The Downer Classic is one of the longest running criterium races in Milwaukee and is wildly popular with racers and spectators alike. Located just blocks from Lake Michigan, the Downer Classic is a fast paced four turn criterium course. Long straightaways and huge crowds amplify the action to a frenetic pace.
Centered in the commercial hub of Milwaukee's vibrant Bay View neighborhood, the Bay View Classic will offer an exciting race to the 2018 Fyxation Open points series.
