  • What is a criterium?

    A criterium, or crit, is a bike race consisting of several laps around a closed circuit (usually between 1 to 1.5km), often run on closed off city street or university area. 
 Race length can be determined by a number of laps or total time, in which case the number of remaining laps is calculated as the race progresses. Generally the event's duration (commonly one hour) is shorter than that of a traditional road race which can last many hours.

  • How does the point system work?

    The first, second, and third rider at every 5th lap gets 3, 2, 1 points respectively (with double points at final end sprint)
