We have courses a selection of crits from Jan, Joris, Alex and Matt of RR, plus one stolen from OTR's Spanish For Improvers series... On average about 24km with 200m ascent making them a perfect start to the weekend on Friday evening, ie 35 - 45 minutes of frenzy. Check them out all looking very nice.

Individual Competitions

  • Open Category (eveyone)
  • Over 45s

All riders will automatically be counted in the open category competition. Unless we are already aware from previous series, for other categories you may need to notify us if we can't get age info from RGT or RGTDB. Please contact Nick Greenhalgh

Team Competition

A separate competition also exists for Teams. Simply contact Nick Greenhalgh to enter your team consisting of a minimum of two people (max of 4).

The aggregate of the best two points results from each team in each event will count to team series standings with the team's best 5 of 6 stages counting to the series.

A club may enter multiple teams but riders can only enter one team. You can add a team, add riders to your team or swap out unused riders in your team up to the beginning of the 3rd round.


Points will be allocated by place using the USA Crit scoring mechanism.

Riders in sub-category (Over 45s ) will have points allocated in the same way for their own standings e.g. the first rider in category across the line finishes 5th in the open category and scores 175 points in the Open Series standings but 200 points in the Over 45’s standings for first place in the that category.

In all categories and both individual and team comps, best 5 of 6 stages will count to the series. Ties in final series standings will be decided based on the best result in the final round that at least one of the tied riders competed in.

Fair Racing

We encourage fair racing and trust the honesty of our participants. But for those averaging well over 4 w/kg, you may on occasion be asked to verify your data. Please don't take this as an offense but a compliment on your performance. If you do not respond promptly to any enquiry or are unable to validate the performance, you will be DQed from results until such point that can be proved valid.

Signing up to eBioPassport.com with a public profile can help avoid conjecture by sharing data to validate your performances.

Note: If any rider suspects another rider of suspicious performance or any other misdemeanor including inappropriate in-ride chat, please first report to the race organiser rather than confronting it yourself through in-ride chat or our social communities.


For any queries or feedback on the series, please don't hesitate to email Nick Greenhalgh or find me on Discord as NickGreenhalgh#6391

Jen Deca's Ikigai series may be a distant and painful memory, but this course lives again. Proved to be most excelent in that series, and I am sure we will prove superb again, as the laps tick away until the final crushendo approaches.

Mat Hammond introduces us to a new crit, this time South Easy London's Crystal Palace Criterum is the circuit we will batter ourselves round in this penultimate round of series 4. The cover photo features Bob who is no longer racing but he has been the man responsible for keeping Crystal Palace crits running these last few years, a proper local hero of the South London racing scene.
