INFO             SIGN UP            SPONSORS           RECAP


The 8bar Crit is back in 2021.

We will hold the race this year as part of the X-Race, which is hosted by the FluxRX team.

According to the current status it is possible to hold a criterium. However, should the conditions change by the time, an adjustment of the race format is possible.

The fast and challenging course makes the 8bar Crit an unforgettable experience for riders and spectators.

The registration for riders will be open until July 27th.

If there are still free places, it is possible to register on site for a late registration fee of 10 EUR extra.

All race participants need to be vaccinated, recovered or tested.

 

INFORMATION

The 8bar Crit 2021 is a fixed gear bike race, which takes place on a fast course of about 1km length. All participants must ride a fixed gear bike without brakes. This combination is challenging because not only speed and power is required from everyone, but also intelligent racing behaviour.

To get a feeling for the 8bar Crit, take a look at this video from last years race. The 8bar Crit is not just any race. It is the biggest fixed gear race in Germany.

 

RACE DETAILS

This year we are making some adjustments to the racing modes.  We will do a qualification and a main race.

Warm-up:

Open for all riders to get to know the race track.

Qualification*:

10 riders each heat. One lap to go! Your time counts for the main race.

The fastest 50% of the riders will race in the A, the rest in the B finals.

Crit final*:

The finals will be 30 laps for the men-A, 10 laps for the men-B  and 20 laps for the women race.

*The rules can be adjusted due to the number of participants as well as pandemic regulation.
