This event is apart of the The Ontario Criterium Series that stretches from Ottawa to Windsor. Double series points will be offered to riders that addend the Preston Street Criterium and/or the Tour di via Italia. Over $50,000 in prize money is up for grabs over the course of the series. That doesn’t include a purse of over $4,000 for the overall series winner which will be given out at the end of the series in Windsor!
The Nationally Sanctioned Fieldstone Criterium will be host to the inaugural 1.2km downtown Cambridge Criterium Bike Race that will navigate over 2 bridges sprawling over the famous Grand River. Church spirals of Central Presbyterian and other wonderful old churches form an impressive backdrop much used by the film industry in Canada that cyclists will ride by on this stunning course. The course reminds us of the Grand Tour events in Europe and is why we feel this event will be unmatched in Canada and Ontario for its stunning beauty for criterium bike racing. We estimate approximately 5000+ spectators will enjoy the event in 2017. With the addition of the Fieldstone Criterium in 2017, Cycle Waterloo has created “Speed Weekend” one of the best Criterium Race Events in Canada.
