted as of Tuesday evening 12/8.
