Another successful event, great weather this year to replace the rain of last year. We would still love to have more racers attend so we can share our prize pool with you. Keep telling all your friends about how much fun you had if you raced with us on the new course this year. Next year, no Fixed Gear conflict, guaranteed. Not sure about other out of stat race conflicts but hopefully we can offer you more and you will stay in MN in 2018. Thanks to all our attendees, officials, sponsors  and volunteers, see you next year!


On again for 2017 with a lot of the same great stuff as last year. We are working on a new course but will have the  same great sponsors, CARS Bike Shop in Mounds View and PJW Automotive in New Brighton, similar race fields/categories with a few minor tweaks to make sure we have a race for everyone, same great food from the Hickory Hog food truck and hopefully  weather that is more summer like with less moisture.

Yes we know the NSC Velodrome’s Fixed Gear Classic is also happening that same weekend, it starts Friday the 18th and finishes on Saturday the 19th with a rain date of Sunday the 20th. Both the Velodrome and us have talked it over and we don’t feel like there will be much of a rider conflict or overlap. The Mounds View Festival has only one day to run and that has always been the 3rd Saturday in August for the last 40 years and that means our Crit needs to be on that same day, the 19th. So much for short busy Minnesota summers trying to squeeze in a lot of race events.
