THE Bommarito Audi GATEWAY CUP
The 37th Edition of the Bommarito Audi Gateway Cup takes place in the heart of FOUR unique and awesome St. Louis neighborhoods. The Bommarito Audi Gateway Cup Features the American Criterium Cup (ACC) Final at the Giro Della Montagna. All four days offer equal payout for the women’s and men’s professional races.
Within each of these host communities, the race courses are defined by short one to two mile laps, known as “criterium” format. This Americanized style of racing appeals to both athletes and spectators alike as the peloton, or pack of cyclists, 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, allowing more of an understanding and engagement in the excitement.
There are nine races each day based on ability, gender, and age, ranging from newbies to pros. Each day is punctuated by the featured event, the men’s and women’s professional races. In these races, the nation’s top cyclists will hurl themselves through corners averaging 30 mph towards a thrilling sprint finish. Guaranteed inspiration.
