Organised by the Foyle Cycle Club, a criterium or “crit” is an intense road race on closed-off city streets. Both speeds and adrenaline will be high as riders must battle not only each other but the steep hills and narrow streets of the historic walled city for cash prizes and the honour of being crowned Derry’s fastest cyclist.
Huge crowds are expected at this year’s event, building on the excitement of the recent Giro D’Italia stages held in Northern Ireland. The circuit around the Walled City will become a high-speed thrilling spectacle and highly competitive cyclists from all over Ireland and the UK will take to the starting grid. Places still available in the A1-3 race and the A4, more details can be found on Facebook.
A full race pack with all relevant details including exact start times, distance and prize amounts will be sent to participants upon registration or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
