– While everyone is watching the TdF or trying not to melt we’ve been busy prep’ing for the 2012 season deep in the CCC evile lair. We don’t have too many public updates this week but look out in the weeks to come.

– Calling all sponsors!!! If you’d like to join the CCC sponsorship family our 2012 Series Sponsorship Proposal is now available.

– Speaking of family, we’re always looking for a few dedicated series volunteers to help with various activities on race day. If you’d like to join the fun and race for cheap let us know.

– Need gear? The CCC still has a decent supply of SockGuy socks, Contigo coffee mugs, and Mad Alchemy embrocation. If you’d like some goodies check out on the store page and then shoot us an email at ChicagoCrossCup at gmail.

– And finally… Congratulations to CCC rising star Paul Mumford who (among other high placings this summer) finished an impressive 9th at last weekend’s USAC Cross Country mountain bike national championships in Sun Valley, ID. Fire It Up!
