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.
March 29 - June 21, 2023
For 2023 we will feature a 7 race points series, women's open races, and a new Team Competition! Registration will open 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 March 29, every other Wednesday through June 21.
We have Juniors, Women Open, category C (Novice and Cat 4 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.
Also featured this year is a new Team Competition points series to provide opportunity for every team, without overly weighting any particular category, to score points.
Separate from the overall individual series winner, teams of 5 members may compete for the team competition. Team's must register before the start of the series, be registered to the same USAC team, and wear the same kit.
Two team members per race may score points, with each racer only eligible to score points in one race - their best score counting towards their team tally. Team members score points by placing in the top 5 across any of the race categories during the night, with each category weighted equally.
