19 teams join the 2019 series

10 men’s teams, 9 women’s teams #racefororange

Nineteen of America’s elite men’s and women’s cycling teams from 14 different states have been invited to participate as USA CRITS D1 Teams. The nationwide Series will focus on these D1 Teams as they #racefororange. The 2019 Series will continue to offer a season ending prize purse for teams and individuals while streaming all the races on USACRITS.tv.

“We are creating a model that works. We need defined teams racing across America with storylines fans can follow and solutions to allow them to watch and keep up with their favorite teams,” said Scott Morris, Director of Development. “We really appreciate these teams joining us on this journey.”

2019 marks the 13th year of the USA CRITS Series, the premiere cycling series in the United States. Criteriums are the most spectator-friendly and enduring form of cycling racing in America. USA CRITS is unique in that some of America’s most vibrant downtown districts are showcased by working with locally originated events, combining the highest levels of cycling with community gatherings and street festivals.

“We are in our second year of redeveloping the Series to help achieve a sustainable model for cycling. Last year, we created the USACRITS.tv platform and streamed more cycling races than ever in American history. This year, our focus will be getting more eyes on those streams and increasing the number of domestic teams able to race a national calendar by putting more financial support directly back to those teams,” added Morris.
