For the second year, the Fitchburg Festival of Speed has been selected to host the Wisconsin Cycling Association of Wisconsin’s Criterium State Championships!
Championship riders will compete for $5,000 in prize money, but the event is just as thrilling for spectators, as they watch riders compete for the state champion title while reaching speeds of nearly 30 miles per hour! Criterium (“crit”) bicycle races are often described as NASCAR with bikes, so the event is sure to be exciting.
The championship race takes place during the annual Fitchburg Festival of Speed, an all-day celebration taking place at the Agora complex in Fitchburg on July 13, 2019, made possible by Race Day Events and the Fitchburg Chamber Visitor + Business Bureau. The event offers 5K and 1-mile runs, a 25-mile bike ride to explore the hidden secrets of the city, food carts and local beer, a family-friendly kid zone and a free concert with a major headliner, in addition to live music throughout the day.
