The USA CRITS Championship Series seeks to assemble the best and most exciting cycling spectator events in America and works to develop iconic riders that excel in American criterium racing.
The GGP is proud to be the seventh event in 2016 on the USA-wide series. This is the fourth year that the GGP has been on the USA CRITS calendar.
The Glencoe Educational Foundation (GEF) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1996 to enhance the rich tradition of educational excellence in Glencoe School District 35. The GEF sponsors projects that sharpen the classroom experience and funds these projects through a variety of programs and events that benefit all of Glencoe. The GEF also promotes the value of education by supporting schools beyond Glencoe that are in need of assistance.
Once again, the GGP will highlight the GGP racers of tomorrow by offering our popular kid races. The races, scheduled to begin at 12:00PM, will follow the same format as last year. There will be a race for 4 and 5-year olds, (down the finishing straightaway) one for 6 and 7-year olds (further down the finishing straightaway), and one for 8 and 9-year olds from Park and Vernon down to the finish line. This is one of the GGP's finest and most fun traditions and is not to be missed!
After watching great cycling all day, it is time to break out the air guitars and get busy! The after party - sponsored this year by Wintrust Bank - begins at 5:00 PM in Village Court Parking lot.
