Looking forward to 2021

For Immediate Release, November 14th, 2020

The 2020 USA Pro Tour Gateway Cup Professional Bicycle Race Looks to 2021. We hope to see you St. Louis next September.

We are proud to be part of THIS WINTER’S Echelon Racing League eSports series on the RGT Platform. You can race the Giro Della Montagna and the Benton Park Grand Prix on December 26th and 27th, 2021.

Big Shark Events and the staff of the Gateway Cup Professional Bicycle Races  made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the races. The Gateway Cup is more than competition, the race series represents the final exam of North American criterium racing and is a celebration of four of St. Louis’ best neighborhoods.

We are all looking forward to a brighter future where we can enjoy coming together as a community to enjoy something as simple as a bike race.

We invite all fans and racers to channel their cycling energy into one of the many virtual, charity rides and races that are occurring  across the US.  Do not stop training, we all share the same roads.

Next year we will expect sold out fields based on the crazy demand for bicycles.

The Gateway Cup Race Series will return September 3rd through 6th, 2021.

Keep the rubber side down and stay safe,

The best professional and amateur cyclists in the US are coming to put on a show over Labor Day Weekend! Four full tilt races in four of STL’s coolest neighborhoods.

Within each of these host communities, we will have an all day program of racing from with amateur categories, kids races, and the Men’s and Women’s Professional races. Each race course is a defined one mile lap and the race format is known as a “criterium.” This Americanized style of racing appeals to both athletes and spectators alike as the peloton pass by every few minutes at impressive speeds holding lines only inches apart from one another. Spectators can watch the race develop lap after lap and hear commentators announce race strategy as the excitement builds.
