Fat Tire Criterium Finals: 4:40 p.m. Downtown Athens
There is a NEW Time Trail Course this year! Riders will start the 2.1 mile course at the intersection of Drive-By Truckers/Widespread/Panic. Riders will race down Panic and go under the Trail Creek Street Bridge. Next they will continue through the power line clearing and turn right at the the Boyscout Bridge to head toward Trail Creek Street. Riders will then cross Trail Creek Street and continue on Drive-by Truckers until that reach the finish line at the Drive-By Truckers/Widespread/Panic intersection where they began.
Top 50 times across all categories will qualify to race in the Scott Mountain Bike Finals Criterium, which will be held on the downtown 4-corner Twilight course and will be 20K long (20 laps). Payouts will be determined based on the number of entrants.
In an effort to make this a true mountain bike race, riders will ride the same bike for the Criterium as they ride for the Time Trial, except tires may be switched out.
- Gears and chain rings can NOT be switched out.
- No drop bars will be allowed.
- Tire width has to be at least 1.5 inches.
- Slick tires are allowed.
- Please plan to be there early so that they can stay on schedule.
Day of registration starts at 7:30 a.m. Racing starts at 9 a.m. Only check and cash will be accepted as payment on Saturday for on-site registration.
You can pre-register online. There is a $10 late fee for day-of registration. Any racer who does not have a USAC license will have to purchase a $10 1-day license onsite.
