XXX Racing-AthletiCo found itself with a lot to celebrate Sunday. First Eileen Neville capped off her first cross season by winning the women's 4's state championship at Montrose Harbor, earning the Chicago Cyclocross Cup overall title to boot. At the same time, John Tomlinson was on the course winning the juniors race and earning a state championship of his own. That evening, Gigi Norcross accepted her award for winning the Illinois Cup for women's 4's, recognizing her achievements on the road in 2008. Finally, everyone on the team -- our members, our coaches, our sponsors and our families -- together took home the biggest award of the year when the Illinois Cycling Association named us Club of the Year. We're honored and delighted -- and already working to make 2009 even better.
