Cycling – Criterium
DATE: July 17, 2024
TIME: 8:00 AM
Criterium races are short and intense, so you need to be in good physical condition. To prep for your race, you have to become comfortable riding in a pack, weaving and bending with limited space and tight turns. At Butler Memorial Park, you will race past each forest and stream, enjoying the benefits of the paved, open track and leaning into each new challenge.
This is a timed event, 45 minutes on a 1-mile course through a local park and 2 city streets. There are 2 power climbs, a sweeping bend and 5 technical turns. Should prove to be fast and fun.
All riders must attend the pre-race briefing (rider’s meeting) held at the staging area prior to the competition. A protective helmet complying with current safety standards (SNELL ANSI / ASTM Certified), provided by the rider, shall be worn at all times when warming up or racing. A rider will be disqualified if he/she removes the helmet while on the bike. No clip-ons/aerobars allowed. All USA Cycling Rules will be followed.
