The Midwest road racing action this weekend was dominated by the Tour of Elk Grove that takes place just to the west of Chicago. There is huge money for a weekend of essentially pretty dull crit racing on what seem to be rather unimaginative courses. However the cash brings all the US Pro teams out in force! Local representative in the cat 1/2 races had some success with Mike Sherer getting a big result by breaking into the top ten on saturday whilst Ryan Knapp (saturday) and Eric Hamilton (sunday) also took home a little cash for top twenty finishes. All the many guys must have wished they were lacking the 'Y' chromosome for the weekend as a paltry field of twenty Cat1/2/3 women racers competed for $8000 over the weekend! Nice payout for EVERYONE!!
