Statesville Criterium Bike Race
For the 17th year in a row, the streets of Downtown Statesville will come alive with the speed, color and crashes of the Statesville Criterium Bike Race being held on Friday, August 4th. This event, organized by Charlotte Sports Cycling, is one of several criterium races involved in the Giordana Crossroads Classic being held this year in several cities across the Piedmont of North Carolina. The races will begin at 6:00 pm and get faster as the sun starts to set with the feature Pro race highlighting the evening at 9:00 pm.
In between the races, watch the 2017 Trike Races brought to you by D’Laney’s Sports Bar & Grill. These races will start at the square and end in front of D’Laney’s at 114 W. Broad Street. The trike races will run at 6:35 pm, 7:20 pm, 8:05 pm, and 8:55 pm. We encourage spectators to come out for the night with the whole family, grab dinner in downtown, and check out the fast action of the World’s top cyclists. Inflatable rides for the kids will be provided at no charge on East Broad Street. Please mark your calendars for this great downtown event. If you have any questions, please call us at 704-878-3436 for more information.
