Welcome to the Mobile Cycling Classic!
May 11 and 12, 2019
It will be pedals to the metal in downtown Mobile and the University of South Alabama campus for the inaugural Mobile Cycling Classic. Cyclists throughout the region will be in town competing for an overall purse of $5000.
Sanctioned by USA Cycling, the Mobile Cycling Classic is hosted by the Mobile Sports Authority, the City of Mobile and Mobile County. The intense, fast-paced, sometimes combative but always fun criteriums, commonly known as crits, will challenge riders as they make numerous laps of the course in a relatively short timeframe. The series of races, which last between 20 and 60 minutes, will be divided by various skill categories for men and women.

DAY 2 – USA PAIN TRAIN CIRCUIT
