Some of the fastest cyclists in the country will be in Sacramento on Saturday for the Sacramento Grand Prix, a one-mile circuit course similar to that used for finishing stages of the Amgen Tour of California.
The start and finish line is at 11th and L streets. The first race begins at 1:50 p.m.; the final race, the men's pro competition, starts at 6 p.m. and features 50 laps. There is no admission fee for spectators.
Among the cyclists: Alison Tetrick Starnes, who will race for the U.S. national team at the Pan-American Games; Pascale Schnider, Swiss national champion in road, track and time trial; and Justin Williams, who won the 2010 Sacramento Grand Prix.
The Grand Prix is the third and final leg of Project Sport's Triple Crown; it also includes the Pittsburg Twilight and San Rafael Twilight Criteriums.
