The Zoom Mass Twilight Crit series bring all levels of racing fun to the Valley. The B race is a perfect first race for riders interested in trying out the sport. This race will be controlled at 20-22 MPH for the first 5 laps, and there will be a pacer for the remainder of the race that maintains that speed. Club and elite team members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about racing. This series is intended to be fun and welcoming. If you outgrow the B race, mix it up with the area’s best cyclists in the A race. Come join us and have a fun night out!
