The 2015 Littleton Twilight Criterium will be held Saturday, August 1. Visit the Littleton Rocks web site for race registration information, race details and volunteer opportunities.
More than 500 racers faced a challenging 1.6-kilometer closed-circuit courts through Downtown Littleton. Fields of up to 120 riders averaged 28 mph with top speeds more than 40 mph.
“Criterium racing is the cycling equivalent of NASCAR,” said Bill Nagel, co-owner of Pedal. “Racers are in large groups called a peloton and due to the closed downtown circuit, spectators are able to get in close and enjoy the excitement of racing.”
