BRIGHTON - The American Cycling Association is coming to Brighton.
Whether you are a competitive rider or a beginner, the American cycling organization will provide an opportunity to participate in its first-ever criterium at the Prairie Center, Interstate 76 and 144th Avenue, April 10.
Registration opens at 7 a.m. the day of the race and close 20 minutes before 10 a.m., when the first race is set to begin. The fee to race is $25. For those who want to do a second race, the fee is $10.
The event is promoted by Big Shark P/B THF Realty, which said it was happy to help bring this event to the town of Brighton.
“This is something that has generated about 300 to 500 participants on a weekly basis,” Dan Schmatz of THF Realty said. “It’s a good family event, and it caters to riders of all levels.”
Schmatz said the location of this criterium is great as well. The course will be set up at the Prairie Center and will offer a fast, technical, one-mile loop, six turns and wide sprints.
“Having it at the Prairie Center was a great idea because it's close to everything,” Schmatz added.
Weekly vendors and tenants have been invited to sell food and drinks at the event, but it’s unclear how many vendors or participants will be there until the day of the event.
Riders must have an ACA license in order to participate.
A one-day license can be purchased on the association's Web site – www.americancycling.org – for $10.
