PRW Crit is back Saturday August 11th. We will be CLOSED Saturday and will be at the Crit so come on down and watch and bring the kids too.

Here are the details:

The Pedalhead Road Works Race Team as well as Lexus of Edmonton, including support from Da Capo, Chateau Lacombe, the ABA and the City of Edmonton, are once again putting on our Crit in beautiful Glenora. Chris Bolivar and Colin Bastarache did the legwork, so be sure to give them a shout out if you see them. Course design by Aaron Schooler so you know it will be fast and fun.

The Crit takes place Saturday August 11th. The course is a repeat of the super popular 2017 edition right in the heart of Glenora, and walking distance from downtown Edmonton. The course is smooth and fast, with plenty of cool corners to hang out on and take in the action.

Racing starts at 1:30pm and the last race goes off at 6:30 with Beer afterwards at Original Joe’s. We have some amazing prizes from our friends at SHIMANO, 7 MESH, CASTELLI, BBB, BIEMME, POC, MAVIC and lots more. Plenty of schwag to go around. We will also have industry reps out showcasing some of the latest bikes and cool stuff.

The PRW Race Series is a huge endeavour for a club with less than 20 people in it, and could not have been put on without help from the hosting communities. So please be respectful to all of the residents and spectators and please give a big thank you to all of the volunteers that are working with us, because, without their help, there would be no way that we could put on a weekend of racing like this one. Please don’t litter and pick up after yourself. This is a quiet community that is allowing us to race here and we all wish to continue to do so. Be respectable in manner and language please!!!

Sign On Sign On will be open from 12:00 noon and will close 10 minutes before the start of each race. Sign on will be located in the main staging area at the start/finish line.

Team Tents There will be an area available for team tents on Connaught Drive, less than 50 meters from the start / finish line, directly to the northeast. Please drop team tents here as this is the preferred location. You may also setup team tents in the parking lot of the Museum, but we would prefer tents near the start/ finish.

Parking There should be absolutely no parking in the Glenora neighborhood. Please park only in the old Royal Alberta Museum parking lot. Glenora is a small neighborhood and we should be respectful guests within this community
