Defending The Crown

The Alabama Cycling Classic kicks off the new American Criterium Cup calendar with the King of All Crits, the Sunny King Criterium in Anniston, Alabama, April 9th. Returning in 2022 for its 20th year are the 2021 reigning champions, Professional Men’s winner Tanner Ward of Best Buddies Racing, and Professional Women’s winner Harriet Owen of ATX Wolfpack p/b ProBikeKit.
