March 30:    Research Park Crit

2013-03-30

Flyer for 2013 Research Park Crit We would have loved to put the Stazio Crit on again after how successful last year was. Unfortunately, weather did not cooperate for March 10th, and the 30th has a softball tournament. So we are going back to the Research Park on Saturday, March 30. It'll be nostalgic. Check out all the details below, and share the race flyer with everyone you know!

The Course

A flat mostly oval, about 1km long. There are a couple water bars to look out for, but the turns are super smooth, so it will be FAST. Just watch out for the water bars on the front side of the course.

Directions

Ride your bike! You can take the Boulder Creek Path and navigate south to Discovery Drive and Colorado Ave. It's where the shorttrack series used to be. If you opt to drive, take Foothills Parkway (157) to Colorado Ave, turn west, and Discovery drive will be the first road to the north. DO NOT park along the curb on Discovery Drive, there should be plenty of parking in our lots. Registration is by the Start/Finish. You can't miss it as you drive to the parking lot.
