We are excited to announce that the west suburban village of Lombard in DuPage County will be joining this year’s Intelligentsia Cup. This means there will be eight criterium and two road race venues for the 2019 series.
Longtime Chicago area racers will recognize Lombard as it has hosted multiple bike races in the past. As such, this race’s name will incorporate that legacy — The Lombard Cycling Classic presented by Discover DuPage County.
Founded 150 years ago, it is known as the Lilac Village. The race will take place on Tuesday, July 23. Details are still being hammered out but it will be an exciting downtown location featuring a technical course that will challenge all types of racers.
