The mid-week criterium series is back in Bend, Oregon for another summer of great racing. We are excited to have our awesome title sponsor, Worthy Brewing, back with us for another year. This year's course will once again be held at Pacific Crest Middle School. Check out the course map and get stoked for some great summer criterium racing in Bend!

This is a points series with points awarded to the top 10 finishers in each race as follows: 16, 13, 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Your best 5 finishes will be used to compute your overall point total. The top 3 finishers overall in each category will receive prizes... and a little glory. As always, we also plan on having some cool schwag to give out as primes and weekly prizes.

Course Map

We will be racing in both directions around the new Pacific Crest Middle School (not shown on map yet). The race direction will alternate each week. This is a 0.8 mile, 4 corner course with a few "kinks" in the straightaways and some slight rises. A fast and fun course.
