March 18, 2020: Following guidance from USA Cycling, WHO, and CDC, xXx Racing will be cancelling all in-person team events until recommendations change.This includes:
- Saturday Team Rides (held online via Zwift until further notice)
- Team Meetings - Held online via Zoom conferencing until further notice
- Criterium Clinic - Sunday, April 5th (cancelled)
- Lincoln Park Criterium - Sunday, April 26th (cancelled)

While there is no substitute for group riding and racing, we hope that we, as a team, can rise to the occasion and create meaningful community connection in ways that don't require group gatherings. We can utilize virtual cycling and/or video conferencing to continue our training and friendships while we are practicing social distancing.
Teammates, if you would like to host a group Zwift ride/race, a Zoom conference yoga class, or anything else please reach out to us and/or continue to utilize the ride board to post details.
Love and Bicycles to you all,

Details on in-person Team Meetings (currently held online only until further notice)
xXx Racing-Athletico meets once a month at Goose Island Brewing, 1800 N. Clybourn Ave. Usually this takes place at 7:00 p.m. on the first Monday of each month, but the date will occasionally change to accommodate holidays. Use our calendar to confirm the date.
Arrive early to order food and beverage in the meeting room. Goose Island is bringing in an additional server just for us! Please do not order from the main restaurant/bar. This will help our meetings start on time. We are also discouraged from bringing bikes inside.
Our management meets at the same location at 7 p.m. the Monday before each team meeting (usually the last Monday of the month). All members interested in contributing or learning more about how the team is run are welcome to attend.
