Presbyterian Hospital Invitational Criterium
EVENT DESCRIPTION: Celebrating its 10th year, it’s no wonder that the Presbyterian Hospital Invitational Criterium is a favorite of the best criterium riders, drawing 35,000+ spectators and one of the largest purses for a single-day criterium event. Held in Charlotte’s City Center, the race is a challenging 1.2 mile course that brings riders through the start/finish area 2 times per lap. Boasting one of the largest paydays in American criterium racing, the professional women and men competitors will compete for $75,000.
Sponsored by Presbyterian Hospital and benefiting The Brain Tumor Fund Carolinas the race will once again be part of the USA Cycling National Criterium Calendar and the USA CRITS National Series. This event has raised more than $5 million for the BTFC since the race’s inception in 2004.
