8BAR CRIT 2020 – EVENT DETAILS
On April 18, 2020 the 8bar Crit 2020 will return to Tempelhofer Feld and will take place within the VELO Berlin next to the former airport building. The fast and technically challenging course makes the 8bar Crit 2020 an unforgettable experience for riders and spectators.
The registration for riders and helpers will open on February 5th, 2020 and is open until April 13th, 2020.
The 8bar Crit 2020 takes place during VELO Berlin bike show. For riders and helpers the ticket for the show is inclusive.
The 8bar Crit 2020 is a fixie bike race, which takes place on a fast and technical course of about 1km length. All participants must ride a fixie bike with a fixed gear and 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.
This year we are making some adjustments to the racing modes. The course will be more technical than ever before. There will be no qualifying. Riders can register directly for the A and B race. All those who were in the top 40 in the A race last year MUST start in the A race.
There is a maximum of 80 starting places for the A race and another 80 starting places for the B race. From 20 starters on, there will also be an A and B race for women.
Open for all riders to get to know the race track.
Quarter and semi-finals:
The quarter and semi-finals will each have 10 laps. There are 20 riders starting per run. Each lap the last rider is eliminated until only 10 remain.
The finals will be 19 laps each. It will be raced as long as there is only one rider left
