World-Class Bike Racing in Evanston

With a lot of things going on in town, many were unaware that Evanston this last Saturday hosted the NorthShore University HealthSystem Grand Prix, part of the International Cycling Classic. Some of the action is below. In the first, the leaders and pelleton pass twice by the reviewing stand and finish line during the Cat 3 Men's race. This is early in the race, with Chicagoan Jacques Cartier of XXX Team Athletico in the lead. In the second video, the pack navigates the tricky turn by the Burger King at Clark, dodging a fall by one of the Woodcock Cycle Works team.
