As a headline event of the Noble Street Festival, don't miss the Sunny King Criterium! A criterium-style bicycle race is like NASCAR on two wheels--with horsepower measured with legs and lungs, not gasoline engines. Join 5000 other adrenaline junkies and watch hundreds of international pro and domestic amateurs race bikes multiple laps around the .6-mile closed course on downtown streets. The pack of 100+ racers are mere inches apart as they take corners at high speeds and negotiate the course on closed streets. And did we tell you the "main event" pro race takes place after dark under the street lights? Don't miss this world class event, selected a Top 10 Event in Alabama and selected to be on USA Cycling's prestigious points series, the National Racing Calendar. Bring the family and enjoy the many other Noble Street Festival events happening throughout the day, including great food in the Red Diamond Restaurant Tour, cool stuff in the Scion KidZone, and live music in the Hot Blast Music Cafe.
