Find Denver City Park Criterium Results and Photos
Did you know that the oldest continously ran bike race since 1971, Denver City Park Criterium, gets underway this Sunday! Even though the race always takes place in the course seems to vary often due to construction, permits or just plan change and this year's course will take place on the "Shorter Course" (see below).
Besides this race holding the title of Colorado's longest ran race they arguably have one of the best kids events of all the races. Every year there are tons of kids who show up to take a tour around the course once or maybe twice and everyone gets a ribbon and chocolate milk! I wish I got chocolate milk after my race regardless of how I finished. If you can't bring your children down to participate then the other great kids event is usually at the North Boulder Criterium
Due to unforeseen circumstances the City Park Criterium will only be raced on the shorter Western Triangle of the park. Registration and the Start Finish location will remain the same. The wheel pit will be moved to the start finish area.
Also, several racers in the 2009 Cat 2/3 race were subject to the officials neutralizing the finish. Nobody that was toughing it out in the hail enjoyed that outcome and RMRC will be issuing checks for $20 (last year's entry minus ACA charges) to those in the 2009 finishing pack. This will be taken care of at the registration site and will only be done for those present and participating in 2010. The Rocky Mountain Road Club is committed to providing top quality technical racing and we look forward to seeing those return that were affected.

RMRC is pleased to present the 39th annual fred prindle memiorial city park criterium! Back again is the long course around swan lake for groups starting before 1pm. It's approximately 3.1 km long and features 2 hairpin (> 90 degrees) corners. Races starting after 1pm run on the traditional, technical short-course of 1.2 km, with the 120 degree corner and two tight circles. Both courses fnish on the hardest false flat stretch in Colorado.
