Although it might look more like December than April outside, road racing season is coming soon!
Spring training races are a great way to boost fitness, skills, and confidence early in the season. Cyclists from Southeast Michigan have opportunities through Waterford Spring Training Series and Ann Arbor Spring Training Series but now there is an option for the West side of the state!
Ignite your event is hosting a series of “Saturday Showdown” criterium training races held at Kent ISD Knapp Campus (take note- some races are on Sunday!) These races are not sanctioned by USA Cycling so there is no license required to race. There will be an A and B race every week. The B race will be 45 minutes in duration and begin at 12pm. The “A” race will be 60 minutes and begin at 1pm.
There will be a race every weekend in April leading up to the Kent ISD Criterium on May 7 which is a USAC event.
Race dates are: Sunday, April 10th Sunday, April 24th Saturday, April 30th

The address for Kent ISD is located at 2930 Knapp St NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525
