2015 Randall Oaks Park Preview

  • #RandallOaksCX
  • Preliminary staging will be posted here.
  • This is a one-off CX venue as we wait for the dust to settle at Carpenter Park, so a rare chance to race the rolling hills of Randall Oaks. If you have trouble reading maps, search for the “Randall Oaks Petting Zoo” or set your GPS to 1180 North Randall Road, West Dundee, IL 60118.
  • Randall Oaks Park is hosted by Main St. Bicycles Sasquatch Squadron (owned by CCC series director and all-round awesome guy Jeff Provisor). Main Street Bicycles started  hosting their event in 2005!
  • Registration is on the South side of the park.
  • Bib #’s always on your left.
  • No dirt rollers, or corn maze, but a great variety of rollers to conquer, with a good mix of speed, off camber, and punchy climbs.
  • The driveway that takes you to the parking area is one way, and crosses the course twice in close succession, so please drive slowly and watch for the course marshal’s directions.
  • Parking will be a little tight, so please carpool if you can.
  • Dave’s Slow-Food will be serving up their awesome fare.
  • There is a no alcohol policy in the park, please respect park rules.
  • Porta-johns will be near registration.
  • There is a fee to visit the petting zoo, but there is a nice playground near the course and potentially a kiddie Strider event hosted by the park.
  • The Course: Obviously totally different from past years since the event is in a different park.
