Thanks to huge community support, the Wednesday criterium series returns to Bend, Oregon, as the Bend Criterium Series in 2019! We are sticking with much of what made the TFG Racing's series great in previous years. That includes the traditional course, which wraps around Pacific Crest Middle School. Check out the course map.
This is a points series with points awarded to the top 10 finishers in each race as follows: 16, 13, 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Your best 4 finishes will be used to compute your overall point total. The top 3 finishers overall in each category will receive prizes. Count on primes and weekly prizes.
All races will be held on Wednesday evenings. The race dates are listed below:
- June 19, 2019 -
