It's always on my mind. Racing. USA Cycling announced the Nat'l Racing Calender for Criteriums. While most of these races don't affect me, it's good to see what races the pros will be at. Last year I did Relands Crit, Manhattan Beach, and Dana Point.
“Criterium racing is a discipline dominated by riders whose skill sets differ from those who dominate longer-format road races,” explains USA Cycling’s Managing Director of Events, Micah Rice. “We’re excited to give this uniquely American discipline, as well as its top competitors, a chance to shine on its own.”
