The NCC weekly training crits return to Hadley every Wednesday in June.

Many may remember that Al Donahue, and the JAM Fund used to host weekly training crits up in Montague for years. The Zoom Twilight Crits continue this weeknight crit series that is built around providing a space for new racers, and where we can come to cheer and watch fellow NCC members race.

Here are the details.


  • B race: Men’s & Women’s Category 4 & Novice.
    • The first 5 laps are controlled at 20-22 MPH and led by a member of JAM. Afterwards, that rider will ride behind the field at a steady 20-22 MPH.
  • A race: Men’s & Women’s Category 1-4


  • The course is a broad 0.5 mi loop within the Venture Way Center complex. Long and tight turns and a slight kicker, before ending on a quick straight-away.
