DTLA Summer Series - Crit#1 Course Map


The long awaited 6th Annual DTLA Grand Prix Summer Series is finally here.  This year we will have a couple of new courses along with a couple klassiks.  Back by popular demand, this Friday's race will be TUNNEL VISION!  The course had a huge turnout last year with Riccardo taking both the road and fixed categories.  Racers...make sure to get out there this week and run the course.


This year's summer series will be a bit different. As you all know, we are all working hard on bringing the "Westside Invite" to Los Angeles. So with that said, this year's Winners will take half of winnings, the other half will be donated to WILA 2012

Registration opens @ 7pm. Race @ 8pm.
Meet at the WALL (3rd & Kosciuzko)
