New in 2023, Brookfield quickly became a rider favorite! Near 180 degree turns and a long straightaway to the finish = surge-filled races and epic breakaways.

BROOKFIELD

Home to the second oldest velodrome in the country, Northbrook is a haven for cyclists! This course is technical, with a gorgeous park in the center to rest and relax between races.

Stevie came in 4th today in the cat 5 race (recap in Lombard story highlights) and was #notdropped - he even attempted to chase back the break. Most importantly, he looked much more pro than in previous days (we’re still working on the socks and cat 6 tattoo). Proud mom and dad Frankie were cheering him on lap after lap. We’re hoping for a podium by Fulton 🙌🏽 #letsgostevie @dupagesportscommission
