Welcome to the Mobile Cycling Classic!

 

March 2-3, 2024

Mobile County, Alabama

The 6th edition of the Mobile Cycling Classic is moving from scorching heat of the Summer to a much cooler and comfortable temperature of the Spring.

This edition will feature a new race format that will prove to be challenging for all participants. This new format will consist of an undulating Road Race loop of 17 miles on Saturday morning, followed by a 10km Time Trial in the afternoon at Municipal Park in Citronelle, AL.  Sunday morning, we will begin proceedings with a memorial 5K Fun Run at 8 a.m. followed by the criterium race at 10 a.m.

The Mobile Cycling Classic is sanctioned by USA Cycling permit #8500 and is hosted by the Mobile Sports Authority, the City of Mobile and Mobile County. The cycling event will be done as an omnium with different points structure for each stage based on difficulty. For instance, the road race will contain the most points!

It will be pedals to the metal in Mobile County and we are excited to introduce this new format and race courses at the Classic. Cyclists and runners throughout the region will be in town competing for cash prizes and/or medals.
