8bar Crit 2022!!!
The 8bar Crit is back in 2022.
We will hold the race this year as part of the X-Race, which is hosted by the FluxRC team.
The fast and challenging course makes the 8bar Crit an unforgettable experience for riders and spectators.
The registration for riders will be open until August 28th.
If there are still free places, it is possible to register on-site for a late registration fee of 10 EUR extra.
3G-rule: All race participants need to be vaccinated, recovered or tested.
The 8bar Crit 2022 is a fixed gear bike race, which takes place on a fast course of about 1km in length. All participants must ride a fixed gear bike without brakes. This combination is challenging because not only speed and power are required from everyone, but also intelligent racing behaviour and technical skills.
To get a feeling for the 8bar Crit, take a look at this video from a previous race. The 8bar Crit is not just any race. It is the biggest fixed gear race in Germany.
10 riders each heat. One lap to go!
Your time counts for the main race.
Race C: 10 laps (15:30)
Race B: 20 laps (15:50)
Race A: 30 laps (16:30)
3,2,1 here we go.
The first to finish is the winner.
*The rules can be adjusted due to the number of participants as well as pandemic regulation.
