Frequently Asked Questions:
Does this series count toward upgrade points?
Unfortunately I can’t offer any upgrade points until I’m a level 2 coach which most likely won’t happen until next year. I do envision that being the case in the future! Until then, I’m hoping that it at least offers people the opportunity to practice safe criterium racing practice.
