Relay Cross 2018! August 26

Since 2010 this event has been a popular and fun way to kick off the cyclocross season. After a Le Mans start, teams of two riders alternate laps on a traditional cyclocross course. At the end of each lap, riders high-five their waiting partners, who leap into action to contest the next lap. Fields are available for men, women and juniors as well as the popular co-ed category.

Returning for 2017

xXx Racing-Athletico is dedicated to supporting bike racing in and around Chicago by hosting races and supporting other organizations that help to build and maintain the amazing cycling and racing communities in our area. This year, we are raising funds to help further this mission through what we believe will be a fun new addition to our RelayCross race: Relay Roulette!

For this race, riders must be pre-registered, but will only find out who their teammate is on race day. The reg fee will be $5/rider, and all proceeds will be donated to a local cycling-related charity. The winning team will get to decide which charity gets the prize. We have a field limit of 50 teams for this race, which means if it fills up, there will be at least $500 to donate to a worthy cause!

Mark your calendars and follow us on Twitter, where we’ll announce the opening of registration. The 2017 version will take place Sunday, August 27 and the Co-Ed fields in particular always fill quickly.

Driving Directions

Relay Cross takes place at Jackson Park. From Lake Shore Drive take Hayes Drive west. Parking lot will be on right. Park is south of Museum of Science and Industry.
