Winston-Salem Cycling Classic
EVENT DESCRIPTION: The Winston-Salem Cycling Classic, a USA Cycling-sanctioned event with a total purse of approximately $50,000, will take place April 18 and 19 in Downtown Winston-Salem, N.C., and surrounding areas. This year’s Winston-Salem Cycling Classic will feature more racing and more visibility for the event that features one of only two UCI women’s races in the United States.
NRC/UCI road races for men and women take place Friday, April 18, with NCC/USA CRITS Series races for both the following day. Interspersed between those events are USA Cycling-sanctioned criteriums, the return of last year’s popular gran fondo and plans for live, online streaming of select races.
Saturday’s pro criterium for women begins at 4:45 p.m. and at 6 p.m. for pro men, both on a 0.9-mile loop through downtown. A 50-mile and 80-mile gran fondo in the morning and a special USA Cycling criterium in the afternoon precede both pro races. Live music from three bands will provide additional entertainment.
