HAILEY 4TH OF JULY CRITERIUM BIKE RACE

Hailey, Idaho is rocking on the 4th of July.  Start out the day with your classic apple pie, flag waving hometown parade in downtown Hailey at noon. Then gear up for the 4th of July Crit race, starting right after the parade.  A four-corner course of action and excitement.  This event has loads of cash primes and is spectator-heavy.  On site registration, so show up in Hailey on the 4th and tear it up.

Event sponsored by The Powerhouse, BCRD, and the Hailey Chamber of Commerce.

FAT TIRE CRITERIUM • SV ALL MTN STAGE 3

Tuesday, July 3rd •  6 – 9 p.m.

FAT TIRE CRITERIUM • SV ALL MTN STAGE 3

Packed along the sides of this twisting course through downtown Ketchum are literally thousands of screaming fans cheering on pros, amateurs, and goofball relay teams vying for cold hard cash. Beer gardens, courseside eats, and unbridled enthusiasm make it a great night out on the town.

Register for the Fat Tire Criterium here.
The Ride Sun Valley Fat Tire Criterium marks at long last the arrival of the Thunderdome to the streets of downtown Ketchum. Held on a fast, technical and spectator-stupefying course, this is the race which will make everyone cling to the edge of their seat. Like Evel Knievel said, “Some folks just want to see a man die.”

Starting in front of the Sun Valley Visitor Center with races beginning at 6:00 pm on Tuesday night July 3rd, the Fat Tire Criterium is a multi lap race with amateur and pro categories, kids races and perhaps the most exciting of all, the Ride Sun Valley Stand Off: a four person per team relay race which pits businesses and teams of locals against each other in a quest for Mad Max glory. Prizes will be awarded in both cash and merchandise in all races.

Idaho Pump Track State Championships

Monday, July 2nd  •  6 - 8 p.m.

THIRD ANNUAL IDAHO PUMP TRACK STATE CHAMPIONSHIP

Over a hundred kids and half as many big kids turned out last year to take each other down in this timed race on the Ketchum Bike Park’s buttery smooth track. Adults and kids pack the infield in a great family night of racing and fun.

FORMAT
The classes are divided into different age groups with boy’s and girl’s categories:

-Mini Racing (4 & Under)
-9 & Under
-13 & Under
-Open/ Pro

Based on one run of two timed laps, competitors ‘pump’ their bikes to maintain speed around the course. Three second penalty for any pedal stroke (Open Class, and 13 and Under Class). The fastest two lap time wins.

Registration and Practice at 5pm. Mini Racing Class begins at 6pm, followed by 9 & Under Girls, 9 & Under Boys, 13 & Under Girls, 13 & Under Boys, Open Women, and Open Men. Start times for individual classes based on number of participants.

BIKE PARK DESCRIPTION
Built in October 2009 by Alpine Bike Parks, the Ketchum Bike Park is one of the nation’s premiere public pump track facilities. With an open layout similar to a skatepark, the Ketchum Bike Park features full irrigation for perfect dirt, native landscaping, and a large spectator area for families.
