The information below is for Skyway Classic 2024. Stay tuned for updates for 2025.

Lots of changes for the 2024 edition of Skyway! This year we are moving the series to a weekend and racing on Saturday and Sunday. With all the extra daylight this gives us, we are also opening up the series to Cat 3 racers for the first time!

Don’t fret, we’re not straying too far from our roots. Skyway will still be focused on giving new racers plenty of experience in a safe and positive environment. This year there will be a 1-hour crit clinic prior to kicking off racing so folks can familiarize themselves with the course and have opportunities to engage with experienced racers. We will also be holding a number of clinics, workouts, and Q&A sessions during the weeks leading up to the event. Stay tuned to our social for more detail.

Skyway is a two-day series that gives newer racers a low-cost, low-tech, nearby opportunity to try out criterium racing and gain valuable experience, skills, and confidence on safe roads in a low pressure environment. It’s also a great way for seasoned racers to stay extra sharp between early season races. Not to mention, the fabulous prizes and primes that await!
