City of Lakeport, California

Lakeport Downtown Criterium
7/15/2017, 8:00 AM-5:00 PM

What is a Criterium you ask? ” Listen, this is criterium racing. This isn’t waiting for two hours to see guys pass in 10 seconds. This isn’t a TV commentator trying to add color to a grueling 8% grade climb through the Alps. This is “What the heck was that?” followed by “$#!* Here they come again!” And for that lethargic forty seconds the riders are out of sight on the backside of the course, Nor Cal cycling’s most renown voice and analyst, Martin Scheel, is breaking down every nuance of what’s happening before your eyes. And you have a beer in your hand. And a cowbell in the other… This is a party. This is a nightclub on wheels, outdoors, under streetlights as dusk falls on an idyllic cityscape of Northern California in the summertime. This is one of the best annual events in all the Bay Area. ” This will be Lakeport’s first EVER Downtown criterium cycling race. Elite athletes from all over Nor Cal will descend on the streets of Lakeport to battle it out “NASCAR” style on city streets for cash and prizes. Local brewery will have a beer garden, and other vendors will be present for this festival like cycling event. A MUST SEE for locals and out of towners alike!
