Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

Cy­clists com­pete Sun­day (above photo) dur­ing the sec­ond Nat­u­ral State Cri­terium Se­ries Pro­duced by BikeNWA in down­town Spring­dale. Hun­dreds of pro­fes­sional and am­a­teur road cy­clists from around the world came to the com­pe­ti­tion in Ben­tonville, Rogers and Spring­dale for a $50,000 prize purse. A cri­terium, or crit, is a bi­cy­cle race that takes place on a short, closed course on city streets. Dozens of rac­ers form a tight group called a pelo­ton, wherein they jockey for place as they nav­i­gate hair­pin turns and bar­rel along straight­aways near­ing 35 mph.
