2011 SmokeFree Perth Criteriums – 12 to 15 February 2011

Fremantle gets added to the 2011 SmokeFree Perth Criteriums race series which opens on Saturday February 12, 2011 in Northbridge and closes in Fremantle on Tuesday February 15, 2011. In between there will be two other crits in Victoria Park and Leederville.

Criterium racing is the most exciting version of road racing. Each race involves high speed and intense competition, around a tight and intimate circuit. No rider is guaranteed a win and no spectator walks away disappointed, which sets the scene for a perfect week end of racing.

A Criterium is a fast paced, multi lap cycling race on a tight and relatively flat street course. The course is approximately 1km in length. Criteriums are raced over a specified time rather than a distance with the races lasting no longer than 1 hour.

Most venues give spectators the opportunity to see a high portion of the course with the circuits being tight and intimate. Tactics are usually played from start to finish; so spectators are more than entertained for the entirety of the race.

Each rider receives points for placing in the top 10 of the race and these points accumulate to decide the overall winner. With a large calibre of cyclists in the event, the overall winner is often not decided until the final race.

The timetable of events is as follows:
