Press Release: New San Diego Criterium Series Kicks Off in 2016

posted in: News | 0


Three of the premier San Diego Criteriums have formed a consortium to create the 1st Annual San Diego Criterium Series. Barrio Logan Grand Prix on May 7, the Adrenaline Grand Prix on July 16, and the Carlsbad Grand Prix on July 17 make up this alliance. The series will showcase three regions of San Diego; south, central, and north county. All racers that participate in all 3 races will receive a pair of San Diego Criterium Series socks made by SockGuy (to be picked up at the Carlsbad Grand Prix). And winners of each category (awarded at the Carlsbad Grand Prix) will receive the exclusive SDCS Champion Jersey produced by ZOCA Gear. In addition, all 3 races are also part of the SoCal Cup so there has never been a better reason to visit and race in San Diego.

The competing categories:

  • Jr. M 15-16
  • Jr. M 9-12
  • Jr. W 9-14
  • Jr. M 17-18
  • Jr. M 13-14
  • Jr. W 15-18
  • Masters 35+
  • Masters 45+
  • Masters 55+
  • Masters 60+
  • Men Cat 3
  • Men Cat 4
  • Men Cat 5
  • Women Cat 3/4
  • Men Pro 1/2
  • Women Pro 1/2/3

Points for each of the 3 races distributed as follows:

  • 1st Place: 5 points
  • 2nd Place: 4 points
  • 3rd Place: 3 points
  • 4th Place: 2 points
  • 5th Place: 1 point

Those with the most TOTAL points after the Carlsbad Grand Prix wins the series and will be awarded the SDCS Champion jersey. In the event of ties, the last best result will be the tie breaker. If a racer upgrades in categories, during the series, their previous points will not go with them to their new category.
