It’s Tour Time

Tour de France

Winfield Criterium – This race has become a local favorite. The course winds its way through a suburban neighborhood, climbing to its highest point and then descending down to the start/finish with a few twists and turns. It’s fun and challenging. For race information, click here.

Wisconsin State Road Race Championships – It’s back to Spring Prairie for a climbing-fest for the state’s championship jerseys. It’s also back to a retro course, which features a flat start/finish line instead of a hill. Are you up for the challenge? For race information, click here.
