Winfield marked its 100th birthday in style Sunday, pairing its Summerfest celebration with the criterium bike races that have become a popular tradition in the community.

Local pro cyclists as well as some top amateurs zipped through town all day in fast-paced races on the short circuit, while hundreds lined the course cheering them on.

 

Away from the races, Summerfest celebrated the community's centennial with food trucks, family games, a classic car show and a historical re-enactment of Winfield's incorporation.

The Intelligentsia Cup continues Monday with the inaugural Mundelein Grand Prix, followed by races Tuesday in Lombard, Thursday in South Chicago, Friday in Elgin, Saturday in Lake Bluff and Sunday in Chicago. For more about the races, visit intelligentsiacup.com.
