Women's Cycling Event Utah

Women’s Cycling Event near St. George UT

Cedar City UT, just a short drive from St. George UT, will be hosting the Cedar City Grand Prix. This elite all women’s cycling event is a professional road criterium event. The course is short but there will be timed laps before each rider will cross the finish line. First woman to cross the line in a set amount of time will be crowned winner.

The Cedar City Grand Prix’s course is a 1.2K where riders will ride short laps as fast as they can for sixty-minutes. If you are a spectator, you will see the riders pass every 2.5 minutes so it’s going to be a really fast and exciting race. Riders usually cycle at 30mph for the entire hour.

The race will begin at noon on August 4, 2014. They will actually use the same start and finish lines that the men’s Tour of Utah does. The women will take center stage thirty minutes after the men cross the start line. This is the first all female race of its kind in the state of Utah, it’s the perfect opportunity for each woman to show their speed and skills of bicycling.

There is an expected 25,000 spectators that will make this a memorable event for the 80+ riders as they cheer them on during the race. It’s also a unique experience for the spectators since they can get really close to the action. Just don’t reach out and grab anyone in all the excitement. Winnings for the cyclists will vary by winning position. However, there is over $5,000 up for grabs, plus other prizes.

The event still needs volunteers to help. If you are interested you can sign-up on the event website at: .
