RACE YOUR BIKE WITH US

With a 20 year history, xXx Racing is Chicago’s premier development-focused amateur cycling team and we’re glad you’ve found us! Founded by bike messengers in 1999, xXx Racing is a 501c(3) organization that actively promotes bike riding and racing in Chicagoland through its many races, practices, and weekly team ride.

Although we are a racing team, our primary focus is on providing an environment for budding cyclists of all abilities to develop within the sport. Interested in developing riding skills and getting stronger? Our Saturday morning team ride, which has been running continuously for 15+ years, is a great way to start. Thinking about racing? Check out our LaBagh Practice Crits, where we host regular low-pressure practice races to help cyclists acclimate to riding in a pack environment. Do you want to become a part of a large, dynamic, and welcoming group of cyclists of all abilities? Come to a monthly team meeting or check out how to join our team.

MORE INFORMATION


xXx Racing-Athletico is pleased to announce the return of its LaBagh Woods practice criterium series for 2019. We’re starting on April 9th and running every Tuesday evening in April. Additional dates in May are possible pending construction activities by the Forest Preserve District of Cook County; more details will be available as soon as we know more. Riders must have an annual or one-day USA Cycling license. Please see our event page for all the details.

We are covering the $10 cost of the USA Cycling One-Day license to try to remove any additional barriers to entry for new racers. You can get this one-day racing license on-site at the LaBagh Practice Crits. You must allow extra time to fill out the license application and make payment before your race.

Friday Night (Jingle) Lights

Sep 26

 It’s 12:30pm on Friday when we roll up to the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Iowa City after making the 4hr trip from Chicago that morning. The sun is right above us but it really felt like we were on it. Phone says its 88 degrees out. I unload the tent, chairs, and water before we head back into town to Tiff’s parents house. Still 5 hours till my 6pm race and I don’t want to spend even 5 extra minutes in the heat if I don’t have to.
