Details

In association with the Singapore Cycling Federation and URA, Cycosports is happy to announce the trial of criterium racing as part of the URA Care Free Sundays. The trial is scheduled to kick-off at the 22 January event (pending final permit approvals).

The idea is to utilise the 1.7km Cecil / Robinson Road circuit from 6:00am to 7:30am with a half hour public transition to the opening of the official opening of the circuit at 8:00am. This is a great opportunity for the competitive cycling community to show case what bicycle racing is all about.

For the January event, there will be two 40 minute races of approximately 15 laps each. The first race (6:00am) will see the Juniors heading off first with a separate sub-race being the Women's open (starting 20 seconds behind). The second race (6:45am) will be a Men's Open event for 40 riders, selected partially on merit as well as 15 slots randomly selected if numbers of entries are over 40. Selection for the open event will be on the 16th January in conjunction with SCF.

 

 

Volunteers and Sponsors

These are non-profit events so we will be asking for the support of the larger cycling community to assist. We really need the support of the community in terms of volunteers as well as sponsors (monetary or products).

While the event is early, the streets are well lighted, so we hope the Singapore cycling community will come down and support / cheer on their fellow riders. It's only through showing that we have a vibrant and sharing cycling scene, will more opportunities come to the competitive cycling scene.

 

Beyond January

If we can collectively show the Singapore cycling community needs and wants regular criterium races that can attract a good spectator following from cyclists and the public, then we have a good chance of being a regular feature of the URA Car Free Sundays.

Q: Can I register on the day?
