Hi, left my black and grey TwinSix jacket at the start grid. If it’s in Lost and Found then awesome. If not I’m the West Town Bikes dude/guy who wears the dress shirt during the 3’s… so you next week.
Anyone happen to grab my Franco bikes/brightleaf Homes winter jacket and warmup pants? I left them at the start grid last race in Bartlett

I’ll post some stills as well.
Cool video. Thanks for putting it together.
Here is the 45+ race from the back of the pack.
Handup hunting in the Men’s Cat 4/5.
Check out the haunted garbage can @ 18:57
No rear-view angle as it was mud covered during the single speed. My single speed video should be up sometime on Tuesday.
Also want to say thanks to all those sticking around for the last 4/5 event of the day. It was windy and chilly but the fun course layout and crowds make it worth it.
I enjoyed our casual stroll through the first forest area.
Yep. I also enjoyed the forest creatures we encountered.

Thank you to everybody from CHI CX Cup and everybody who helped put Campton Hills together. Great event!
I just replied to the wrong comment!
Lost white KASK helmet. My thick skull can only do so much.
It was found – and is with the Lost and Found goods in the equipment white trailer. It’ll be there this weekend.
A friend of mine from outside the bike world has recently been struggling with devastating news. His wife has been diagnosed with a rare blood disease and his 3 adorable kids are scared and confused. I invited to come watch the races since he lives nearby.
He wasn’t sure they’d be able to make it.
But they did.
Overwhelmed at first, I gave them a quick lesson in heckling. “what did you have for breakfast?”. “Egg.” “Perfect, every time someone goes by you say “you’re an egg”. They laughed, giggled and yelled through 2 races, until the 4/5s started when the rain and wind picked up and it got too cold for them.
Deep, meaningful thank you from “Dad” as they were leaving. “Wow,” he said, “everyone here is so nice.”
I got a “What Pressure You Running” for the 3 year old (the one that had “egg” for breakfast).
Text from Dad later that evening, “Luke will not take off his new T-shirt! Demands to sleep in it!”
For a few hours yesterday life was normal again for this family.
Thank you to all you good people and Long Live the Chicago Cross Cup!
Great stuff… Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for putting it on, folks. Always a fun one.
Sorry I ate all your mud.

Any chance a red Specialized jacket made it to the lost and found? Forgot to grab after the race. Thanks for putting on a great race today, as always well done
There’s a very good chance of it – as there were quite a few found. I remember seeing a red one, but cannot comment on the exact brand, etc.
Cat 4/5 – rain at the start made the first lap noticeably slicker than the Cat 4 race
Really liked this course…being a newbie at CX the Well-Fit CX practices are helping with my handling. Will see how I do next Sunday. Thanks for all your hard work setting up and tearing down the event!
Super anxious to see how my costume looks on the bike! Thank you for all the photogs out there!
what fun day it was! loved the course and the wind made it really challenging.
Did anyone grab a pair of black pactimo leg warmers after the SS/Junior race? I left by the start and checked back right after my race and they were gone. Thanks!
Some snaps from the Masters races, and some random fun from the morning.
Here’s my GoPro videos from the men’s cat 3 and single speed races:

Thanks to everyone once again for putting on a great Campton CX race! Always one of my favorites of the year! Kudos to all the folks who outdo themselves with the costumes and show just how fun the CX scene really is. I wish it was halloween CX every week 🙂

Excuse low light blurring of some. Just say you were moving too fast…
Thank you! Is there a way to tag you for credit on Instagram?
Actually I have no idea. Sorry.
Thanks all! Had a great time!

This list is a primer. We all know the number 1 thing to do is this weekend! https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g36910-Activities-Woodstock_Illinois.html
45+ First two laps or so.
Video of single speed with front and rear view camera angles. Rear view mostly mud free until second lap.
