Event FAQs

The New West Grand Prix is a criterium or crit. It’s a mass-start bike race contested on a tight, closed circuit the riders will lap 40-60 times in about an hour. If that sounds a little like Nascar racing, it’s an apt comparison, complete with multiple lead changes, bunch charges to the line, pit stops, chills and spills.
