This is guaranteed to be the funnest training crit you've ever done. Often emulated, this is the original. This is a track style points race with places scored every 5th lap. The top 4 places score points (5,3,2,1) with double points (10,6,4,2) scored on the finish. The overall places are based on accumulated points through the race, not your final lap position.
June 16 - August 11, 2021
For 2021 we are back! Registration opens at 4:45p and closes 15 minutes prior to a race start. First race starts at 5:30p and races are run in order as listed with less than 5 minutes between races. We will begin racing on June 16, every other Wednesday through August 11. While we normally begin with racing every week, transitioning to every other week, with 12 races scored for points and the thirteenth races resaved for a rain date, COVID has shortened our season but fortunately not canceled it for the second year in a row.
We have Juniors, category C (beginners and Cat 4,5 racers), Masters 40+ (Cat 3,4), Masters 35+ (Cat 1-4), B (Cat 3,4), and A (Cat 1-3) races. Number of laps ranges from 20-60 for the adult races. The first race is $20 with each additional race being $10. For more detailed information regarding events, please click on the flyer link above.
