BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - After a few years hiatus, the Bike Bakersfield Downtown Criterium races are back in business.
Riders from all over California are expected to be at the event today, which is being held at Mill Creek/Central Park in downtown Bakersfield.
"It's a lot of fun. It's exciting, it's very fast - basically NASCAR on bikes," said Jason Cater, executive director of Bike Bakersfield.
The bike races are expected to last anywhere between 40 to 70 minutes, and there will be about four races going on throughout the day. Racers will be using a rectangular course on the streets around mill creek park.
A total of $4,000 will be handed out in prizes today as well.
