Venga Venga Venga is a celebration of Crit Racing which we love because it’s a party. About a Knife Fight. In kit. With teams and tactics and cornering and crashing and sprinting. Everyone’s sweating. Everyone’s yelling and clapping. It’s hot. There are drinks and barricade butts and eating food on paper plates while sitting in the street. The Fans love it. Ams love it. Pros are about it. And it’s happening all over America in downtown Pain City.
And everyone is invited because like we said, it’s a party. Which is why in addition to showcasing the people and places of Crit Racing, VVV is about promoting and nurturing and fostering as much inclusivity and diversity and accessibility as is possible. Which is why, with the help of our sponsors – Cycling Tips and Cannondale – we created the Do Racing Grant.
It’s small, it’s humble, it’s for anyone and everyone that is part of a traditionally marginalized and/or underrepresented part of our crit racing community. Are you part of a Cat 3/4/5 Womens/ BIPOC/LGBTQIA2S+ crit racing team currently? Are you thinking about starting a Cat 3/4/5 Womens/BIPOC/LGBTQIA2S+ crit racing team? Then this is for you, please apply now.
The application is now closed. Stay tuned for updates.
Inspired by my past and present, not always being the strongest or fastest, the journey allows me to learn to fail forward. My mission is to create an inclusive environment where no one feels left behind. And these days, it’s easy to feel left out. Cycling, let’s take it seriously but not so severely we lose the fun in it. Kindness costs you nothing! I’m excited to pass on my learnings and continue to bring awareness in all facets of sport. Cycling is an opportunity to get healthy, active, and confident; we should all be able to have it.
