Saturday July 17: Main Street Criterium

The Butler Main Street Criterium is a 1.0 mile course, with 6 - 90 degree, and 1 - 180 degree turns.

Race Lengths will be based on Time.

Uni's (2 fields)   (12:30 - 1:30 pm)
Men 4/5            (1:45 - 2:15pm)  (30 min)
Men 40+            (2:30 - 3:10pm)  (40 min)
Women Open     (3:25 - 4:00pm)  (35 min)
Men 3                (4:15 - 5:05pm)  (50 min)
Men 1/2/3         (5:20 - 6:50pm)  (90 min)

The "Lollipop" style course starts off from Diamond Park, across from the Butler County Courthouse, and heads downhill on Main Street to a 180deg turn at the north end of town.

Once completing an "about face", riders then head back uphill (south) back towards Diamond Park and the eventual Finish Line.

With a sharp 90deg RIGHT turn, the race then traverses two sectors of brick pave "cobbles", forming more of a HAMMER head than the business end of a "Lollipop"!

Covering less than 0.2 miles, this BRICK HAMMER presents the riders with four, quick succession, 90deg LEFT hand turns, taking them around the Courthouse then around Diamond Park, before spitting them back onto Main Street with one last 90deg RIGHT. 

It won't take too many laps around the Hammer before the legs will FEEL like the Bricks they are riding over!

Then, Rinse & Repeat!

This fast and technical course will be GREAT for spectators!
