We realize that "prizes three deep" is sometimes code for "socks and an energy drink." That will not be the case at Sunday's inaugural Cyclocross Relay Race, which may boast the most valuable prizes of any cross race in Illinois. Among the top prizes: Masters will race for coffee brewing kits and beans from Intellegentsia. Women will battle for custom paint jobs from Chester Cycles. The 1/2/3's will throw elbows to score fits from Get a Grip Cycles. And the co-ed teams will do it in the dirt to win these amazing, one-of-a-kind bags from Seagull Bags. In addition, our goodie bag will be full of valuable treats from Enzo's, I-Go, Labrabbit Optics, DZ Nuts, Twin Six, Faction Cycling, Kozie Prery and other fine supporters of cycling. But wait! There's more! Anyone who pre-registers will be entered into a drawing for a custom Tati frame. (Important: Even though juniors race for free, they must pre-register to be entered in the drawing.)
