About the Series…
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to Paxton’s beautiful park this summer for a short season of Tuesday-night* races, kicking off late June. For 2021 the Government’s un-locking timetable prevents us from starting any sooner and even the dates we have planned are subject to change according to guidance that will be issued over the coming months.
* STOP PRESS * For August, Mondays are the new Tuesdays! Owing to events being programmed by the South Facing Festival, Crystal Palace Crits during August will be rescheduled to Mondays.
If we can go ahead, the races will take place within the grounds of the 2020 World Cup-winning champion of south-London parks. All entry fees go towards providing exciting, efficient and safe racing for all competitors, from budding espoirs to Elite category riders – and any surplus is reinvested in racing activities within the South Eastern region.
Organised by Dulwich Paragon CC – unstintingly supported by associate clubs, sponsors and a small army of volunteers – this unique race series is one of London’s most anticipated and best supported amateur cycle racing events.
