DOWNER CLASSIC, JUNE 25TH 2016
The Downer Classic is one of the longest running criterium races in Milwaukee and is wildly popular with racers and spectators alike. Located just blocks from Lake Michigan, the Downer Classic is a fast paced four turn criterium course. Long straightaways and huge crowds amplify the action to a frenetic pace.
The Downer Classic Fixed Gear Race will be counted as Race 2 of the Fyxation Open, and will be a feature event of the Tour of America's Dairyland (ToAD) race series; both men's and women's Fyxation Open points series races will be hosted. Prizes, primes and cash will be awarded with points going toward the grand prize for the series winner presented at the Chicago Criterium on July 26th.
