Criterium racing returns to Burns Park starting with "C" group racing tonight at 5:15. The crits move to Tuesday nights this year and will continue for the next 5 weeks.
Criterium racing is spectator friendly, as most of the course can be seen from the start-finish line.
Judging by the large fields at the Rock City racing downtown crits a couple of weeks ago, I expect big fast packs and some throw-down racing. Ride on over to the Burns Park soccer complex to see what it's all about or to join in the racing. You'll just need a few bucks for entry and a one day license, a road bike, and the motor, nerve, and bike handling skills to roar full gas through tight turns shoulder-to-shoulder and wheel-to-wheel with a bunch of your peers.
