We had lots of race action, music and fun in 2017!
A “criterium” race is defined as a timed circuit around a short, technical course. Spectators can watch the racers fly by the 0.8 mile course at nearly 30 mph! The event is part of USA Cycling’s National Calendar. There will be six total races, highlighted by the Men’s and Women’s Professional races under the lights.
We had entertainment!
Race spectators danced the night away with an old-school rock band, a Police tribute band and one of Denver’s top party bands:
- Blinker Fluid
- Message in a Bottle
- Home Slice
