Fat Tire Crit

Pro Fat Tire Criterium

Crits, or criterium, were a tradition started in Europe so rabid cycling fans could catch more than just a fleeting glimpse of their favorite racers.

The Fat Tire Crit is open only to pro level event participants.

Registration + Helmet Required

Although registration is free, it’s still required of all that plan to enjoy this whimsy opener to the Pro race. Located in the event hub between Noon-5:45p Friday, we encourage all to show up early and decorate their bike with Rocky Mountain Health Plans. Participants will get a paper number plate to write a number, slogan or if artistically gifted, a mural on. Creativity is highly encouraged and may even be rewarded.

Start Times

6:15p – Women’s Pro Race – 20 minutes + 3 laps
6:50p – Men’s Pro Race – 20 minutes + 3 laps

Crit Course

Starting and finishing on Main Street, the Klunker Crit winds its way through downtown Grand Junction on a flat course with 10 total turns. A portion of the course runs right down the lightly meandering and tree-lined Main Street, where spectators can dine and drink while having a front row seat to all the action. There are a number of cowbell friendly areas all around the course. Reference the map below to determine where you want to be when it comes time to enjoy an evening of celebrating and bike racing in downtown Grand Junction.

Klunker Crit

The Klunker Crit, on the other hand, is far from a pro event. It’s for everyone. Think of it as a kid’s race for adults. The Klunker Crit is guaranteed to be a great time for both participants and spectators.

Come for the crit, stay for the cowbell.
