the story of american criteriums

All year long, Fasturdays goes handlebar-to-handlebar, deep into the loud, fast, beautiful and mysterious sub-culture of "crits." Crits are the heart of the "speed-scene" a genre of racing that spans track, fixies and road, where the emphasis isn't going long, but going fast. Very, very, fast.  Hold on tight, this is bike racing at its fastest, most dangerous and thrilling form.

 It’s a world of horse power, passion and hard fought respect. But also, a world of breath-taking grace and deep generosity between friends and community.

The grind and glory, the premes and pain, the bonds and broken bones. This isn’t a race. It’s a cult.
