Experience Downer Avenue on Race Day

The full day of racing, Saturday, June 25, 2022, also features a popular kids’ race, a Belgian Beer Festival, the famous as well as a full slate of racing all afternoon and evening. Food, beer, and family fun complement the twilight pro race that promises to bring pro teams and riders from around the world.
