The purpose of this series is to introduce criterium (crit) racing to new/beginner road cyclists and provide experience to existing racers in advance of the Provincial Crit Championships (to be held on the same course). There will be 3 abilities based groups of racers: Group 1 for beginners, Group 2 for existing racers in cat 4 and cat 5, and Group 3 for existing racers in cat 2 or cat 3. Women will be combined with men for all groups. Organizers reserve the right to combine groups as they see fit to provide a good racing experience. All groups will compete on the same course.
Location: south-west industrial area of Saskatoon (see map)
