Indiana has a real lack of road racing this coming Memorial weekend so those people wanting to race in that arena will have a travel a little.
The major racing takes place over on the IA/ IL border where friday to monday racing brings out the regions best riders. None of these races have on-line registration so you'll have to eat to late fee. I guess the internet is only patchy in parts of Iowa.
Fri 28th- Burlington RR- Flat RR, not much more to say than that
Sat 29th- Snake Aley Crit, Burlington IA- Best crit you're likely to ever ride. Super hard but super fun, a block of cobbled climbing will do that for a race!
Sun 30th- Melon City Crit, Muscatine IA. Tough loop with a decent climb and a speed-bump to be taken at 40mph.
Mon 31st- Quad Cities Crit, Rock Island IL. Classic 8 corner crit with a big prize list.
For the older racer there are 3 crits in Wood-dale IL, just outside of Chicago.
On the dirt DRT Consulting are holding a race at the French Lick resort in preparation for the US Cup race that'll be happening later in the year. Apparently this is a sweet new-MTB-specific venue which is always nice to be seen developed.
