SALT LAKE CITY (May 10, 2011) – Utah City Crits, the source for criterium cycling races in cities throughout Utah, announced today that that it has teamed up with seven of Utah's best cities for the Four for Forth and OZone Crit Challenge criterium cycling races, now open for registration. The two series’ represent the first time in Utah’s history where criterium races have been established in multiple cities throughout the state. “Criteriums offer an exciting opportunity for residents in cities throughout Utah to watch elite cycling in a fun and festive setting”, commented Utah City Crits Owner and Founder, Dirk Cowley. “We look forward to offering Utah’s cities a unique and fun activity to enjoy during the summer months.” Criteriums is a fast paced bike race held on a short course run on closed-off city streets, letting spectators watch the action as it unfolds with racers passing by several times, instead of just once per race as in larger “tour” bicycle races.
The first series race will be held June 9 in Pleasant Grove, Utah, one of three cities participating in the OZone Crit Challenge. Sponsored by OZone Fit, a leader in delivering entertaining and social-based fitness programs driven by an innovative rewards system at their training facility in Draper, Utah and through their online portal at www.ozonefit.com, the OZone Crit Challenge will feature two additional criterium races in Draper, Utah on July 13 and Lindon, Utah on August 10.
OZone Fit Co-Founder Darin Toone notes, “OZone Fit is proud to be the title sponsor of the OZone Crit Challenge. We are excited to help Utah City Crits evolve and grow as it establishes a series of criterium races in multiple cities for the first time ever in Utah.” The Four for the 4th crit series will offer residents in four Utah cities the opportunity to enjoy world-class cycling in a family friendly setting over four consecutive days, leading up to the Fourth of July. The series will begin on July 1 in Midvale, Utah continuing on July 2 in Lehi, Utah and July 3 in Bountiful, Utah. The final race will be held on July 4 in Holladay, Utah.
