Fyxation Open fixed gear street crit is back! After the huge success we had last year we’ve teamed up again with the crew at Prairie State Cycling and Inteligentsia Cup and this year’s race will be bigger and better than last year. The Fyxation Open is a true fixed gear criterium and is held on the same race course as the SRAM Chicago Criterium on July 26th in the heart of downtown Chicago. The race is located in an industrial part of the city and takes place right outside the headquarters and brewing facility of Goose Island Brewing and Inteligentsia Coffee. Spectators are in for an exciting day of racing starting at 9 a.m. with a full expo area that includes great coffee and beer from Goose Island and Inteligentsia. The Fyxation Open will be held under USA Cycling permit no. 2015-49
Fyxation Open will now have 2 qualifying heats and a a final with racing spread out over the course of the day. Last year was the inaugural race and even though they only had about month to plan the event, riders from all over the Midwest came in force to compete in the Midwest’s first competitive fixed gear street criterium race.
