The Design District Criterium: Event Preview


Victoria's shady backstreets are going to get another dose of track bike racing this June, with the inaugural Design District Crit on Saturday, June 23rd.


 Two races, one fixed-only, the second single-speed specific will run on a fast, .74km course encircling Vic's favorite brewery, Phillips

The 2012 Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn

Similar twilight fixed-gear crits are gaining in popularity globally. The perfect mixture of adrenaline, refreshing beverages, and an irreverent take on bike racing.

Our course features a slight rise in the finishing straight, some nasty pavement along the back, and lots of vantage points for voyeuristic spectating. 

 Come down for a film screening and crisp beer before hand, stay for the racing and after party. 

 Of course, you can always sign up to race!


More details forthcoming, including a few race warm up nights, and party details.
