    Charleston Criterium

    This brief article appeared in the Charleston City Paper (Charleston SC):

    SPORTS
    Park Circle Criterium
    Sat., March 29, 8 a.m. and Sun., March 30, 8 a.m.
    Park Circle
    There’s more to cycling than spandex and ripped thighs. It’s a sport that combines mental strength with physical endurance, and in the last decade, it’s been growing across the country. On Saturday and Sunday, Lowcountry Racing is hosting the first ever Park Circle Criterium. Headed by Zack Kratche, the weekend will see almost 300 cyclists compete for cash prizes. While cyclists from all over the Carolinas are expected to compete, Kratche says that a lot of Charleston-area athletes will be zooming along Park Circle. Lowcountry Racing’s team has 40 people signed on, and between another three teams in the area, 60-70 local cyclists have registered. “We’ve been doing races in the area for about 15 years, and this has been an idea for a couple years,” says Kratche. Now with local restaurants like DIG and Orange Spot Coffeehouse as sponsors, the weekend is in full swing. Non-cyclists are invited too. “Spectators can stand anywhere they want along the course, and it’s free to watch,” says Kratche. There’ll even be face painting and a bounce castle for the kids. “Watching someone go through a corner at 30 miles an hour on two wheels is pretty addictive,” says Kratche. - Rebecca Stanley

    Hope you saw it. Unfortunately, the event was last Saturday, and you missed it.
