Criterium races are the most spectator-friendly and enduring form of cycling racing in America. Locally-originated races combine the highest levels of cycling with urban street fairs and festivals, while showcasing some of America's most vibrant downtown districts.

“Creating a platform for fans to engage the sport and to follow the athletes is essential for developing recognizable athletes and sustainable growth which will support the professional ambitions of elite cyclists,” said Scott Morris, director of development for USA CRITS.

Fans can support this goal and follow the Series and the athletes by subscribing to a new live stream and athlete content package, available after the first of the year, which will include not only USA CRITS Series events, but additional broadcasts of non-Series races.

With a majority of the revenue allocated to the Series events and overall prize money, fans will have a direct impact on keeping the sport of American criterium racing alive and growing.

All events will be live streamed on, featuring host city and participating rider highlights, on-board live action cameras from within the race field, automated lap-by-lap results, and of course, fast-paced criterium racing.

Not only will subscribing fans have access to the feature-packed event streams, but Video on Demand content will include D1 Team and rider components, race recaps, and full-length archived Series races.
