Practice Crits Return to Chicago

xXx Racing-Athletico is pleased to bring back a series of three practice criteriums to Chicago, with the cooperation of Chicago 10th Ward Alderman Susan Sadowski Garza. The practice crits are on the same “Hot Dog” course first launched by the Intelligentsia Cup in 2014.

Practice crits are an important tool to introducing riders to the thrill of bike racing, in a less competitive and safer environment. xXx Racing is excited to again offer an opportunity for racers to come out and practice crit racing three times in one night!

Practice Crit Details

We are hosting three practice criteriums over three months, with the race-evening schedule the same for each.

  • Thursday, April 27

The Hot Dog practice crits features a 0.8 mile (1.3 km) loop along Chicago’s lakefront. Cyclists will negotiate an easy course featuring two 180-degree turns separated by a 1/4 mile straightaway.
