College Park Criterium

Join us for criterium 2.0 in College Park on Sunday. Named Georgia’s Global City, College Park boasts first-class amenities, booming businesses, and close proximity to the world’s busiest airport. Cyclists will zip through the historic streets of downtown College Park on an exciting city block course where fans can get up-close and personal with passing riders. Whether you’re racing or watching, we hope you’ll also enjoy the festivities of the day including live music and tasty food trucks. For even more thrills, the day will feature mountain bike trials performances with riders doing mind-blowing jumps and tricks most thought unimaginable. And have you ever wanted to learn how to do a wheelie? We believe this should be common knowledge for adults and kids alike, so make sure you and the whole family attend the wheelie seminar.

Featuring

  • Live music by Atlanta favorite, The Michel Jons Band –Link »
  • Food Trucks
  • Mountain bike stunt performance by professional stunt rider, Joe Janicki – Check out the video »
  • Pump Track. A circuit of banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by riders “pumping” – creating momentum by up and down body movements – to keep their momentum around the circuit.

Race Course Description: A six-corner circuit through the downtown streets of College Park, with a screaming fast backside and a challenging uphill finish.
