What is a Criterium? A Criterium is the short track speed skating of the cycling world. It is a fast paced multiple lap race on a short closed course. Racers reach higher speeds head-to-head along the course.

Bring your own bike (see requirements here) or use a demo bike - available to try for free at the festival from the Mud, Sweat and Gears tent!

Festival goers can compete in one of two race categories:
