May 2nd and 3rd. River Market and Soma.
Last year's Rock City Races coincided with the Southwest tandem rally to make pack downtown Little Rock and the surrounding roads with all sorts of two-wheeled excitement! The two-seaters are not back this year, but Rock City Racing is on for this weekend!
Racing takes place in the River Market District Saturday afternoon, beginning at 1:00 PM. On Sunday, the action moves to SoMa, kicking off at 9:00 AM with the last race rolling at 1:00 PM
Dugan's Pub and other stops along the course were packed with race fans (well, maybe some beer fans) on Saturday. Sunday morning was more of a coffee crowd, but the neighborhood turned out in force to cheer the racers on.
Crit races bring a great vibe to downtown, with fascinated tourists joining locals fans in encouraging the fast packs and the break-aways. Bring your cow bells!!!
