Race Info

Professional bicycle racing comes to the Village of Lake Bluff on Saturday, July 22, 2017. The “Northwestern Medicine Lake Bluff Criterium” will feature high-level amateur racing followed by professional men’s and women’s cycling teams with top pro riders from across the United States and many foreign countries.

A uniquely American style of bike racing, criteriums or “crits” are really fast and intense. Crits are run on a closed-off course often in and an around the central business district of a town. They are usually about a mile or so long; our racecourse is nearly 0.75 miles. This  type of short course gives cycling fans a chance to see the riders come around every few minutes.
