Sign up for Criterium Training
Posted on May 12 2015
Four Floors Down is a discovery of Shanghai’s disused spaces. We’ve rolled every square inch of this city and have been looking for more places to ride. Places off the beaten track, closed to the public, ripe for informal, impromptu racing. There’s one right under our noses in Jing’an. It’s an underground car-park with enough space to mark out a circuit. We’ve been slipping down there for a couple months to train… with a mind for something big.
Criterium races are short fixed-gear sprints around closed circuits. Four Floors Down is an F5 twist. We train through the columns in a tight, technical laps and push for shaving personal seconds with the right line. If you’re interested in challenging yourself in a different kind of discipline then join us at our next training session.
It’s tough, so you’ll need to in good form. Your bike must be fixed-gear with risers or bullhorns. For now we train with or without brakes. Helmets and gloves are mandatory. We’re taking it casual: the first sessions are training and individual time trails.
The next session will be tomorrow Wednesday 13th, meeting at 7:30pm at Factory Five. It will run until 9:30pm and we’ll grab food and drinks afterwards.
We have a limited number of 20 places. Pre-registration by email is essential to firstname.lastname@example.org.
