Relay Cross is coming!

http:// - xXx Racing-Athletico is excited to announce the return of Relay Cross, a two-person team relay cyclocross race. Get your teams together and register before the fields fill up! We are looking forward to kicking off the cyclocross season with you on Sunday, August 29th. Registeration is live, and available spaces will fill up quickly! Check out some race videos from our friends Rachel and John Gatto from years past.

Register for Relay Cross here!

We need your help at Relay Cross - - We are going to need "all hands on deck" at Relay Cross to set up the course in the morning, monitor the course during the races, and tear down and pack up afterwards; please help us out by volunteering for one or more the available shifts. Sign up here:

How does Relay Cross work?

You and a partner take turns racing laps around the cyclocross course, tagging each other at the end of each lap. It's really that simple. It is the most laid-back, low-pressure introduction to cyclocross and the cyclocross season around!

Relay Cross Partners

Don't have a Relay Cross race partner to race with? Please let us know, and we will try our best to help you find a race partner! There are co-ed, men's, women's (W/F/T), juniors, and master's (35+) races, so there is something for everyone, and there are opportunities to race multiple times throughout the day.

Relay Roulette Charity Race

As part of Relay Cross we have a fundraising race, Relay Roulette, where two riders are paired together at random for the race and all the entry fees ($10/rider) are donated to a Chicago-area cycling non-profit as chosen by the race's winning team. Since 2016, you have helped us raise over $4,500 through Relay Roulette for local cycling non-profits like West Town Bikes, Blackstone Bicycle Works, Experimental Station, and the Ed Rudolph Velodrome Northbrook Cycling Committee. If you sign up to race any of the Relay Cross races, you are eligible to register for the Relay Roulette race for just $10.
