Event Overview

Listen, this is criterium racing. This isn’t waiting for two hours to see guys pass in 10 seconds. This isn’t a TV commentator trying to add color to a grueling 8% grade climb through the Alps. This is “What the heck was that?” followed by “$#!* Here they come again!”

And for that lethargic forty seconds the riders are out of sight on the backside of the course, the San Rafael Sunset voice and analyst, Dave Towle, is breaking down every nuance of what’s happening before your eyes.

And you have a beer in your hand. And a cowbell in the other...

This is a party. This is a nightclub on wheels, outdoors, under streetlights as dusk falls on an idyllic cityscape of Northern California in the summertime. This is one of the best annual events in all the Bay Area.

You don’t want to miss it.

Neutral Technical Support

Neutral Technical support will be provided by SRAM.

Event Start/Finish Line Area
