Our local crit race is just up the hill at Crystal Palace Park. Races are held on Tuesday evenings during the summer and are a great opportunity for youth riders to move beyond Go-Ride races.
Senior men need to have raced elsewhere and attained a 3rd Category licence before they can race at Crystal Palace. Look out for 4th Category races at the other London circuits and consider getting some coaching, e.g. via the Race Preparation Training run by the South-East Road Race League.
