The 805 Criterium Weekend Avenue of Flags was held in the Central California town of Buellton. The course was on a somewhat technical, slightly undulating .75 mile course with riders from some of the top U.S. Pro teams and top amateur teams lining up. With this awesome and challenging course, a large purse on the line and solid riders lining up along with the heat and wind this had all the makings for epic Crit.

Below is are some photos taken from the scenic 805 Criterium Weekend Avenue of Flags race. Check back soon for more photos from the  805 Criterium Weekend Valley of Flowers Criterium in Lompoc.
