Brief write-up of Criterium Race Format :
What is a Criterium?
It is race held on a short course (~1km), over a fixed duration of time (anywhere from 30-60 minutes), the winner being the rider who crosses the finish line first.

What does it mean to be "lapped" and "pulled"?
During a Criterium, if you fall out of the main group, dig deep to get back in or try hard to hold-off the field as long as you can, because if you get "lapped" (passed by the lead group after dropping out of the lead group), you are "pulled" (asked to withdraw from the race).

Why is the Criterium at Bhartiya City going to be awesome?
1. The course will be completely closed off to traffic!
2. We'll have some absolutely smooth pavement!!
3. Easy to spectate and cheer racers!!!

Race Notes :
  • It’s a pretty even and smooth road surface.
  • Water and refreshments will be available at the venue.
  • Riders are expected to be on self supported race mode including mechanical fixing, flat fixing, carrying their own toolkit, towing of the cycle if required etc.

BBCh Race Disclaimer :

Kindly note :
Bangalore Bicycle Championships is totally run by volunteers and we are extremely short of hands. In the event or pre-event or post-event there may be few human errors which are completely unintentional. To sort out those errors or issues we might take some time which may seem longer than usual but again that is because of the crunch of resources. We understand that these events are run by the registration fees collected from the participants and naturally the participants can expect the basic error free running of the event. But we sincerely request all to bear with us for any delay. Thank you for your understanding.
