Visit Clarksville TennesseeClarksville, TN – Visit Clarksville and Riverside Bicycle Racing announce Clarksville’s first High Roller Criterium, or crit, will take place on Saturday, May 19th, 2018 in historic downtown Clarksville.

A criterium, or crit, is a bike race consisting of several laps around a closed circuit, the length of each lap or circuit ranging from about 500 to 1000 meters.

High Roller Criterium Bicycle Series Comes to Downtown Clarksville

“We are excited to host this new type of event in Clarksville,” said Visit Clarksville Board Chairman Jerry Allbert. “We’ve seen crits be very successful in other Tennessee cities and thought it would be a great fit to bring more people to Clarksville and to showcase our beautiful downtown.”

The event will launch from Downtown Commons, 215 Legion Street, and include live music, a food zone, kids races, family activities and an after party.

Eleven categories of races take place from 10:00am until 6:15pm, with race times ranging from 20 minutes to 60 minutes. Registration for adult competitions is $35.00 per race until March 15th, $40.00 until May 17th, or $45.00 the day of the race. Two youth-level races are $5.00 each. Individuals may register in advance at www.usacycling.org or in person on the day of the race.
