Register for Skyway Classic Series →

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!
