American Criteriums

In Partnership with CLIF Bar

Manual for Speed is once again committed to taking a studied and semi-comprehensive look at Domestic racing. In particular, criteriums. While criteriums and criterium-like races are held all over the world, they are, by all accounts, a uniquely American expression and/or manifestation of professional cycling. Clearly NASCAR is to car racing (in America) as Rodeo is to horse sport (in America) as crits are to bike racing (in America), it's just how we do shit: fast and rowdy.
