What Is CRIT Racing?
Criteriums, also known as "crits," are changing race culture for the better. Instead of slogging up remote mountains, CRITS speed through downtown streets like getaway cars, taking tight turns at 30mph with fields of hundred racers or more. The biggest events are late at night, under stadium lights enveloped by spectators with raucous MCs and light shows. The experience is delightfully manic. A lapped race on a closed-circuit set-in cities. Laps are usually a half-mile to 1.5 miles long, typically with 4-6 turns. Total race distance is usually 15 miles (beginner) to 60 miles (professional); approximately 25 minutes to 1 hour 55 minutes. Short and spicy.
