The Best of Championship Cycling

Hundreds will participate. At the end, five will stand alone as Triple Crown champions.

A championship event within a major cycling series is the easiest way to describe the DuPage Triple Crown. It all starts with Chicago Grit (formerly Intelli Cup) — one of the most respected cycling events in the United States. 10 continuous days of racing take place in different Chicagoland communities, three of which are criterium races in DuPage County:

Three DuPage locations, hence the DuPage Triple Crown.

Within the Chicago Grit series, the DuPage Triple Crown will be its own omnium — known in the cycling world as a multi-day event — to include the racers at Glen Ellyn, Winfield and Lombard in the following five categories: Women Cat 2/3, Women Cat 4/5/Jr, Men Cat 3, Men Cat 2 - Sponsor: Chem Station, Master 40+.  The omnium leader in each category respectively at Glen Ellyn, Winfield and Lombard will each receive a DuPage Triple Crown jersey.

The final scoring, using Chicago Grit’s collective points scoring method, will determine the five final DuPage Triple Crown champions — the rider in each of the five categories with the most collective points in the three DuPage races. The five winners will be crowned at the Lombard Cycling Classic, walking away with a cash prize and bragging rights as among the very best in competition.

The Best of Summer in Charming DuPage County

While we may be bias, we recommend carving out extra time to spend in Glen Ellyn, Winfield and Lombard, each offering their own community character. Few destinations elsewhere boast the small-town charm yet urban sophistication of DuPage County. Glen Ellyn was named Illinois' choice in USA Today's feature, Picturesque Small Towns in Every State!  Winfield, focused on development for resident and visitor enjoyment, puts major emphasis on the Winfield Criterium & Summerfest and is ready to showcase its warm and welcoming community to visitors. Whether you’re looking to sample craft beer, power shop at the expansive Yorktown Center, or have a little family fun, Lombard delivers.
