The professional women’s race includes a high speed 25-mile race and a $12,500 purse. The professional men’s race includes a high speed 62-mile race and a $12,500 purse. The course circles the heart of one of America’s greatest small towns during the renowned Doylestown Arts Festival.
This particular race is a criterium, a style stemming from the wildly popular indoor track racing in Madison Square Garden from the 1890’s through the 1920’s. Criterium racing typically consists of 25 to 50 laps of a one-mile racecourse. Criterium racing defines America’s appreciation of professional cycling.
