Mundelein has been selected as a host site for a day of professional and amateur bicycle races as part of the prestigious Intelligentsia Cup. The Intelligentsia Cup is a week-long series of bicycle races occurring across Chicagoland, with each day’s races occurring in a different community, and draws elite racers from across the country as well as internationally. This race discipline, called a “criterium,” involves timed races on a short loop course to maximize spectator visibility and increase excitement.
Racing will take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on a closed course. Estimates indicate that the event will draw up to 800 racers and more than 1,000 to 2,000 spectators throughout the day! There are race categories for juniors, men, and women: all of which include additional categories for amateurs and professionals. In total, there will be about 10 races throughout the course of the day, with each race category lasting from 30-90 minutes. This event is much more than a bicycle race; it is designed to be a community festival with many surrounding activities to create a great experience for spectators and families alike. A beer garden, music, vendors, children’s activities, and more are being planned to make this a fun day for all.
