2017 Campton Cross Preview

October 26, 2017

PeeWee Tony

  • #CamptonCX is back, brought to you by Training Bible Cycling, Bicycle Heaven, and the CCC. It is one of the original ChiCrossCup races and the best Halloween party on two wheels.
  • The course will be back to it’s original direction and with a couple of fun little additions at Anderson Park in Campton Township (5N180 Brown Rd, Campton Hills, IL 60175).
  • Preliminary staging will be posted here on Friday: https://goo.gl/mQkuaE
  • There will be a food vendor on site selling brats (from Reams!), vegetarian chili, all beef hot dogs, sausage/egg/cheese croissants, muffins, fruit, pop and water.
  • The Costume Contest is on!!
    • Rule #1, you have to race in your costume.
    • Rule #2 is that there are no more rules.
  • There is plenty of parking on site. Please do not ride or drive on the grass surrounding the course. We hate having to kick our CX sisters and brothers off of the grass, and would doubly hate to have to use our potato launcher.
  • There is a bike path just north of the park that is great for a warm up.
  • The course: Running anti-clockwise with many of the classic rad Campton features and a new route through the woods. As always the final route could be different on Sunday.

  • Rob Kelley, Peter Kelley, and the entire Bicycle Heaven crew bring you the 11th edition of Campton Cross in beautiful Campton Hills.
  • Remember to use #camptonCX on Twitter and Instagram.
  • Need directions? Point yourself towards 4N930 Brown Road, St. Charles, IL. From I-90: Randall Road South, to Rt. 64 West, past LaFox Road, turn right onto Brown Road and park is up on your left.
  • Preliminary staging will be here.
  • Kids race starts at 1pm.
  • Remember reg closes 30 minutes before the scheduled start of each race. If you’re late, you’re not racing.
  • Race director Rob Kelley will be the judge in the annual costume contest.
  • Food Vendor is Bob’s Slow Food.
  • Sorry, but NO alcoholic beverages are allowed in the park.
  • The weather looks great again but a little chillier than last week.
  • Training Bible Cycling and Bicycle Heaven have increased the Cat 1/2/3 payouts to $700 total for each field, and paying out 8 deep
  • The Women Cat 3 field will again have their own payout! $200, 5 deep.
  • Rob and the crew encourage riders to NOT warm up on/around the soccer fields to the East of registration. The village has asked us to keep off the areas visible when you pull into the park. If you carefully ride North on Brown Rd for about 200 meters you can hop onto the Prairie Path/Great Western trail (see the thick yellow line in the map below) which is a great place to warm up. Thank you.
  • The Course: We’ll be reversing the course this year and relocating the log and bunny hops. Course preview: http://www.trainingbiblecycling.com/campton-cx-2016-course-preview/
