For the second year we arrange a short but intense fixed + gear criterium in Varberg by the sea.

På svenska



What is a Criterium?

Criterium is a type of bicycle race where the cyclists  ride several laps around a a closed circuit.

A criterium is closer than a normal bicycle race, most often under one hour. This allows a greater speed. A city track with sharp corners requires physical fitness and good acceleration after the curves.

When does it start?

The 11th of May. More information for 2019 is coming soon.

Do you need to be a pro?

Absolutely not! It’s a advantage if you have some racing experience. But if not, you’ll get experience here. It’s important that you have a bike where you feel comfortable in tight corners and fast straights.

Do I need a helmet?

Yes! And you race at your own risk.

How old do I have to be?

You need to be 18 and understand that you race at your own risk.

What if I don't have a bike?

We have no possibility to offer bikes. But as addicted to the Swedish craigslist ”Blocket”, we always say that the perfekt bike is out there.

What do you mean ``quarter mile`` - and why is the track so short?

Normally a criterium is 500 to 1500 metres. But since we have a very restricted area, our track is 402 metres – a quarter mile. But make no mistake, it vill be tough!

How difficult is the track?

The shortness is both a blessing and a curse. Acceleration and slowing down all the time is demanding. But the track is easy to learn and gives a good overview.

The most important thing is endurance.

Can I take part in both FIXED and GEAR?

Yes! If you have two bikes. There is a special ticket that includes both classes – for the price of one!

I have a single speed...

If it has free wheel and brakes, you compete in GEAR. If it has no free wheel and no brake, you compete in FIXED.

What do I win?

Eternal fame! And a gift from our sponsors.

How do I find the race?

It’s here: 57.103949, 12.241268

At Strandgatan i Varberg, Sweden

What happens when I buy a ticket?

You’ll get an e-mail with confirmation and the ticket. When you arrive at racing day you’ll get your starting number and more information.
