Day 1: Friday, August 31st
Tour de Lafayette

Presented by Studio 2108


Join the Lafayette Square neighborhood and business district as the first leg of the Gateway Cup gets underway in St. Louis’ first historic district, this nighttime Criterium will take place under the lights on a flat, wide-open 0.9-mile course with four 90-degree turns.

Now home to many unique shops and restaurants, the Lafayette Square neighborhood is one of the oldest in St. Louis and boasts the city’s first public park. Created by ordinance in 1836, the park was named in honor of Marqis de Lafayette, a French statesman who served as a volunteer under George Washington during the American Revolution.
