What's Cool In Road Cycling

Red Bull Last Stand in Alamo Plaza October 15

Hundreds of the fastest male and female riders to compete in the criterium road race around the famed Texas landmark

WHAT: The city of San Antonio will welcome, for the first time, Red Bull Last Stand on Saturday, October 15. The race will give a Texas-sized overhaul to the typical crit race, and will use an ‘Eliminator’ format. In this cutthroat setup, the rider who crosses the finish line last on each lap gets eliminated until there’s just one rider left to take their final celebration lap.

The night-time event will be free for all spectators and will offer spectacular views of the iconic Alamo Plaza, where athletes will be flying around the flat, fast and technical nine-turn, half-mile course at speeds of up to 40mph.

WHO: The event will consist of four races: Fixed Gear Women, Fixed Gear Men, Geared Women, and Geared Men. Winners in each category earn a cash prize, as will the “Double Down” award winners, given to the woman and man who complete the most combined laps in Fixed Gear and Geared races that hold the highest single finish in either discipline.

Some of the top riders in fixed and geared road racing are set to compete, and are excited about the chance to race at this unique, high pressure, historic course.

Fixed gear champ Addison Zawada is looking forward to the challenge, “The Alamo Plaza seems like a perfect home for this format, which will engage the crowd as well as us riders. It’s not over until the white flag waves and there is one rider left standing!”

Other top riders set to compete include San Antonio native Mandy Heintz, Austin’s Colin Strickland, and multi-time crit-racing champ Daniel Holloway, among many others.

WHEN: Saturday, October 15 at 4 pm

Finals Schedule:
Fixed Women- 5pm
Fixed Men- 6pm
Geared Women- 7pm
Geared Men- 8pm

San Antonio, TX
