American Criterium Cup Event Number Six: Salt Lake Criterium

By: Peter Discoe  July 13, 2022

On Saturday, July 16th, the Salt Lake Criterium returns to downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. Following an electric race in Boise, the top pro women's and men's cycling teams in the nation and the best local and national amateurs once again toe the line to see who’s the best and who leads the American Criterium Cup series.

Boise was not without some disappointments. After an abandonment due to a crash in Boise where Alfredo Rodriquez with Best Buddies Racing broke his collarbone and will not start Salt Lake. His continuation in the series is uncertain. Project Echelon Racing’s Brandon Feehery, who was also involved in the crash, will be the top points leader at the event, and finished well enough to retain his lead in the Sprint competition.

In the Women's classification, Maggie Coles-Lyster of DNA Pro Cycling leads both General and Sprint competitions, and extends her lead, and Andrea Cyr of ButcherBox Cycling P/B LOOK used her third place in Boise to also cement her hold further on second place overall. While Maggie’s lead seems unsurmountable, as we saw with the Men’s race, anything can happen. Look for DNA Pro Cycling to light up their hometown race this weekend.

The 2022 Salt Lake Criterium Livestream schedule for July 16th starts with the Preshow at 6:15 pm/MST, with the Professional Women's coverage at 6:30 pm/MST, and the Men's at 8:05 pm/MST. Brad Sohner and Daniel Holloway, holder of 21 National titles, will be commentating on both events.


The American Criterium Cup is a ten-race criterium series that elevates the stature of criterium racing in the United States. The series is led by a group of independent criterium race organizers collaborating with and supported by USA Cycling, with input from professional and domestic teams and athletes. Each event has pledged to execute each event with standards of excellence, high production quality, and safety. Organizers of the series have placed $100,000 in escrow with USA Cycling for a series purse to be split equally among men and women.
