The Charlotte Criterium course is approximately a mile circuit in the shape of a barbell that includes a long straightaway and eight corners. The 2016 course has been redesigned with an exciting left turn through the middle of the race's popular hospitality area. There is a small hill on N. Church Street and a long uphill grade along N. Tryon Street to the finish line. The course is unique in that the entire stretch of Tryon Street is bi-directional and the riders race up and down both sides. There is no shortage of great places to watch the race!
In order to respect the safety of riders and spectators, please remain on the outside of the fence around the course, unless crossing at a designated spectator crossing area. Please do not hang on fencing as riders are going extremely fast and can get incredibly close to the perimeter of the course.
