This live video stream will give cycling fans a chance to have a virtual front row seat at the Criterium, and feature professional commentary from race announcers Dave Towle, Todd "Go- Go" Gogulski, and John Verheul.
"It's really exciting to work with J.D. Healy [of ProView] again to bring the live Criterium video to a much bigger audience, so that cycling fans who can't be in Silver City for this fast- paced race will able to watch it wherever they might be." ~ Jack Brennan, Race Co-Director
The Downtown Criterium runs right through the heart of historic downtown Silver City New Mexico, and begins at 8:00 am with a 12 lap, 12.9 mile race for the women's category 3 and 4 racers. The stage continues with another eight races across other categories throughout the day.
The day's racing will build in speed, up to the women's Pro and category 1 and 2 racers, who will be starting their 25 lap, 27 mile course at 3:00 pm, and then the men's Pro and category 1 race, which begins a 40 lap, 43.2 mile course at 4:15 pm.
The live streaming video will be featured on the Tour of the Gila website http://tourofthegila.com, VeloNews.com, the New Mexico Tourism website http://newmexico.org, as well as ProView's own site http://nmaafilms.ezstream.com/
